DUI/DWI Archives

District clerk arrested for DWI

A district clerk in Texas was recently taken into custody for driving while intoxicated. The woman also reportedly had an alcoholic beverage container open in her car. The woman was arrested on DWI charges on a Sunday.

Penalties for DWI in Texas include time behind bars, fines

Being arrested for drinking and driving can understandably be intimidating in Texas. After all, a wide range of penalties are possible for a DWI conviction in Texas. Fortunately, those accused of driving under the influence are always considered innocent until and unless prosecutors can prove their guilt beyond a reasonable doubt in court.

Woman in Texas faces DWI charges

A 21-year-old woman in Austin is facing serious charges after a man on a moped was killed in the early morning of Feb. 9. Texas police responded to the fatal accident and were given to believe the driver may have been intoxicated at the time of the crash. In addition to DWI charges, she also faces charges of manslaughter and failure to render aid. No court date was reported. 

DUI/DWI charges may sometimes come in bunches

In Texas and elsewhere, it is not unusual to see the same suspect arrested on two or more separate incidents of alleged drunk driving within days or even hours of each other. Despite suggestive appearances of guilt, however, the authorities must still prove the elements of DUI/DWI on each separate charge beyond a reasonable doubt. That is not always easy for the prosecution, especially when the accused is represented by an experienced and seasoned criminal defense attorney who is proficient in handling such cases.

Man suspected of DUI following Texas crash

Car accidents often happen faster than those involved can even consider reacting. In the aftermath of a crash, a person involved could panic and respond in an unexpected way. Unfortunately, a man in Texas is suspected of DUI following a crash that appears to have only caused minor injuries.

Police officer faces DUI/DWI charge following head-on crash

A police officer in Texas currently faces a criminal charge related to driving while under the influence. His drunk driving charge came after police said he collided with another vehicle head-on. Anyone facing a DUI/DWI charge in Texas has the right to fight these charges aggressively in the criminal court system.

Driver sentenced in DWI crash

A man who was accused of DWI with regard to an accident that occurred over two years ago will now serve 28 years in prison. A jury handed down the sentence after four days of testimony. The man allegedly ran a red light in North Austin and slammed into a college student from the University of Texas. She was killed instantly. Charges related to DWI are serious under any circumstances, but more so when they are related to a fatal accident. 

Police footage of DUI/DWI now public information

A well-known country music star arrested for drunk driving has lost his appeal to keep the police footage from being made public. The ruling for the request opens the door for the Texas Department of Public Safety. They are set to release the footage on Friday. In Texas, police recordings of the DUI/DWI arrest showed the singer nude and disoriented.
