Let Us Protect Your Rights Today - Call (713) 227-2900

Most driving while intoxicated (DWI) charges in Texas are considered misdemeanors and require a minimum fine, license revocation and, in some cases, and a short jail stay. But a DWI can turn into a felony offense for a number of reasons. If you are charged with a felony, your penalties will be much more severe - you could be facing prolonged punishments and lengthy revocation of your driver's license. After an arrest, it is important that, regardless of whether it is a misdemeanor or a felony charge, you contact an attorney right away. DWI charges can turn into felony offenses under the following conditions:

Third-Time Offenders
Those who have been arrested twice for drunk driving prior to their third DWI arrest will be charged with a felony DWI.

Driving While Intoxicated with a Passenger of 15 Years or Less
Having a minor in the car with you who is 15 years of younger, even if this is your first DWI charge, will result in a felony charge.

Intoxication Assault
If bodily injury is caused to a person while you were driving under the influence, then you will be charged with the felony of intoxication assault.

Manslaughter
If you were involved in an accident that resulted in the death of another individual because you were operating under the influence, you will be charged with a felony DWI and manslaughter charges.
