Texarkana DWI Defense Attorney
What are the Penalties for DWI in Texas?
In Texarkana, there are strict rules and harsh penalties for driving while intoxicated by drugs or alcohol. If you are pulled over by police and your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is 0.08% or higher, the courts could treat it as a DWI “per se,” meaning that no further proof will be necessary for a DWI conviction. Drivers who are under 21 years old who are pulled over and found to have any drugs or alcohol in their system can also be convicted of DWI.
A DWI conviction is likely to have serious, painful consequences, such as:
- Months to years in jail or prison
- Thousands of dollars in fines
- Community service
- Suspension and/or revocation of your driver’s license
- Having to disclose your DWI(s) on applications for employment, loans, educational programs, etc.
- Loss of employment and damaged career prospects
- Increased auto and health insurance premiums
- Giving an unfavorable impression of your character in future legal proceedings involving civil, criminal, or family law matters
Even though you might think DWI/DUI's are not a big deal when compared to other criminal offenses, there are many consequences of being arrested for DWI/DUI that many people overlook. Your driving privileges can be suspended, you could lose your job, and, if convicted, you might have to pay an expensive surcharge just to get your driver's license back.
