New York treats DWI offenders and people that are convicted of DWI as criminals. You’d have a criminal record and you’ll also have a mandatory loss of license.
It’s very important that you consult with a criminal attorney who’s versed in DWI defense. A DWI charge is not a traffic ticket. It’s a penal law offense where if you’re convicted or plead guilty, you’ll have a criminal record for the rest of your life.
You’ll also have issues with the Department of Motor Vehicles. They may further revoke your license without regard for the criminal court’s decision based on your overall driving record.
