As an experienced Buffalo DWI Attorney, I often get questions from clients 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, 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.
If you have been charged for DWI or DWAI in New York, contact Arthur Pressman to be your ticket to justice!
