Texas Drunk Driving Penalties

We understand that you and your family may be feeling overwhelmed and stressed out about the charges you are facing. The penalties of being convicted for DWI are very serious, especially if there are other factors involved. In most cases, the penalties are decided based on whether you have a prior record of driving while intoxicated. Some of the penalties you can expect to face include:

  • Time in jail
  • Suspension of your license
  • Large fines

If you had a child in the vehicle at the time of the arrest or if you are being accused of causing injury or death in an accident, the consequences could be much more serious.

The penalties for DWI under the state law are:

  • First time DWI: 72 hours to 180 days in prison, 90 day to 1 year license suspension, and up to a $2,000 fine.
  • Second time DWI: 30 days to 1 year in prison, 6 months to 2 year license suspension, and up to a $4,000 fine.
  • Third time DWI: 2 years to 10 years in jail, 6 months to 2 years license suspension, and up to a $10,000 fine.

Exploring Effective Defense Strategies

Our Fort Worth criminal defense lawyers' goals are to gather all of the necessary evidence from the time of the accident or arrest to use in your defense. There are various defense tactics that may be able to clear your name, including:

  • Showing that the breathalyzer equipment was not properly calibrated
  • Showing that your breath or blood test were not valid
  • Using a number of other defense strategies

If we can prove that your rights were violated when you were pulled over, we may be able to get the case dismissed. These are just a few examples of the way our firm thinks to help protect your rights and your case. We pay great attention to detail and are committed to doing whatever it takes to achieve a positive outcome!
