DUI/DWI Charges in Texas
Texas law prohibits any driver under the age of 21 from operating a vehicle while impaired by alcohol or any drugs. Should a person under the age of 21 be found operating while under the influence they will face a DUI charge. Anyone over the age of 21 who is operating impaired will face DWI charges.
The penalties for a DWI charge are severe including losing your license for up to one year, a fine and a penalty imposed for up to three years to keep your license. If you are found driving while intoxicated with a child under the age of 15 you could automatically lose your license for 180 days and face up to two years’ jail time. DWI charges should not be taken lightly and it is possible to fight back, even if you did not pass a breath test at the time of your arrest.
