DWI 2nd Offense: Misdemeanor Repetition

What You Should Know About Your 2nd DWI Arrest

Many repeat criminal offenses are charged as felonies, depending on the circumstances, but usually, a second offense DWI is a misdemeanor. If you've been charged with a second offense, you will probably face a worse punishment than you did on the first. This might mean jail as part of your probation, mandatory community service, up to $4,000 in fines, and an ignition interlock device. And you'll also face the possibility of driver's license suspension for at least six months.

Misdemeanor Repetition in Texas

While DWI 2nd is generally charged as a Class A misdemeanor, it means that one more repeat offense will be felony DWI. It's important to do all you can to protect yourself after you've been charged with a repeat offense. Avoiding conviction at this stage is crucial, for your livelihood, reputation, and your freedom. That’s why you need experienced, aggressive, and renowned representation.

Prosecutors won't be as interested in offering you a great plea deal if the evidence is stacked against you, given strict Texas policy against drinking and driving. That's why it's important to go after the best possible result: an acquittal or dismissal. And finding the right defense lawyer is your best chance.
