What is a DWI?
In the State of Oklahoma, driving while impaired (DWI) is a misdemeanor charge that occurs when a person is operating a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.06% or 0.07%. Though not as severe as a DUI, a DWI charge carries significant risks to your personal and professional life.
Unlike a DUI, a DWI is not a predicate offense—subsequent convictions will not increase your punishment and the charge will always be categorized as a misdemeanor. That being said, there are harmful consequences of a DWI.
You could face jail time. DWI convictions in Tulsa and Oklahoma can carry up to one year in jail. Also, the State of Oklahoma can revoke or suspend your driver's license, and you could be looking at paying thousands of dollars in fines and court costs for a conviction. Additionally, a conviction will appear on your criminal record and would have to be disclosed on most college and employment applications.
What Do You Do Now?
Being arrested for a DWI can be overwhelming. The first thing you should do is contact an experienced DWI lawyer. The right attorney will be able to skillfully assess your case, and have proven legal strategies that can get you the best possible outcome.
