Penalties for a First Time DWI Offense
DWI convictions are particularly harsh because the penalties are always multifaceted.
Even for drivers with no prior offenses to their name can find themselves
grappling with numerous and lasting consequences, underscoring the importance
of a skilled Houston DWI defense lawyer.
Penalties for a first-time DWI conviction can include:
- A maximum jail sentence of 180 days
- Fines up to $2,000 ($10,000 if minor is present)
- A $1,000 fine for the Texas surcharge program
- A maximum license suspension up to 180 days
Many of these penalties can be argued down and minimized and, in many cases,
the charges themselves can be defeated at both your trial and your DMV
administrative hearing. Time, however, is of the essence. If you have
been charged, we invite you to contact our firm now. We are ready to take
swift action against both your administrative and criminal penalties and
ensure that you can put this troubling time behind you as soon as possible.
