Facts About DWI in Texas

The DWI statute does not require the person to be "drunk." It only requires that a driver be "intoxicated," which is defined as having lost the normal use of either mental or physical faculties or having a .08 alcohol level in either their breath, blood or urine. The loss of normal mental / physical faculties must be caused by alcohol, drugs, a controlled substance, some other impairing substance or combination thereof in order to violate the DWI statute.

DWI Probation

If convicted of a DWI in Texas, you could lose your driver's license and receive heavy fines and jail time. That's why choosing the right DWI lawyer should be a top priority. If you make the wrong choice, your reputation and future could be adversely affected. With the right legal representation you could receive a probated sentence.

Jail time and even the fines can be reduced with a probated sentence.  There are requirements that must be followed during your probation and these include:

  • No criminal activity during the term of probation
  • Perform specified number of community service hours (approximately 24 to 80 hours)
  • Pay monthly supervisory fees to probation office
  • Report once a month to a probation officer
  • Attend DWI education classes
  • Abstain from any drinking and undergo regular breath tests
