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
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
