There are multiple reasons why DWI penalties would be enhanced including:
- First time offenders with a BAC higher than .15 could be looking at enhanced charges depending on how high the confirmed BAC is at the time of arrest; typically a class A misdemeanor.
- If the DWI resulted in any injuries or death you could be looking at a 2nd degree felony.
- Multiple DWI convictions could carry up to a 2nd degree felony conviction.
- Certain ‘criminal’ history allows for minimum punishment ranges, such as a 15 year minimum and a 25 year minimum.
