Need a DWI Attorney?
If you’ve been charged with DWI, you’ve come to the right place. DWI Attorney T. Wray McCurdy has successfully defended thousands of DWI cases.
What is DWI?
DWI stands for Driving While Impaired, and is the lesser of the two drunk driving charges in Maryland. To be charged with DWI, you must have a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .07 or less. A BAC of .05 or less is considered evidence of sobriety in most cases. However, the level of legal culpability is lower for minor drivers, at 0.02% which is evidence of violation of the alcohol restriction placed on all minor’s licenses by the MVA, and commercial vehicle operators, at 0.04%.
While a DWI charge carries lesser penalties than a DUI, the legal and financial problems can still be very serious. DWI lawyer T. Wray McCurdy is experienced and can get started on your defense today. Wray will get all the details of your case in order to ensure the best outcome in court and with the MVA.
A first DWI offense in Maryland carries a jail sentence of up to two months, a minimum six month license suspension upon conviction and a fine of up to $500. Penalties increase if you were transporting someone under 18 when you were arrested. Penalties also increase for repeat offenders. These penalties are not mandatory and can be avoided, which is why everyone charged with this offense should be represented by an attorney.
