A Local DUI Attorney Who Will Fight for Your Family

If a minor is convicted of DUI, he faces an number of escalating penalties depending upon whether it’s a first, second or third offense. And the punishment become stiffer with every defense, making it more critical to mount the most aggressive defense for the first offense DUI with a Houston DUI Attorney from Trichter & LeGrand.

DUI First Offense

The minor faces a class C misdemeanor which may result in the following punishments:

  • A fine up to $500
  • 20 to 40 hours of community service
  • He or she must attend an alcohol awareness program, a drug education program or a drug and alcohol driving awareness program. If he does not complete the program, the court will order the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) to suspend or deny the issuance of the minor’s driver’s license for up to 6 months.
  • 60 days driver’s license suspension. The minor would not be eligible for an occupational license for the first 30 days
  • There is no incarceration for this type of misdemeanor if he or she is convicted.

  • 40 to 60 hours of mandatory community service
  • 120 days driver’s license suspension. The minor would not be eligible for an occupational license for the first 90 days.

DUI Third Offense

The consequences become more severe with a third offense:

  • The minor is not eligible for deferred adjudication.
  • Suspended driver’s license for 180 days with no opportunity to obtain an occupational license during the entire suspension period.
  • For minors age 17 years or older, the fine increases to $500 to $2,000 and/or he could face up jail confinement up to 180 days.
