The consequences of driving drunk can be severe. Therefore, it is critical to aggressively defend against such charges. When a driver is convicted of operating a vehicle in Minnesota with a blood level above 0.08 percent, that driver will face consequences. In Minnesota, there is a spectrum of four degrees of offense surrounding drunk driving. The penalties increase depending on the degree of the conviction.
A fourth degree DWI offense, the least severe but certainly still serious, will result if an individual has no prior aggravating factors or convictions. Such a conviction could mean that an individual has their license suspended, and the consequences intensify in severity from there.
