Center Point DWI Attorney
DWI Defense in Center Point, Texas
Some of the most harshly punished crimes you can commit in Texas are crimes that involve intoxicated driving. Driving while intoxicated (DWI) and driving under the influence (
under 21 DUI), are serious
criminal offenses that can result in a
DWI misdemeanor or a
DWI felony, depending upon the severity of the case. The penalties you could face if convicted of DWI range from a
driver's license suspension and community service, to heavy fines, mandatory rehabilitation and jail or prison time, especially if you are involved in a
DWI accident. If you have been arrested or charged for drunk driving, contact a
DWI attorney as soon as possible to ensure you have effective legal representation fighting on your behalf.
Being pulled over by a law enforcement officer can be a nerve-wracking experience. When an officer suspects that you may be intoxicated, they can ask you to submit to tests such as field sobriety tests,
Breathalyzer tests, and even a
blood test if administered by authorized individuals. These tests are not always accurate however, especially if the officer does not follow procedure, or if the results are affected by a medical condition, or even your nervousness in the case of the sobriety tests. An experienced attorney can help you fight these charges, and give you a chance to avoid a conviction.
