Fast Facts About DWIs
In 2019, nearly 200 DWIs were reported by Georgetown law enforcement. For those not as familiar with criminal charges in Texas, DWI stands for Driving While Intoxicated, which applies to anyone with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08 or higher. Drugs may also play a role in DWI cases.
Penalties for driving while intoxicated can range from costly fines to extensive jail time. First-time offenders usually face a license suspension, license retention fee, and a fine. For repeat offenders, the penalties are more severe.
Repeat DWI offenders could face the following penalties:
- Thousands of dollars in fines
- 30 days to one year in jail
- License suspension for a year or more
The judge assigns penalties based on the details of the case like the fatalities, BAC, and possible damages when determining a verdict. Injuries are likely to increase the sentence and may include a payment of restitution to the victim. If you were accused of a DWI crime don’t hesitate to reach out to our team.
How Could a Criminal Record Affect Me?
If you are convicted of a crime, you could develop a criminal record that will follow your name for years to come. As most people know, there is a stigma surrounding those with criminal records. For some, a criminal record can have a lasting impact on their chosen career, and even their living situation. For example, doctors must inform their medical board and any disciplinary board if they have a DWI on their record.
Most employers require a background check to screen potential employees for a criminal record. Many of these background check programs check as far back as seven years, which could be detrimental to your employment prospects. We all make mistakes, and our firm’s objective is to make sure you don’t pay for those discretions or misunderstandings for the rest of your life.
Our firm has helped thousands of clients with their criminal cases. We understand how stressful and damaging criminal charges can be, and we know how the stigma of a criminal record can follow the accused for a long time. That is why you must consult a qualified team of legal representatives to build a strong case on your behalf.
