Long Island DWI lawyer Jason Bassett releases a new article (https://jbassettlaw.com/what-happens-to-my-license-after-a-dwi-on-long-island/) that explains the long-term consequences of a DWI offense on Long Island. The lawyer mentions that DWI is taken very seriously in the state of New York. This is why it is very important for someone to really understand the consequences of a DWI offense.

“Here in New York, driving while intoxicated is a crime. But there are varying degrees of alcohol and drug-related charges, all with different charging criteria and penalties. What you are charged and convicted of will determine what your penalties are and what ultimately happens to your license,” says the Long Island DWI lawyer.

The lawyer explains that being charged with a DWI in New York means that the person is driving a passenger vehicle with a blood-alcohol level of 0.08 or higher. A person may also be charged with a DWI if there is evidence that they were operating a vehicle while they were intoxicated. For commercial drivers or vehicles, the BAC should be less than 0.04.

Attorney Jason Bassett also says that there are also variations of DWI charges. These include aggravated DWI, DWAI-Alcohol/Driving while ability impaired by alcohol, DWAI-drug, and DWAI-combination. Drug or alcohol-related convictions can cost an individual their driver’s license and they can also face jail time.

In the article, attorney Bassett explains that a DWI charge can affect a person’s life significantly. These charges can present problems in an individual’s future employment, housing privileges, and even their education. Criminal convictions such as a DWI come up during background searches and landlords or employers may be able to see this and affect how they see the person.

Furthermore, the defense attorney says that DWI cases can be very complicated. This is why it is very important to seek the help of an experienced criminal defense attorney when it comes to matters such as a DWI charge. A skilled lawyer may be able to help the defendant protect their freedom and understand their rights in the case. The lawyer may also be able to help the defendant receive a favorable outcome by creating a solid defense strategy.
