The Suffolk County defendant is expected to appear in the Suffolk County first district court in Central Islip for arraignment. It is unknown if the defendant retained a Suffolk County DWI lawyer at this time. If it is the defendant’s first DWI it is likely that the defendant will be put on probation for 3 years as well as go to jail for anywhere between 30 and 90 days or more and will be pleading to a misdemeanor driving while intoxicated. Based upon the facts and limited amount of information. If the person has a prior DWI it is likely that they are going to be going to jail for even more time or maybe charged with a felony.
