The Right Attorney To Help You Fight Your Third-Degree DWI Charges
If you have a current charge of DWI or if you have one prior alcohol-related incident or DWI conviction in the past 10 years and test over .08% blood alcohol content (BAC), you will likely be charged with third-degree DWI. Another reason that you would incur the charges for a third-degree DWI is if you were charged with a first-time DWI offense but also had one of the following aggravating factors present:
- A child in your automobile with you
- A refusal to submit to a test
- Testing .2% or more
- Going through railroad track stop arms
- Being involved in an automobile accident where injuries were inflicted or even resulted in death
These charges should not be treated lightly. Instead, seek the help of an aggressive and skilled criminal defense attorney by contacting Martin Law Offices, PLLC.
Penalties For Third-Degree DWI In Minnesota

A third-degree DWI can be punished by a fine of up to $3,000, a year in jail, and even the confiscation of license plates and the cancellation of one’s driver’s license.
