DWI Life Sentence

by Oct 25, 2013DWI / DUI, News Stories, Sam Edmunds

With good legal representation, your first DWI usually can get you a $300 fine and some probation and classes. A second offense might yield a 30 day sentence. More priors, high alcohol readings, and test refusals can make the consequences much worse. In Minnesota, causing injury or death while driving impaired converts the offense to a “Criminal Vehicular Operation/Homicide” and increases the maximum possible penalties dramatically. But did you know that a person can be sentenced to life in prison for a DWI/DUI crime? Check out this story out of Texas at San Antonio Express News, and don’t drink and drive.
