Smart, Strategic Defense Against Felony DWI Charges
In Minnesota, if your blood alcohol content is at least 0.08 percent, you can be arrested for driving while impaired (DWI). If you have already received three DWIs, or a person was seriously injured as a result of you driving while impaired, you may be charged with a felony DWI. This is an extremely serious charge and there are severe penalties if you’re convicted, including up to seven years in prison. As such, it’s critical to immediately contact an experienced DWI lawyer.
