New York DWI Lawyers Helping You to Avoid Jail Time for a DUI

Will My Drunk Driving Charge Mean a Jail Sentence?

Whether a DWI conviction will mean jail time depends on the unique facts and circumstances involved in each case. It is fair to say, however, that most first-time DWI offenders do not receive jail sentences. At Larkin, Ingrassia & Tepermayster, LLP, our New York DWI attorneys understand your concerns about jail and if we are unable to beat the case against you for any reason — you can be sure that we will do everything we possibly can to help you avoid or significantly reduce the length of any jail sentence.

Whether this is your first DWI or your third offense, the sooner you talk to a defense lawyer the better your chances will be to minimize the damage and avoid jail. Call 845-234-4852 or contact us online today .

Our reputation for being willing to take DWI cases to court, and being able to win once there, is a valuable asset when it comes to convincing prosecutors not to ask for jail time or to agree to as little as possible. In the end, the judge will still have the ability to impose whatever sentence the law allows. We will never recommend a deal unless we believe a judge will accept it and it serves the best interests of our clients.

In any case, if avoiding jail is your number one priority, we may be able to negotiate with the prosecutor for various alternative sentencing options, including:

  • Fines
  • Community service
  • Alcohol and drug rehabilitation
  • Installation of an ignition interlock device
  • House arrest
  • Electronic monitoring for alcohol use
  • Probation
