Aggravated DWI Lawyer Buffalo, NY

This educational video on aggravated dwi was provided by Drew Fritsch, an experienced Buffalo DWI Lawyer.

  • Many people don’t realize that there are several different types of DWI charges.
  • Recently, a client who had been charged with aggravated DWI asked, “What is the difference between aggravated DWI and a regular DWI charge?”
  • A person with a breath reading of .18 or higher will be charged with aggravated DWI.
  • While aggravated DWI is still a misdemeanor, its penalties are higher than those for a regular DWI. The fine is from $1,000 to $2,500, in addition to expensive surcharges.
  • The offender’s license will be suspended/revoked for one year, and other consequences may include up to three years of probation and up to one year in jail.
  • Judges are more likely to impose jail sentences for aggravated DWI than for regular DWI, so it’s very important to hire an attorney as soon as possible to help defend against those charges.
