Driving While Intoxicated Charges in Texas

Strategic Defense from a Cleburne DWI Lawyer

The offense of driving while intoxicated or while under the influence of drugs is not a crime that is taken lightly. Across the nation, states have created various ways over the years to crack down on drivers suspected of a DWI. In fact, it has even become legal in Texas for law enforcement to forcibly draw blood from a driver that has refused to submit to blood and breath tests, in certain situations.

If you have been arrested and charged with DWI in the state of Texas, it is of utmost importance that you retain the services of the knowledgeable criminal defense Attorney Kimberly A. Baker. For nearly two decades, Attorney Baker has been providing the people of Cleburne competitive legal representation. Contact her firm today to begin building a comprehensive case that protects your rights.

What is considered a DWI in Texas?

You are legally considered to be driving while intoxicated if you have a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08% or greater. However, if your mental or physical abilities are significantly impaired due to illegal substances, you could still be charged for a DWI without any alcohol in your system. For drivers of commercial vehicles, such as tractor trailers and semis, the legal limit of impairment is capped at 0.04%.

A first-time DWI offense is considered a Class B misdemeanor and can be punished by the following:

  • Up to 180 days in jail
  • Extensive probationary period
  • $2000 fine
  • 3-month driver's license suspension

The penalties for DWI convictions may escalate due to certain circumstances at the time of your arrest. You could be facing much stricter punishments if:

  • You are under the age of 21 with any BAC level above 0%
  • You have been convicted of a DWI in the past
  • You were arrested with a BAC level above 0.15%
  • There was a minor in your car when you were pulled over
