Here’s what you need to know.
Being charged with a DWI is scary enough as it is. Aside from the damage you can inflict on someone else or possible injury, there are serious repercussions that come with getting a DWI.
It is important to comply with the officer. If you do not comply with the sobriety tests needed, this can work against you in your case. There is a myth that if you do not agree to a breathalyzer test, you will not be charged. This cannot be farther from the truth. It is best to take any blood or breathalyzer tests asked of you because your alcohol content may be lower than you think which will help your attorney to plead your case in court.
If you are guilty of a first-time DWI offense, your consequences will be less severe since you are not a repeat offender. There still may be some unfortunate repercussions for your actions. You will probably have your license revoked for a period of time and possibly have your car impounded. You will face a fine from anywhere between $400 to $1000 plus court fees. Jail time is almost inevitable. But luckily if you are a first-time offender, your jail time will be much less than someone who has been guilty of a DWI conviction in the past. For a first-time offender, jail time can be anywhere from a few hours to a few months, dependent upon the severity of the DWI case.
Unfortunately, a DWI on your record can have other terrible ramifications. Some of these can include effecting possibly employment, housing, and car insurance opportunities. If you are a first-time offender, some of these companies may be more understanding than others.
