Every DWI Is Different
Drunk driving is always a serious allegation. In Texas there are different charges depending on the level of intoxication, if the driver is underage (DUI), if there was a car accident or injury, and repeat offenses. A felony DWI can include up to 10 years in prison and a $10,000 fine, in addition to other costs from the conviction.
For repeat arrests, incidents with children in the car and following serious injuries, the stakes mount. The penalties become harsher with each DWI, costing more money in fines and threatening longer jail time for the indiscretion.
More Serious Charges Have More Serious Consequences
A felony can damage your prospects outside of court as well. It may limit your job opportunities and future professional licenses, and it will stay on your record. If you’ve been charged with a felony DWI or multiple DUIs, the cost is significant, so it’s key that you hire an attorney who will work with your best interests in mind. Every situation is unique, and the law will not apply the same as it did on a previous offense or in another state.
