Important Things to Know If Accused of DWI

If you’ve been accused of a drunk driving related criminal offense in Texas there are quite a few things to consider if you’re convicted in the court of law.

Conviction Consequences

If you’re facing prosecution for drunk driving without the help of an experienced Houston DWI attorney the consequences are severe in all forms of the imagination.

Listed below are some of the consequences one can expect if found guilty of operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or another drug/chemical substance.

  • Your driving privileges may be cancelled by way of Administrative License Revocation: The process by which your Texas Drivers License is suspended simply because you’ve been accused of impaired driving.
  • You may be forced to face jail time. Its not like you’ll have a choice as to whether or not you’ll have to cooperate with your own incarceration and imprisonment.
  • Fines: Expensive fees pilfered from the people by the overbearing power of the state. True, I may have put a bit much on that. It happens.
  • Criminal Records: The details of your arrest for driving while intoxicated will be unshakeable unless you can get the record expunged.

Houston – A High Crime Area

Houston is one of the high crime centers of the State of Texas causing the Houston Police Department to always have their hands full. Everyday in Houston crimes are committed, people are hurt, and the doors at the jail house revolve.

If you’re ever in the Houston area, or live here, its important to obey the law, and steer clear of the criminal element or you may find yourself in jail.

3 Reasons You Need a Criminal Lawyer

There are many times that people are arrested for crimes they’ve committed, and other times that people are arrested for crimes they had nothing to do with. Regardless of the situation, it makes sense to retain a criminal lawyer to represent you in court.

There are a number of reasons to hire an attorney for your defense with the main 3 being listed below.

  1. Having a well practiced lawyer on your side will give you access to expert legal advice, and to someone who can devise a defense strategy.
  2. Having a smart lawyer on your side will almost always mean getting a lower sentence in the event that you plead guilty, or are found guilty during your encounter with the criminal justice system in Texas.
  3. Hired an experienced attorney will keep you out of situations in which, the very State that accused you of a crime, offers to defend you from their own prosecutors. So much for Gideon’s Promise.

If you’re ever in trouble with the law, no matter how minor you think the charge is, and no matter if you caught “red handed” guilty, talk with a criminal justice expert to lessen the consequences.
