First Offense DWI – What to Expect

If this is your first time being charged with DWI, you are probably wondering what is going to happen. Because of the harsh laws against driving while intoxicated in Virginia, even a first-offense DWI could have a severe impact on your freedom and your wallet.

Those convicted of a first offense DWI face several potential penalties, including:

  • A mandatory minimum fine of $250
  • Possible additional fines of up to $2,500
  • A maximum jail sentence of 12 months
  • 1-year license suspension
  • Installation of an ignition interlock device
  • Community service

As you can see, a first time DWI charge is not something that should be taken lightly. It is crucial to obtain qualified legal counsel as soon as possible to start building a defense strategy to fight against your charges.

Enhanced Penalties for DWI

There are several circumstances that can lead to even more significant penalties for those convicted of DWI. For example, if you already have one or more DWI convictions on your record, you will be subject to longer sentencing and higher fines.

Additional situations that can result in enhanced penalties include:

  • A child is in the car at the time of the arrest
  • The driver was operating a commercial vehicle
  • The DWI resulted in property damage or injury
  • The driver was under the age of 21
  • The motorist refused to take a breath or blood test
