New York is cracking down on drivers who operate vehicles while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. In the past, offenders could often get away with only a slap on the wrist, but today law enforcement officers, prosecutors, and judges are intent on arresting and punishing offenders.
The consequences of being convicted of a drug or alcohol-related driving offense are serious. Punishment can include: jail time, hefty fines, license suspension or revocation, community service, and/or the forced installation of an ignition interlock device in your vehicle. In fact, in NYC, if you are found guilty of, or otherwise plead guilty to an alcohol related crime, you will be required to have an ignition interlock device (IID) installed on your vehicle, or a vehicle of another that lives in your home that you have access to. If you don't own a vehicle, or have sold it since your DWI arrest, there may be ways to avoid the IID installation requirement and so you should speak with a lawyer to discuss same.
Other non-legal consequences can also flow from a DUI Convicition - offenders’ insurance rates increase dramatically, and a misdemeanor conviction can result. Having a misdemeanor conviction on your record will give you a permanent criminal record which can negatively impact your employment prospects, your ability to find housing and other things not related to driving. Once you have a misdemeanor on your record, there is no "second bite at the apple" so to speak, as New York does not allow expungements (except in very narrow instances, such as some drug related offenses) like some other state do.
