When is a DWI more than just a DWI?
DWI charges rarely come alone. In the least serious cases, they are likely to come bundled with traffic tickets. In the worst cases, they can come with Vehicular Manslaughter charges, carrying sentences of up to 15 years or longer (for persistent felony offenders). In any DWI case it is absolutely imperative that your attorney pick apart the underlying DWI case.
In Ontario County I have seen more than one case where a client was charged with DWAI Drugs because there was a trace amount of THC in their system. In other words, if you smoked marijuana on Wednesday, you won't be high or even remotely under the influence by Friday, but the District Attorney's Office uses the presence of THC in your blood to add on charges, thereby increasing the potential penalties, thereby increasing the likelihood that you will take a plea bargain.
