Austin, TX DWI Lawyer
Criminal Defense Attorney
Driving While Intoxicated or Driving Under Influence means the same thing in Texas, but Texas chooses to define this crime as Driving While Intoxicated. Hiring an Austin TX DWI Lawyer is critical.
If you are charged with a DWI, it is not the end of the world, but it is a criminal matter that should be taken very seriously. If you are convicted of a DWI, the punishment could be fines and time spent in jail.
The degree of punishment varies on the facts of each case. In Texas, if a person is convicted of this crime and had a blood alcohol level higher than .08, the punishment is classified as a Class B Misdemeanor. Class B Misdemeanor means the person could pay up to $2,000 in fines and spend between 3 to 180 days in jail.
Additionally, if convicted of DWI you could have your licensed suspended, attend mandatory DWI education programs and community service.
Also, keep in mind that if a person has an open container of alcohol or the alcohol level is higher than .15 and is convicted of DUI, the punishment is more severe.
