Severe Penalties For A Repeat DWI
The state of Texas aggressively prosecutes those who are convicted to a second or more DWI offense. While the penalties for the first DWI may have been overwhelming, each repeat offense results in much more severe consequences.
If you are facing the possibility of a repeat DWI conviction, it is critical that you have zealous criminal defense on your side fighting to protect you from the full brunt of prosecution.
Fighting The Severe Consequences You Could Face For A Repeat DWI
Sentencing for repeat DWI offenses includes:
- Even your second DWI could result in up to a year of jail time.
- Your third DWI can get you anywhere from two to 10 years in jail.
- Each DWI after your second is considered a felony charge.
- With a repeat DWI, you could lose your license for up to two years.
- Each additional DWI conviction results in thousands of more dollars in fines and surcharges.
- After your second DWI, you will be required to pay to have an interlock device installed on your vehicle.
