As an experienced Buffalo DWI Attorney, I am often asked about DWI Plea Policies. In New York State, every county district attorney’s office has a different plea policy on DWIs. In most counties in the western New York region, a .13 or lower for a first-time offender, where there is no accident involved. This may get your charges reduced after negotiations between your lawyer and the district attorney to a non-criminal driving while impaired charge.
If you have prior convictions for any alcohol-related offense, or if there was an accident involved, most district attorneys’ offices will not offer you a plea, and the matter will be set down for trial.
Have you been arrested for a DWI and want to see if you are eligible for a plea policy? Contact experienced Buffalo DWI Attorney Arthur Pressman to be your ticket to justice.
