If you have been charged with a third or subsequent Rockland DWI, you face overwhelming consequences and a bleak future. In New York, if you’re a third offender, it’s a class D felony offense. You will most likely be treated as a predicate felon. You would be subject to a lengthy state prison sentence of up to 7 years, a fine ranging from $2000- $10,000, a revoked license, and state surcharges and assessment fines. You would probably lose your license. You could lose your license for a 5 or 10-year period or a lifetime ban.
Governor Cuomo has changed the laws recently in New York State. The administrative agency at the Department of Motor Vehicles now has the right to look at a person’s total driving abstract and determine whether they should have a 5-year, 10-year, or even lifetime driving ban as a persistent violator, irrespective of what happens in the criminal court. The criminal court judge can impose sanctions of jail, loss of license, or probation but the DMV has the authority to impose their own separate level of suspension that’s not affected by the judge. It is critical that you contact a criminal defense attorney to fight your case and explore every legal mean to free you from these charges.
