Multiple DWI Charges
Houston DWI Attorney
If you have a previous drunk driving conviction on your record, you could face enhanced penalties including jail time, thousands of dollars in fines, community service, mandatory attendance at a Victim Impact Panel, the installation of an Ignition Interlock Device (IID) and more. It is very important that you take immediate action to protect your legal rights if you are facing another DWI charge.
Your Houston DWI lawyer should take the time to investigate every aspect of your case, including which field sobriety tests the arresting officer(s) took, whether the officer(s) had a reason to pull you over in the first place (probable cause) and any other aspect of your case that is important to your defense. With the help of an experienced attorney, you could be able to greatly enhance your chances of receiving a reduced sentence or even a dismissed case when possible - of course, it is always the ultimate goal to achieve a case dismissal.
Penalties for a Third or Subsequent DWI
If you are charged with a 3rd DWI and you are convicted, you could face the following penalties:
- Up to 10 years in prison
- Up to $10,000 in fines
- Felony charge
- Required Victim Impact Panel attendance
- DWI education classes
- Ignition Interlock Device (IID) requirement
In addition to the above penalties, you could even be barred from establishments serving alcoholic drinks or alcohol.
