What can you expect if you've been convicted of DWI?

Here is some straight answers from our Houston DWI Lawyer. Your punishment and fines for a first conviction depends upon a few factors that can escalate your punishment and fines. Depending upon your blood or breath alcohol level (BAC), you could be charged with a class A or B misdemeanor.

If your BAC less than .15, you’ll be charged with a class B misdemeanor and face: 

  • the possibility of a fine no more than $2,000 and/or
  • 3 to 180 days in jail and
  • a suspended driver license from 90 to 365 days

Those penalties escalate if your BAC is .15 or more. Now you’ll face a class A  misdemeanor, which incurs:

  • a fine not to exceed $4,000 and
  • up to 1 year in the county jail.

Let’s say you have an open container in your vehicle when you are arrested. If you are convicted, the punishment increases requiring:

  • a minimum jail sentence of 6 days (instead of 3 days).
  • you’ll be assessed an annual tax (called a surcharge) of $1,000-$2,000 by the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) to retain your driver’s license.
