Another happy client had a DWI—Driving While Intoxicated in Queens Criminal Court Reduced to a 0 Point DWAI—Driving While Ability Impaired. Our client was stopped and charged with a DWI when they gave the police officer probable cause to stop them and test their Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) using a breathalyzer test.
Any driver over the age of 21 can be charged with a DWI if their BAC or blood alcohol content is .08 % or greater. Underage drivers can be charged if their BAC is .02 % and commercial/motor drivers can be charged if their BAC is at least .04%.
Our client’s charge was reduced to a DWAI offense. The DWAI offense is the lowest offense for alcohol and drug related charges. This is the only alcohol related charge that is merely a traffic violation (not a criminal offense). Thus, our client will not have a criminal record or license points.
