DWI Attorney in Austin, Texas
In the state of Texas, it is illegal to drive or be in control of a motor vehicle while your blood alcohol content (BAC) is 0.08% or higher. If your BAC is found to be at this level while operating a motor vehicle, then you will be arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated (DWI). This is a serious offense as it can carry severe penalties for conviction. For a first conviction of drunk driving, you will face a minimum of three days in jail; this can be increased to six days if there was an open alcohol container in your vehicle at the time of your arrest.
You could also face penalties such as fines, driver's license suspension, and
ignition interlock device (IID) installation. An IID acts like a breathalyzer and will not allow your vehicle to start if it detects alcohol in your system. It is important to know that there are many other penalties that can be added to your sentence depending on a number of factors. If you are
under 21 and you are charged with DWI, then your
penalties could be severe. If you have
multiple DWI convictions, then you could face increased penalties including
felony charges. There are ways to defend, including against
breath and blood tests.
