Multiple DWI Collin County Attorney

Multiple DWI offenders face potentially harsh penalties if convicted in Texas.

Driving While Intoxicated (DWI), legally speaking, means you were found operating a motor vehicle with a blood or alcohol concentration of .08 or above. Texas law enforcement is coming down hard on DWI offenders and the penalties are severe. For a first time offense alone, you can be fined up to $2,000 and be incarcerated for 3 to 180 days. Beyond the first offense, penalties incrementally crime. Multiple DWI offenders run the risk of even more substantial fines, jail time, and other penalties.

A DWI carries harsh consequences and means you will carry around a criminal record if convicted. Multiple DWIs involve even more severe repercussions. Attorney Michael Price II, Board Certified Criminal Law specialist, by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization and by the National Board of Trial Advocacy, is here to help you fight your DWI whether it be your first or a multiple DWI situation.

What are the Penalties for Multiple DWIs in Texas?

A second DWI, like a first DWI, is considered a misdemeanor absent aggravating circumstances. Penalties for a second DWI conviction include:

After two or more DWI convictions in five years, state law requires installation of an ignition interlock device. This is a switch that will prevent you from operating your vehicle if you have been drinking.

A third or subsequent DWI is considered a felony. Penalties may include:

Additionally, Texas has no lookback period meaning that regardless of when your first two DWI convictions may have occurred, they will be included as “priors” for purposes of calculating your third DWI offense.

Multiple DWI convictions will land you with serious fines and lengthy jail sentences, not to mention a criminal record. Contact Mike today to fight your DWI charge.
