Prior DWI Conviction?

How Long Can The State Use A Prior DWI Conviction? Texas previously allowed convictions to be used within 10 years but the law has changed and now these convictions can basically be used forever. If you have a deferred adjudication probation on a DWI/DUI from other States that might not be usable. If you have a final conviction from another State it is usable in Texas, the same as it would be if you got the conviction here is Texas. Watch the video to learn more…
