DWI Defense in Texas

Being charged or arrested for multiple DWI in Texas is serious. You could be facing prison time, fines, alcohol or drug treatment, a seized license and more. If you have been charged with a multiple DWI offense, you are going to need help. Seek representation from a criminal defense attorney in Conroe to help defend against your charges. Texas is strict on DWI laws, if you are under age 21 and have any detectable amount of alcohol in your system, you could be arrested for a DWI. The Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) limit for drivers above age 21 is .08%. Contact Douglas W. Atkinson, Attorney at Law today to secure a solid defense for your DWI case.

Multiple DWI Penalties in TX

The consequences of a DWI offense will depend on the number of previous offenses as well as your age, license type and the results of the offense. If you are facing your first DWI offense, you are at risk of jail time, a fine, license suspension, DWI education and the possibility of an ignition interlock device. The penalties only go up from there and increase with each subsequent offense. The consequences that may follow a second or third DWI offense in Texas include:

Second DWI Offense in TX:

  • A fine of up to $4,000
  • Between one month and one year in jail
  • A license suspension for up to two years
  • A surcharge ordered annually to keep your license
  • DWI education or intervention program
  • Possible ignition interlock device installation

Third DWI Offense in TX:

  • A fine of up to $10,000
  • Between two and 10 years in state prison
  • A license suspension for up to two years
  • A surcharge ordered annually to keep your license
  • DWI education or intervention program
  • Possible ignition interlock device installation

The determination of whether or not you will need to install an ignition interlock device (IID) depends on the orders from the judge. If the judge determines that you need an IID you will need to have it installed within 30 days. You may also have to attend a DWI intervention program or some sort of DWI education program; this also depends on the specific orders from the judge.

Defending Against Multiple DWI Charges in Conroe

Texas does not allow for a 'wet reckless' plea bargain, which makes it even more imperative to have skilled representation by your side. Facing DWI charges is serious and you need the proper defense. Douglas W. Atkinson, Attorney at Law can assist you in your defense by making any of the following arguments:

  • Field sobriety tests do not accurately measure impairment
  • Mouth alcohol could have affected the BAC level
  • You could have been "on the rise" and not actually above the legal limit when arrested
  • The performance of the arresting officer was not adequate or in line with proper procedures
  • There are other explanations to the objective symptoms present
  • There was not probable cause for the arrest

By offering valid explanations for your appearance and behavior, challenging the testimony of the officer or having evidence suppressed can help your case. Have experience on your side and team up with Attorney Atkinson for your multiple DWI charges.
