Cuomo expected to sign tougher drunken driving law


Gov. Andrew Cuomo is expected to sign an amendment to New York's laws against drunken driving that would turn three DWI-related offenses within 15 years into a felony.


Possible penalties for the felony are up to seven years in prison and a fine up to $10,000.


The measure is called "Vince's Law" for a man killed in suburban Syracuse by a driver with five prior offenses.


Authorities say the driver's blood-alcohol content was four times the legal limit


The law would take effect Nov. 1 and apply to offenses after that.
