He'll get off fairly easy. NY isn't all that big on sending DWI people to jail, if they have the $ anyways. I know a few people who simply paid a fine (lawyer fees costing the most), and moved on wih their lives, even without their license being suspended. Hell, there have been plenty of people who have reportedly had 3-10(+) DWIs, and still received minimal jail time. I'm talking people with that many DWIs and killed people while driving. It's a joke.
