That would depend on all of the facts of your case, including the record of the three prior DWI's.  A fourth DWI charge says to any court that you have a serious problem, and you are looking at the highest levels of punishment for DWI -- probably for a second time.

You need a very good lawyer to have any chance of success at bargaining this down.  One place to find qualified attorneys is our website, http://attorneypages.com
