A DWI is problem enough for anyone, but for drivers who are under 21 and charged with drunk driving, a conviction can result in a black mark on your record that can make auto insurance unaffordable or even unavailable to you for years to come.
For a young Yardville, NJ, driver, the expenses from his recent drunk driving charge may be higher still.
Police say that Thomas Walters, 20, was driving while intoxicated around 3:15 in the morning on Monday, September 5, when his car crashed through a wooden fence at Glassboro’s Campus Crossings Apartments and ended up in the living room of one of the apartments, causing substantial damage.
Fortunately, no one was in the unit at the time, but Walters and his 19-year-old passenger fled the scene on foot, returning a short time later, where they were arrested.
If convicted, Walters will face the normal consequences of a DWI, including license suspension and fines, but will also likely have to pay to cover the damage to the apartment building his vehicle struck.
DWIs where property damage exists can end up being wildly expensive, which is why an experienced attorney can make such a big difference in your case.
Don’t risk full exposure to the penalties of a DWI conviction.
