There are several levels of DWI offenses in Texas.   A conviction will stay on your criminal record forever.  On a first DWI conviction, jail time is 72 hours, unless an open container of alcohol is found, in which case it is 6 days in jail.  The fine is $2,000.  A surcharge is placed on your driver's license, which is separate from the fine. For a first offense, the surcharge is $1,000 per year for three years.  If your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level was at .15% or above, your surcharge will be $2,000 per year for three years.   You may receive up to a 1-year driver's license suspension.  There are various options in the defense of your DWI charge, and with the help of a DWI defense attorney, it is possible that the driver's license suspension may be waived if a DWI Education class is attended.   The Adrogué Law Firm, PLLC, can provide a high-quality DWI defense in all types of DWI charges, including the following:
