How A Drunk Driving Conviction Can Affect Your Future

Few people get behind the wheel expecting to be pulled over for drunk driving. Yet DWI charges are one of the most common ways everyday people get entangled in the criminal justice system.

In Texas, charges for driving while intoxicated/driving under the influence (DWI/DUI) can range in severity from misdemeanors to felonies. Depending on your situation, the consequences could include:

  • Loss of your driver's license
  • Significant fines
  • Jail time
  • Probation
  • Ignition interlock device
  • Confiscation of your vehicle

A conviction can also raise your insurance premiums, and it may resurface years down the road on job applications, housing applications or other background checks.
