What Is the Difference Between a DWI & an Aggravated DWI?
A DWI (driving while intoxicated) charge means that the defendant was operating a motor vehicle on a public road while “intoxicated" due to alcohol or another controlled substance, whereas an aggravated DWI charge means there are special circumstances involved in the case.
