DWI felony charges leveled against New York woman

When a New York citizen is charged and convicted of a DWI, they may often face judgment from others. Committing the act of driving under the influence can cause people to have a negative perception of the person because it may mean they used bad judgment that could have been potentially dangerous to others. In addition to the negative stereotypes one may face, if another similar incident happens, more serious legal repercussions could be the result. A New York woman knows all too well what can follow a previous DWI conviction.

The woman allegedly played a role in a three-car accident on a New York roadway. According to police reports, the woman allegedly crashed into another person's vehicle from behind. As a result of that accident, a chain reaction occurred and caused the person she hit to crash into the vehicle in front of them.

Police determined the woman to have allegedly been intoxicated at the time of the accident. Upon her arrival to the police department, she was issued with a sobriety breath test. According to the test, she was more than double over the legal limit of intoxication -- .21 percent. As a result of the woman's previous DWI convictions, this DWI charged was listed as a felony.

This New York woman is likely facing a long road of court dates and hearings as a result of this car accident. People in her situation may benefit from knowledge in the area of DWI charges. Had she not been convicted of a prior DWI, she may have not faced the felony charge for this incident. Properly understanding her legal options now could help her make the best decision based upon the facts of her specific case.
