Felony DWI

Texas law is strict regarding driving while intoxicated. Anyone who considers it a good idea to get behind the wheel of a car while intoxicated runs a risk of being pulled over and arrested for a crime. The first time a person is pulled over and charged with a DWI in Texas, it’s considered a misdemeanor. The first one is a Class B misdemeanor, the second a Class A, and the third time you’re pulled over and charged with a DWI it becomes a 3rd degree felony charge. This is more serious, and it’s not a situation you want to find yourself in without the assistance of an experienced attorney. Several things can take a regular DWI and turn it into a felony charge.

1.Driving with a child younger than 15. It doesn’t matter your age or alcohol level at the time of your arrest. If you have a child younger than 15 in the car, you can be a first time offender who still sees charges raised to a felony.
2.Your DWI caused someone else serious injury or death. This automatically turns a DWI into a felony charge.
These charges come with much higher fines and longer jail time, which means you’re going to need an attorney. An attorney can challenge the results of breath and/or blood tests, the arrest, and we can work to make sure your case was handled correctly or it will be dismissed. Felony DWI is a dangerous charge to live with, and it can even result in the total loss of your license for two years or longer depending on the severity if the details when you are charged. Don’t let an arrest happen without contacting an attorney experienced in helping clients with a DWI.
