Penalties for a DWI in Texas
Being charged with Texas DWI can have serious consequences. Texas DWI Laws carry mandatory fines and jail time that can extend to ten (10) years in prison. Even a first time DWI offender faces a jail term of 72 hours to 6 months, fines of up to $2,000 and loss of Driver’s License. A conviction will result in a criminal arrest record.
After every arrest for suspicion of drunk driving, the Texas Department of Public Safety automatically takes action to suspend your driver’s license. If you do not request a special administrative hearing within 15 days of the date of your arrest, you will lose your license. Be aware that this is a separate action from the criminal case.
