DWI has its own sentencing structure. Its not based on misdemeanor sentencing or felony sentencing. Instead, mitigating, aggravating, and gross aggravating factors are considered. This means that if you have more mitigating than aggravating factors, you will receive a lower sentence than if your case involved more aggravating factors. There are five levels of sentencing – 5 being the least serious, and 1 being the most serious. If a driver has one or more grossly aggravating factors, such as driving without a valid license or having a prior DWI, they will spend time in jail.
