Drunk driving in Texas is considered a criminal offense. It really does not matter whether it is a first offence or you have multiple charges. You are answerable and can face either a jail sentence or a hefty fine of $2000 – $10,000 or serve a number of hours of between 24 – 600 community service. Your criminal record as a DWI may also lead to confiscation of your driving license for a period of one year.
Harsher penalties are levied on those found to have killed or maimed a person or driven with a child on board under the influence. This is common, and many people have found themselves under the wrong side of the law and unable to defend themselves in such scenarios. Charles J. Argento & Associates injury attorneys will help you through the investigation, present you in court, and ensure that you are able to fight all the way to project your full rights.
