Why hire an Austin DWI Defense Attorney?
Drinking and driving in the state of Texas is illegal, and you could face serious penalties for conviction of this crime. If you are responsible for causing an accident due to alcohol use, then you could face much more serious penalties than for an accident that does not involve alcohol. Causing an accident in which there is serious bodily injury while you are under the influence of alcohol can result in severe penalties, such as jail time of up to 10 years and fines of up to $10,000 in third-degree felony cases. When convicted of a felony, you will incur a criminal record that will follow you for the rest of your life and possibly prevent you from obtaining employment, housing, and other benefits that require a background check.
If you are convicted of a DWI accident in which death occurred as a proximate cause of the intoxication, then you could face penalties of up to $10,000 and a prison sentence of up to 20 years. It is important to know that intoxicated manslaughter is a second-degree felony in Texas.
