3rd DWI Offense

When an individual is arrested for a 3rd DWI offense here in Collin County, he or she will be facing felony charges and penalties. A 3rd DWI offense is a 3rd degree felony. Penalties for this type of offense will include fines not to exceed $10,000, incarceration for between 2-10 years, the mandatory installation of a deep lung air device on your vehicle, 160-600 hours of community service to be completed while on probation and the immediate suspension of your driver's license for between 180 days and 2 years.

As multiple DWI offenses are an indication of a serious problem with alcohol, many courts and juries will also order a repeat offender complete an alcohol rehabilitation program. If the judge should make the determination that you are a habitual offender, you may be required to take the prescription drug Antabuse. This particular drug is intended as an alcohol deterrent as it causes individuals to become violently ill anytime they consume any amount of alcohol.
