Dallas DWI Defense Attorneys
Lawyers for DWI Defense in Dallas Texas
In State of Texas, Driving while Intoxicated (DWI) is a very serious criminal offense. According to Texas law, a person is prohibited from driving or operating a motor vehicle in a public place while intoxicated. Texas law defines intoxication as:
- When a person uses an alcoholic beverage, drug, controlled substance, or any combination of it, and as a result, loses his or her mental or physical abilities in the operation of a vehicle.
- A person’s blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is more than 0.08 percent
The Texas law regarding driving while intoxicated (DWI), is extremely complex. An arrest is dependent the amount of impairment and exactly what the individual was doing at the time. A blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08% or higher is legally intoxicated, but an individual can still be arrested with a lesser amount if they are found behind the wheel.
The penalties for a DWI conviction in Texas depend on the exact circumstances of the incident. The court will look how far over .08%, the maximum BAC (blood alcohol concentration), the defendant is. The penalties become more severe if illegal drugs are involved, or if it is a repeat offense. If you were involved in a car accident when driving while intoxicated (DWI), you may face serious consequences and may also be held liable for a personal injury claim that can be filed against you.
A first time Driving while Intoxicated (DWI) conviction can result in hundreds of dollars in fines, up to six (6) months in jail, having your license revoked up to 9 months, and/or installation of an ignition interlock device (IID) in your vehicle. A second time or multiple DWI conviction can result in punishment of up to 6 years imprisonment, $10,000 in fines, up to 3 years license suspension, and more.
With the complexity of the DWI laws in Texas, and the effect the application of these laws can have on an individual’s freedom, it is highly recommended to meet with an experienced criminal defense attorney to handle your case.
