DUI / DWI in Texas FAQ
The penalties you may face for a DWI or DUI in Texas are dependent on a number of factors, with the number of prior convictions and criminal history being the two most influential. Although every situation is unique, the following penalties are what is possible for first DWI convictions:
- Between 3 days up to 6 months in jail
- Maximum jail time increased to 1-year for those with a BAC over 0.15%
- Fines up to $2000, or up to $4000 for those with a BAC over 0.15%
- Suspension of drivers license between 3 months to 1-year
- Jail time ranging from 30 days up to 1-year
- Fines up to $4000
- Suspension of drivers license for between 6 months up to 2-years
- Jail time ranging between 2-10 years
- Fines up to $10,000
- Suspension of drivers license for between 6 months up to 2-years
Although every situation is unique, first-time offenders without any other aggravating circumstances, additional charges, or criminal history typically won’t face jail time.
Some states in the USA have what is known as a “wash out” or “look back” period for DUI and DWI convictions. Those convictions that fall outside of the wash out period are not counted against you and do not stay on your permanent record. Texas, however, is not such as state, and DWI convictions remain part of your permanent criminal record.
Because of this is it even more important that you hire the right legal team to clear your name. Don’t let the prospect of a criminal record forever change your life. Put our DUI attorneys to work and let us do what we do best.
We’ll be in your corner from start to finish.
At a minimum, a DWI conviction can cost you thousands of dollars. Fines can be as high as $6000+, not including court fees. Not to mention time missed from work, or the inability to work due to suspension of your license. Some employers may even opt to fire you over the offense. This is particularly true of any position that requires driving.
In Texas, The Department of Public Safety is responsible for what is known as the Administrative License Revocation Program (ALR). Under Texas law, any person who is arrested for a DWI offense will automatically receive an “ALR Suspension” of their drivers license UNLESS the suspension is contested.
However, those arrested for a DWI only have fifteen (15) days from the post date of the arrest to request an ALR hearing. Failure to do so will result in a guaranteed suspension of your license.
Our firm can schedule and represent you and your case at this hearing, doing everything we can to preserve your license at this stage and ensuring you retain the right to drive.
The state of Texas has what are known as “implied consent” laws. These laws state that all motorists driving on Texas roadways have already consented to being subjected to a breath or blood test if lawfully arrested under the suspicion of driving while under the influence or while intoxicated.
Refusal to be administered such tests can result in the immediate suspension of your license for between 6 months up to 2-years.
Although DWI charges are serious, the right legal challenges, evidence, negotiation and tactics may result in getting charges dropped. In cases where charges “stick”, it is possible to advocate and fight to get them reduced to a lesser charge such as “wet reckless”. This charge refers to a plea bargain in which a DWI is reduced to a reckless driving charge.
The right DWI attorney may be able to seek alternative penalties such as participation in an Accelerated Rehabilitation program (ARD) that focuses on classes about alcohol abuse, driving school and probation, after which you may be able to have your DWI expunged or removed from your permanent record.
Already have a DWI conviction? Don’t let your past haunt you for a lifetime. Our firm may be able to help you obtain a nondisclosure or expungement for your past DWI conviction. An expunction effectively deletes every record of the case ever having existed, allowing you to legally say you have never been convicted of a DWI. Alternatively, a non-disclosure means that no party can disclose that you were convicted.
