Felony DWI in Houston, Texas
Houston DWI Defense Attorney
Any DWI charge can be a frightening matter. Repeat or aggravated
DWI offenses can be particularly grave in nature, oftentimes resulting in severe penalties.
If you are charged with a felony DWI, then you can be confronted with
years in prison, hefty fines, and then life after as convicted felon.
Do not face this time alone. Serious charges require a serious defense.
You need to retain the best DWI lawyer that you can find. With Mark Morasch,
Attorney at Law, you can know that your defense is in capable hands. Contact
us today to find out how a
former prosecutor can defend you.
Potential Penalties for a Felony DWI
If you have found yourself charged with a third DWI offense or more, you
will be charged with a third degree felony. This can entail 2 to 10 years
in prison, plus up to $10,000 in fines. Your driver's license would
also be suspended for 1 to 2 years. Not only is your freedom threatened,
but after serving a sentence, you would face continued restrictions. Life
branded as a convicted felon means that any banker, landlord, and employer
can see this conviction on a background check. A tainted personal record
can get between you and any job, house, or loan. As if finding a job were
not already hard enough, without a driver's license, keeping or finding
a job can be further hampered. These are heavy penalties that you cannot
afford to live with. Do not let some mistake from a long time ago haunt
you still. The right legal representation may be able to ensure that you
do not receive an underserved DWI conviction.
Even if you have never been convicted of a DWI before, you could still
be charged with a felony DWI. For example, if you are charged with a
DWI with a child passenger (one younger than 15 years old), then that is a state jail felony. This
could mean a minimum 180 days in jail, plus up to $10,000 in fines. Again,
this would mean a future as a convicted felon. There is the chance that
there could be 5 years' probation and a
driver's license suspension instead, but this would still be a serious consequence. It is in your
best interest's to consult a DWI lawyer as soon as possible.
