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.

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.
