DWI Charges Texas
Most of us are aware that driving while intoxicated is a serious offense that can result in harsh penalties. If you are arrested for DWI, you are at risk of heavy fines, imprisonment, and suspension or revocation of your driver’s license. Even if (or when) you are permitted to drive after being convicted of a DWI offense, you may be required to have an ignition interlock device installed in any vehicle that you own or operate.
How Is DWI Defined in Texas?
The term DWI is used to designate a driver whose blood alcohol content (BAC) is 0.08% or higher. You can also be charged with DWI by refusing to submit to a chemical test of your breath or blood and without any scientific reading being obtained by law enforcement.
How Is DWI Proven in Texas?
There are a number of ways that law enforcement uses to try to verify that you are intoxicated, including field sobriety tests and breathalyzer, blood, or urine tests. According to Texas Law, a police officer, as someone who is quite familiar with the physical and mental signs of intoxication, can also give his or her opinion as to whether you appear to be intoxicated. Signs such as a strong smell of alcohol on the breath, flushed skin, bloodshot, watery eyes, poor coordination, poor balance, and slurred speech may be used as evidence of presumptive drunkenness.
Our team of distinguished legal professionals may be able to create a defense case for you based on:
Lack of probable cause
Flawed lab results or defective equipment
Alternative reasons for appearing “intoxicated.”
Errors/mistakes that do not necessarily indicate intoxication
The inaccuracy of field sobriety tests
Miranda rights violations
Evidence of mental alertness
