DWI charges in Texas include other illegal substances and prescription drugs, apart from alcohol. The enforced zero tolerance law imposes harsh charges against first-time and subsequent offenders, including:
- All offenders must spend jail time that ranges from three to 180 days.
- First-time offenders may need to pay a fine of a maximum of $2,000.
- Beginning with a first-time offense, drivers will lose their driver’s license for 90 days up to one year.
- Upon expiration of the suspension, offenders have to pay $1,000 to $2,000 annually for three years to retain their license.
- Offenders may be subject to having their vehicles confiscated or required to install an ignition interlock device.
You should not face your DWI charges alone. Based on the specific circumstances of your case, attorney Clarissa Fernandez Pratt will construct a strong strategy focused on protecting your rights, future and ability to drive.
Implied Consent And Refusing To Take a Breathalyzer Test
Every individual holding a driver’s license provides their implicit consent to take a chemical test upon request by an authority to determine blood alcohol content (BAC). If you refuse, your license may be suspended for 180 days. However, the possibility of malfunctioning breathalyzers and improper law enforcement procedures may aid in your defense.
