Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) charges are prosecuted aggressively no matter the state. When a driver makes the decision to drive under the influence of drugs or alcohol they risk hurting themselves or others. Whether a driver harms another or not while driving while intoxicated, the penalties for this conduct are severe.
Under Tex. Penal. Code. § 49.04, a person can be charged with Driving While Intoxicated if they have a Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) of .08 or more or any amount of an unlawful drug or controlled drug in their system while operating a motor vehicle in a public place. It is also important to know that Under Tex. Pen. Code Ann. § 49.01(2), “intoxicated” is defined as not having the normal use of mental or physical faculties due to the consumption of alcohol, a controlled substance, a drug, a dangerous drug, a combination of two or more of the substances listed or any other substance in the body. This means that a person can be intoxicated even if they have a BAC of less than .08 when their abilities are impaired as a result of drugs and/or alcohol.
When someone is arrested for Driving While Intoxicated, they have a mandatory minimum term of confinement of 72 hours in jail. This can result in significant challenges for someone with a job or for someone who has a responsibility that requires their daily attention. DWI convictions can also lead to the loss of certain rights and privileges. This includes, but is not limited to operating a motor vehicle, voting, having a professional license, receiving certain government benefits, and owning a firearm.
