In Texas, if you’re convicted of a DWI, you are facing up to 180 days in jail for a first offense if your BAC is under a .15. If it is a second offense or your BAC is equal to or greater than a .15 you are facing up to 365 days in jail. If this is your third offense or greater DWI you are facing a felony offense. Even if you have never had a DWI before it is a felony if you have a child in the car under the age of 14.

If you’re facing any kind of DWI charges it’s important you talk to an attorney who knows how to handle DWI cases. Often times jail can be avoided. You don’t want to go to jail if it can be avoided. It’s important you find an attorney that knows what they’re doing, that knows the DWI laws, and the cases, and what to look for when they’re fighting your case.
