Possible Penalties for an Underage DWI in New York
The good news is that as someone younger than 21, you aren't facing criminal charges if this is a DUI charge for having a blood alcohol concentration of .02% but under .08%. Of course, losing your driver's license for months at a time can still cause issues in your personal life, and you would still have to pay civil penalties.
However, if an underage driver has a BAC that would be high enough to get a DWI charge as an adult, that is, a BAC above .08%, then you could face the same misdemeanor or felony penalties that an adult would.
For a first-time underage DWI with a BAC above .08%, you could face:
- Up to a year in jail
- Up to $1,000 in fines
- 6 months of driver's license revocation
- An ignition interlock device
For a second or third underage DWI conviction, you could be looking at up to:
- 4 to 7 years in prison
- $5,000 to $10,000 in fines
- 1 year, 5 years, or perhaps longer driver's license revocation
- Ignition interlock device
It may be possible to negotiate a prison sentence to one of community service instead, but that would require the tireless work of a skilled defense lawyer.
