Going Deeper into DWI and DUI

Drunk driving is a serious offense that can result in DUI (i.e., driving under the influence) or DWI (i.e., driving while intoxicated) charges. These charges sound very similar, but the difference really comes down to age. If over the age of 21, a person can be accused of a DWI, but if underage, they will more than likely be slapped with a DUI. Texas is a zero-tolerance state when it comes to underage drinking and driving and prosecutes even first-time drunk driving offenders. Texas residents have 15 days to challenge the suspension of their driver’s licenses, so time is of the essence in these cases.


Texas does not allow drivers to operate motor vehicles when their blood alcohol concentration, or BAC, is at .08 percent or higher. Several factors can affect a person’s BAC level, including gender, weight, and the rate at which they ingest drinks. A few drinks may not seem like a lot, but they do add up in a court of law. Therefore, it is imperative for any accused driver to have an expert legal team at their side to properly counsel and defend them.


What Are the Penalties of DWI and DUI?

The penalties of DWI and DUI charges are increasing drastically, and if you are facing either charge, you should contact a reputable attorney immediately. A DWI or DUI could mean losing your license permanently or facing jail time. For the first incident, for example, defendants can receive at least 72 hours of jail time as well as a fine of up to $2,000. Additional occurrences will result in heftier fines (up to $10,000) and longer prison sentences (up to 20 years).
