2nd DWI Offense in Texas

Being arrested for a first-time DWI can be a very frightening experience. For many people, their first interaction with law enforcement comes when they are placed under arrest for a suspected DWI. The stigma of any DWI conviction is one that is not easily lived down. If you have been arrested for a 2nd DWI offense, you could face exceedingly enhanced penalties and additional legal problems.

A 2nd DWI offense in Collin County will be charged as a Class A misdemeanor. Penalties for a 2nd DWI offense can include:

  • Fines up to $4,000
  • Between 72 hours and 12 months in jail
  • 80-200 hours of community service
  • The mandatory installation of a deep lung air device (also known as an ignition interlock device)
  • The suspension of your driving privileges for between 6 months and 2 years
  • Other potential penalties

In many cases, there will be other potential penalties which could be ordered by the court. With aggressive representation from an experienced DWI attorney in Collin County, your 2nd DWI offense does not have to result in a conviction.
