Repeat DWI Offenses

Advocacy from a San Antonio Criminal Lawyer

If you are facing a repeat Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) charge, you may be facing tougher punishments than a first-time offender. These offenses become gradually more serious.

The normal progression is as follows:

  • First time DWI offenses are charged as a Class B misdemeanor,
  • Second offenses are usually filed as more serious Class A misdemeanors, and
  • Third and subsequent offenses are treated as felonies.

A third DWI can carry a minimum of two years in prison, something no one wants to endure, and something my firm may be able to help you avoid with an airtight defense.

The Prosecution Has the Burden of Proof

If you had anything to drink that day or night, you are automatically guilty, right? Not necessarily. The law allows adults to drink responsibly. If you had a casual drink (e.g. a glass of wine with friends at a restaurant), you are still allowed to drive.

Violation of the law only occurs when your driving has been impaired by the consumption of excessive alcohol. The State must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you lost use of your "mental or physical faculties," or had a BAC in excess of 0.08%.
