Will I be able to negotiate a plea bargain for a DWI charge?
Q: Will I be able to negotiate a plea bargain for a DWI charge?
A: Whether or not you can negotiate a plea bargain on a DWI is dependent upon the circumstances. The district attorney’s office does not have to offer you any type of a plea, but there is a standard plea offer in most district attorneys’ offices in New York. That depends upon whether you have any prior DWI convictions. If you do, they typically won’t make that offer. If you have an accident that involves some level of injury, then they typically will not make a plea offer to you. But if you have a relatively low reading, and there is no accident involved, and there is no prior conviction involved, then typically they will offer you a plea negotiation down to Driving While Impaired.
