Penalties for DWI in Texas

A conviction of DWI can bring a wide range of serious consequences. Penalties will range in severity depending on the specific circumstances surrounding your arrest, though the most important aggravating factors include whether or not anyone was hurt, whether or not you consented to a chemical test, and the number of prior offenses on your record.

A conviction of any DWI in Texas can bring the following consequences:

  • Jail time
  • Expensive fines
  • Increased car insurance rates
  • A minimum 90 day driver’s license suspension
  • Possible use of an ignition interlock device

Texas has some of the harshest penalties for DWI in the nation. Unlike other states, Texas does not offer accused persons the opportunity to have their sentences reduced to a “wet reckless” offense under any circumstances.

In addition, Texas does not have a “lookback” period in which a prior DWI can only be considered for sentencing purposes if it was committed within a certain amount of time before the subsequent offense. Even if your first DWI offense occurred more than 20 years ago, it will still be considered a prior offense and be used to increase the penalties you face. Since certain DWIs can cause a person to face up to ten years in prison, it is imperative you contact our office as soon as possible to evaluate your situation and determine the most appropriate strategy to pursue in your defense.
