NY Senate Passes Tougher Drunk Driving Penalties

ALBANY -

New York’s Senate on Wednesday toughened penalties for multiple driving-while-intoxicated convictions, sending “Vince’s Law,” which has already passed the Assembly, to Gov. Andrew Cuomo for consideration, The Associated Press reported. A person convicted of three or more DWIs within 15 years would be charged with a Class D felony, punishable by up to 15 years in prison and up to a $10,000 fine.
