Generally, what are the defenses to an aggravated DWI?
In the state of NM, my sister in-law blew a .22(.16 is considered an aggravated DWI here). I’m just curious about the possible defenses. I realize every state has different statutes…so generally.
By the way, she does not remember a thing. She left a bar and next thing she remembers is waking up in a cell. The tow service report states they had to remove her vehicle from a ditch.
Don’t get me wrong, I want her to pay the price so she can re-evaluate her lifestyle for the better.
There is none. She got drunk voluntarily and drove her car in that condition. She is lucky she is not being charged with homicide by use of a vehicle.
