DWI Priors and Aggravating Factors

DWI Priors and Aggravating Factors


169A.09 DETERMINING QUALIFIED PRIOR DWI INCIDENTS.

Prior impaired driving convictions and prior impaired driving-related losses of license must arise out of a separate course of conduct to be considered as multiple qualified prior impaired driving incidents under this chapter. When a person has a prior impaired driving conviction and a prior impaired driving-related loss of license based on the same course of conduct, either the conviction or the loss of license may be considered a qualified prior impaired driving incident, but not both.


169A.095 DETERMINING NUMBER OF AGGRAVATING FACTORS.

When determining the number of aggravating factors present for purposes of this chapter, subject to section 169A.09 (sanctions for prior behavior to be based on separate courses of conduct), each qualified prior impaired driving incident within the ten years immediately preceding the current offense is counted as a separate aggravating factor.
