A Former District Attorney Now Fighting For Your Rights

DWI On A Boat

This educational video was provided by Drew Fritsch, an experienced Buffalo DWI attorney.

  • Western New York offers many places to go in a boat, and it is important to realize that BWI – boating while intoxicated – carries many of the same penalties as DWI.
  • Because of its seriousness, anyone charged with BWI should hire an attorney to work with them.
  • Although BWI will not cause a driver’s license to be suspended, if the boater has prior DWIs, those will be considered by the court when imposing its sentence.
  • Also, a person with a BWI conviction who is later charged with DWI will find that the BWI conviction will affect that sentence.
  • For these reasons, it is advisable to hire an attorney to defend your BWI case.

Were you or a loved one charged with boating under the influence? Don’t plead guilty until you know all of your options.
