Mount Kisco man could face jail time after latest DUI charge

Felony charges for allegedly driving drunk indicate that authorities mean serious business. And anyone facing such charges should be taking the matter just as seriously in protecting their rights. Consulting an experienced attorney is always suggested as a first step.

This may be something that a Mount Kisco man has already done. He was reportedly arrested on Monday night in that Westchester County village. Police say they took the 42-year-old man into custody after attempting to pull him over in a traffic stop. They say that in the process of doing that, the man drove up onto a sidewalk.

Possibly because this all happened at around 11:30 at night, no one was hurt in the incident. That could prove to be an important factor in the man's favor as he works his way through the legal process. But other issues related to the case suggest the suspect could face some challenges.

To begin with, authorities allege that his blood alcohol content was 0.29 percent at the time of the arrest. As readers of this blog likely well know, that's more than three times the legal limit. In addition to that officials say the man is a repeat offender. He has previous convictions for driving while intoxicated on his record from 2012 and in 2013.

That prompted authorities to level a charge of felony drunk driving against the suspect. He also has been charged with two misdemeanors -- driving without an interlock device and driving under a revoked license.  

That last charge represents an interesting twist in the case. Police say the man never actually has had a license. The charge apparently stems from the fact that the man's record from his previous convictions states that his driving privileges were ordered suspended in both those instances.
