A: Depends on exactly the degree he is charged with, but for 3 DWI's assuming he had no priors and was convicted on each then he is looking at up to 300 days in jail and for the criminal charge anywhere up to 10 years, although generally I see this charged lower so the maximum may only be 5 years. The fact that he destroyed his car and private property obviously would make this a worse case scenario unless other people were injured but he was not charged with that. I suggest you immediately hire a good lawyer for him, most of us Criminal and DWI lawyers offer a free in office consultation so that is the best place to start. But remember the longer he waits to get good representation the harder it will be to get him a good result.
