The Penalties of a Commercial DWI Conviction
Commercial drivers are required to hold a valid commercial driver’s
license, or CDL, and typically depend on this to earn a living. For this
reason, there is much more at stake in a commercial DWI case when compared
with a standard one. The penalties of a first-time conviction include:
- CDL suspension of at least 1 year
- Up to 1 year in jail
- Fines up to $1000
As a result of the suspended commercial driver’s license, however,
there are typically many more “hidden” consequences of a conviction.
Oftentimes, convicted drivers will lose their jobs, and will struggle
to make ends meet. Furthermore, the DWI conviction will stay on their
driving record, making it harder to get a job once the license is reinstated.
It is absolutely crucial to hire a tough Rochester DWI defense attorney
who will aggressively fight the charges against you.
