Multiple DWI Attorney in Denton

Contact a Denton County Defense Lawyer

The penalties for misdemeanor DWI charges are not nearly as tough as those for felony DWI charges. If you already have one DWI conviction on your record, your chances of being charged with felony DWI the second or third time around are fairly high. Even if you do not end up with a felony charge, a second DWI offense will likely result in at least twice the penalties.

In any case, you will want to avoid multiple DWI convictions on your record if at all possible. Derek A. Adame, Attorney at Law, has served Denton County since 1998, providing trusted legal counsel and aggressive criminal defense for our clients. We are committed to the best outcome for your case.

The Penalties of Multiple DWI Offenses

A second DWI offense in Texas can mean a $4,000 fine and up to one year of jail time. A third offense can jump up to a $10,000 fine and 10 years in state prison, depending on the circumstances of your case. There may be additional consequences as well, such as license suspension, DWI prevention education, or an ignition interlock device on your vehicle.

This does not include the other challenges you'll face like increased insurance premiums, inability to find a job, or difficulty renting an apartment. If you already have two or more DWI convictions, the courts will most likely classify any additional violations as a third-degree felony DWI.
