DWI is a serious offense. Due to pressure on the state by MADD (Mothers Against
Drunk Driving) and other such organizations, the District Attorney's
Office does not let offenders off easily. If you have been accused of
driving while intoxicated, you need to ensure that you have a strong legal
representative on your side fighting to protect your rights.
A conviction of DWI could result jail time, fines, as well as the loss
of driving privileges. Even a first time offender could be facing up to
180 days in jail and the suspension of their driver's license for 90 days.
Such were the penalties that our client was facing when she was arrested
for DWI. According to the Texas Penal Code §49.04 (2007), it is illegal
to drive while intoxicated. If your blood alcohol concentration is at
0.08% or above or you were visibly impaired when driving, you could be
charged and convicted of this offense. In this case, however, we were
able to get her charges reduced from DWI to obstructing a highway, which
is a Class B misdemeanor. This is different from a DWI conviction and
will usually not affect your insurance rates in the future.
