Marijuana, Cocaine, Heroin, Meth, Prescription Drugs and DWI

The legal situation is serious; but with the right defense actions undertaken, it may be possible to mitigate the damage to your criminal record and your personal freedom. Whether the drug involved is an illegal drug consumed for recreational purposes, or is a prescribed medication, if it is believed that the drug has impacted the ability to safely operate a vehicle, charges can be filed against you.

DWI Drug Penalties in New York

If you are pulled over by law enforcement and it is believed that you are under the influence of any controlled substance, a blood or urine test will be taken to determine what substance was in your system. If it returns with a positive for any drug that could affect one's ability to drive, the consequences can be significant, including up to $2,000 in fines, and license revocation.

There are hidden costs, including court fees and increased car insurance rates that can make your life extremely difficult – once you have your license reinstated, which could be many months or a year in the future. The penalties are increased exponentially if you have a prior DWI conviction on record.

Glen Cove DWI Attorney

When it is believed you may have been driving while intoxicated with an illegal or prescribed medication, your license will not be immediately suspended as it is with an alcohol-related DWI charge. If you are found guilty or plead guilty, license revocation is generally imposed, among other penalties.

Challenging the Results

The testing for drug intoxication could be challenged, as there are many problems with blood or urine testing, and other substances or physical conditions that could impact the results of the test. You owe it to yourself to get in touch with this firm and have all of the details of your case fully analyzed. There may be the possibility of getting the charges dismissed if there has been an error in testing, police procedure, or a rights violation, among other defense possibilities.
