Fighting The Penalties Of A DWI Conviction

Texas takes DWI charges very seriously. As a result, a DWI conviction often results in a lifetime of legal and collateral consequences. Fight for the outcome you deserve with the help of a skilled criminal defense attorney.

At Ranney Law, our attorney has been representing Georgetown clients in their criminal defense cases for more than 15 years. We know the consequences of a DWI conviction, and we explore all possible options for protecting your best interests, including negotiating for reduced charges and penalties and fighting to win your case. This also involves avoiding jail and probation as much as possible.

What Is At Stake In Your Case

The consequences of a conviction depend on how many prior convictions you have for a DWI. Just consider all of this:

DWI 1st – Up to six months in jail, a $2,000 fine, and an additional $3,000 fine, and losing your driver’s license for six months

DWI 2nd – A minimum of 30 days in jail and up to a year in jail, a $4,000 fine, and an additional $4,000 to $6,000 fine, and loss of your driver’s license for two years.

DWI 3rd or More – Now this is a third-degree felony, which means from two to ten years in prison, a $10,000 fine, and chances are your license situation is a mess. We can help

What You Need To Know About DWIs

Many of our clients have questions about their case, and we are here to answer their questions, including ones such as:

Are there defenses to DWI charges?

There are several strategies that are capable of beating DWI charges if they pertain to your case. Some common defenses include proving police error, roadside test mistakes, lack of probable cause, and your BAC was higher when you were tested than when you were arrested.

Can I get convicted without driving my vehicle?

It is possible to face DWI charges without actually driving your car. If you were sitting or sleeping in your car while intoxicated and you had the means to drive your vehicle, you can still receive DWI charges.

Can I get convicted if my BAC is below the legal limit?

Some people believe that “buzzed” driving is still legal. While it is not illegal to drive with a BAC under 0.08 percent, you can still receive DWI charges if officers believe you are too impaired to drive at all. There are cases where someone with a legal BAC still gets convicted of a DWI.
