Greenville DWI Attorneys

Serving the Accused in Hunt County & Surrounding Areas

As in other states, driving while intoxicated (DWI) is a serious offense in Texas which can lead to an array of penalties. The legal limit for blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is 0.08 percent for adults, 0.00 percent for those under 21, and 0.04 percent for commercial drivers. Furthermore, you can be arrested for drunk driving with a BAC lower than the legal limit if law enforcement observes that your physical and mental faculties have been impaired by alcohol or drugs.

Being arrested for DWI can be an intimidating and frightening experience, especially if it’s a first offense. You may think nothing can be done about the forthcoming process; but that is not true. Many aspects of your arrest can be investigated to determine if your legal rights were violated and if any legal, technical, or scientific errors were made during or following your arrest. In order to have this investigation conducted, you will need an experienced Greenville DWI lawyer. You can find one at Willeford, Duff & Council. Our legal team includes a lawyer who is Certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization in Criminal Law, which is the highest level of professionalism possible in any legal field.

Texas DWI Facts & Consequences

Under Texas implied consent laws, if you are pulled over by law enforcement and asked to take a breath test, you must do so. If you refuse, you face a license suspension of 180 days up to 2 years depending on if it is a first offense or subsequent one.

In any DWI conviction, the penalties will depend on the BAC level and your prior DWI convictions, if any.

For a first offense with a BAC measuring 0.08 percent but less than 0.15 percent, you face:

  • Jail time of 72 hours up to 180 days
  • A fine of up to $2,000
  • A license suspension of 90 days to a year

If your BAC measures 0.15 percent or higher, your Class A misdemeanor penalties will be steeper. Any subsequent DWI conviction will also result in higher fines, longer terms of incarceration, and license suspensions of up to two years.
