DWI – or driving while intoxicated – is defined as a person operating a motor vehicle in public while intoxicated. Regardless of whether you were under the influence of drugs or alcohol, you can be arrested and charged with DWI if your blood alcohol level is .08% or higher.
Potential penalties for DWI include:
- Fines and surcharges
- Community service
- Higher car insurance rates
- DWI education/intervention classes
- License suspension or revocation
The specific charges you will face depend on various factors including your age, the type of license you have, and other specific circumstances such as if you had other passengers in the car or if someone was seriously injured or killed in an accident caused by you driving while intoxicated.
What to Expect after a DWI Arrest
If you have pending DWI charges, you are facing two legal situations that require exceptional defense: an Administrative License Revocation and criminal charges. The Administrative License Revocation is brought by the Department of Public Safety (DPS), which has the power to suspend your driving privileges anywhere from 90 days to one year or more, depending on your specific case. If you do not have an experienced Brazoria County DWI defense attorney working on your case, you may end up with an incredibly harsh sentence.
