Can I re-open and fight a DWI case from 5 years ago?

Yes, Depending on where the DWI Conviction Occurred
Yes, depending on the county in which you received the original DWAI conviction. You may be able to take advantage of a motion process that permits the old conviction to be re-opened and substituted with a conviction for an alternative, less harmful charge.
Re-opening cases is very fact specific. You should contact an attorney in your area and make an inquiry as to a possible coram nobis motion.
