As part of the new law, if you’re charged with DWI and had a BAC under .15, the judge may order you to deferred adjudication.
This means you will be placed on probation.
You’ll be required to have an Ignition Interlock Device installed on your vehicle.
Once you complete the terms of the probation the conviction will not show up on your record.
If you are charged with a second offense, the first can be referred to for enhanced sentencing purposes.
If a person was arrested for driving while intoxicated with a child passenger, they must have an Ignition Interlock Device installed on their vehicle as a requirement of posting bond.
