Avoiding The Harsh Consequences Of Multiple DWI Convictions
The consequences of a first-time DWI are harsh, but are even worse for a second, third or subsequent offense. Consider the following penalties for multiple DWI offense charges in Texas:
|Fines||Jail/Prison Time||License Suspension|
|Second offense||Up to $4,000||One month to one year||Up to two years|
|Third offense||Up to $10,000||Two years to 10 years||Up to two years|
In addition to these penalties, the convicted must also pay thousands of dollars in surcharge. Many must have ignition interlock devices installed in their vehicles (at their own expense). Their car insurance rates skyrocket.
Remember, you do not have to face these charges lying down. By building a strong, proactive defense, you can give yourself the best possible chance of keeping your driver’s license, staying out of jail and putting this matter behind you.
