I know this is WAY late, and your case has probably been handled long ago, buyt I had one DWI while I was living in NYC. I was beyond intoxicated, I was destroyed. I'm not proud of it, believe me. Anyhow, the judge in the preliminary hearing decided that I was honestly remorseful, which I was, and I got time served ( I spent a day in jail while I waited to see the judge), some community service, a license suspension and a fine. I got lucky, in that in NYC, a DUI is a more severe crime than a DWI (strange, I know), but essentially a DWI means that you could have been under the influence of anything, not just alcohol. I slipped into the psychiatric drug category (ativan, at the time). Hope this post finds you well.
