Teacher arrested for DWI in Texas

A high school chemistry instructor in Texas was recently taken into custody for drinking and driving. The arrest occurred during the early morning hours on a Friday. The male teacher facing a DWI charge is 31 years old.

Police said they pulled over the teacher at about midnight for violating a traffic law along a loop. At that time, the man reportedly displayed signs of being intoxicated. He also allegedly failed a sobriety test, and he reportedly chose not to provide police with a sample of his blood.

The man was arrested on a charge of driving while intoxicated. If convicted of the Class B misdemeanor, he will spend as many as 180 days behind bars and will also have to pay a fine of $2,000. The teacher, who is also a member of a local community college board, posted a bond of $1,500 following his arrest.

Facing a DWI charge can understandably be frightening and even embarrassing for someone who has a public job role. However, just because the individual is accused of drinking and driving does not mean that he or she is automatically guilty. Rather, his or her guilt must be proved beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.

The person accused of DWI has the right to vigorously fight such a charge with the goal of avoiding conviction. Alternatively, he or she may choose to seek to negotiate a plea deal with the prosecution, which may lead to a lighter sentence than what would be imposed following a guilty verdict at trial. An attorney can help a client to choose the best course of action given the circumstances surrounding his or her arrest in Texas.
