Multiple DWIs

Receiving a driving while intoxicated (DWI) citation in Texas can have serious consequences in any circumstance. However, under Texas law, a second or subsequent DWI conviction is prosecuted much more aggressively than an initial DWI. Indeed, multiple DWIs can lead to substantial criminal penalties, including lengthy prison sentences and large fines.

The following is a brief explanation of the criminal penalties associated with multiple DWIs in Texas:

Second DWI Conviction:

  • Up to $4,000 in fines
  • Up to one year in jail
  • Two years’ driver’s license suspension

Third DWI Conviction:

  • Up to $10,000 in fines
  • Up to 10 years in state prison
  • Two years’ driver’s license suspension

Facing conviction for multiple DWI offenses in Texas can be a serious situation. That’s why it is essential that those suspected of committing a repeat DWI pursue the services of a qualified legal representative to defend their rights and interests under the law.
