As with any criminal charges, a person charged with DWI is usually charged and if found guilty, the penalties may include;
Jail time it is classified as a misdemeanor or and is punishable with several days for a first-time offender up to six months of jail time which may be increased under certain circumstances.
Driver’s license is usually suspended or revoked for a period of time, usually a minimum of 90 days for the first offender, one year for the second offender, and three years for a third-time offense. This is usually effected 40 days after the charge.
