A large amount of the thousands of DWI cases in Austin, Texas are not prosecuted, state records showed, according to a KXAN report on July 24.
Detective Michael Jennings with the Austin Police Department’s DWI Unit said over 1,300 fatalities happened because of drunk driving on Texas roads in 2013. Jennings claimed that the APD’s DWI unit is among the agencies that are the most vigilant when it comes to solving and prosecuting DWI cases.
Even so, Jennings said he and his department are still frustrated because they see reoccurring arrests that do not result in conviction.
