Felony DWI Defense in Brazoria County
Understanding What Makes a DWI a Felony
Is a DWI a felony? It depends. In most cases, a DWI is considered to be a misdemeanor offense in the state of Texas—but not always. In fact, there are several situations and factors that can cause a felony to be elevated to a felony offense, which results in exponentially harsher penalties and longer-lasting consequences for the defendant.
Just some of the examples of felony DWI cases include the following:
- Third DWI Charge: Where a defendant is convicted of his or her third DWI.
- DWI with Child Passenger: Where a defendant is found to be drinking and driving with a child who is younger than 15 years of age in the car with him or her. This is considered to be a state jail felony.
- Intoxication Assault: Where a defendant causes serious bodily injury while drunk driving; in Texas, an injury is classified as a "serious bodily injury" when it has the significant risk of death, causes serious or permanent disfigurement, or damages a body part of an organ. This is a third-degree felony.
- Intoxication Manslaughter: Where a defendant kills another human being while drunk driving. This is considered to be a second-degree felony in the state of Texas.
