DWI's: LET'S SAY I DRIVE A TRUCK FOR A LIVING? WHAT IF I HAVE A DUI IN ANOTHER STATE, PERHAPS? WHAT DOES THAT DO FOR MY CASE, AND HOW WOULD YOU DEFEND ME?

In New Mexico, DUI's in other states will count against you in New Mexico, and every DWI you get brings greater punishment.

  • First simple DWI, there is no mandatory time limit, and the maximum is 90 days.
  • Second, there is mandatory time.
  • Third, there will be 30 days mandatory time.
  • Fourth, becomes a felony and it goes up from there.

If you have DWI's in other states, that can make your New Mexico DWI carry much greater punishment. That is something that you want to consider when you are going to trial. If you lose, you are going to be looking at more time than if this had been your first DWI.
