45+ Years of Combined Criminal Defense Experience
Facing a driving while intoxicated (DWI) charge is stressful – a conviction can affect every aspect of your life. You should contact an attorney immediately to ensure your rights are protected throughout the entire process.
At Rodriguez & Gimbert, our Bryan and College Station DWI lawyers have handled numerous cases for our clients and offer the representation you need to reach a favorable outcome in your case. Our firm serves all of Brazos County.
Criminal & Administrative Penalties
Texas law defines DWI as operating a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .08% or higher or while intoxicated by drugs or alcohol. The penalties for conviction depend on the situation, blood alcohol content (BAC), and whether there are any prior convictions. For example, if an accident or injury was caused or the defendant has several prior convictions, the charges and penalties will be more severe.
The criminal penalties for first-time DWI may include:
- 72 hours - 6 months in jail, 1 year for BAC of .15% or higher
- Fines of $2,000 - $4,000
- Community service
- Mandatory participation in a DWI education program
In addition to criminal penalties, there are administrative penalties that affect your driver’s license. If you fail or refuse a chemical test, the arresting officer will confiscate your driver’s license and issue a Notice of Suspension. You have 15 days to request a hearing or your license will remain suspended for 90 days. When you request the hearing, you may continue to drive until a decision is made in the hearing. Our Bryan and College Station DWI lawyers can explain your options, including your eligibility for an occupational license.
Can I Get a DWI Charge Expunged?
If you are a first-time DWI offender whose breath &/or blood test came in below 0.15% and your DWI did not involve another person or result in a car accident, you may be eligible for DWI expungement in Texas. If you are looking to eliminate a DWI charge, contact our firm for your free consultation.
