Understanding DWI & DUI Charges

Both DUI and DWI charges are serious crimes and require exceptional defense. Prosecutors will take into consideration a variety of aspects when charging you with a DUI or DWI, including how much alcohol was in your system at the time of your arrest, if your driving caused any accidents, and how fast or reckless you were driving. These and other factors could leave you facing a misdemeanor, felony, or even an extreme DWI case such as intoxication assault or intoxication manslaughter.

The two main differences between DUI and DWI are:

  • Driving while intoxicated (DWI) – DWIs are only charged to individuals under 21 years of age. Texas is a zero-tolerance state which means that any traceable amount of alcohol or drugs in your system could result in a DWI charge. If convicted, your penalties may include license suspension, a fine, and a mandatory alcohol education program of at least 12 hours.
  • Driving under the influence (DUI) – DUIs can range from a misdemeanor to felony offenses. If convicted, each charge carries a minimum of license suspension, fines, intervention or alcohol education programs, and in some cases, jail time.

Whether you are a minor or an adult, a commercial driver or a civil, you need to have an experienced attorney on your side. Call a trusted McAllen criminal defense lawyer as soon as you are arrested.
