DWI Penalties Over 20 Years of Result-Oriented Criminal Defense 

DWI Penalties

Consequences of Driving While Intoxicated

DWI penalties are severe even for a first offense and become progressively more so with subsequent offenses. Aggravating factors can also have an effect on the charges filed and resultant penalties. If you are facing a DWI charge, a Liberty County DWI lawyer can help you to understand the potential consequences you face and what might be done in an effort to avoid them. These typically involve some combination of the following, in varying degrees:
  • Jail or prison time
  • Fines
  • Suspension of license
  • Community service
  • Probation
  • Participation in rehabilitation programs
  • Installation of an ignition interlock device on your vehicle
Some DWIs are misdemeanors while some are felonies. In some cases, they may be charged as either depending on certain circumstances and a competent attorney can present a case for the lesser charges being filed. You will be charged with felony DWI if you have three prior DWI convictions or caused injury or death as a result of driving while intoxicated.
