Multiple DWI Charges in Texas

Searching for a lawyer for a multiple DWI case in Round Rock?

Facing a first DWI offense in Texas is a serious matter and can result in tough consequences. Multiple DWI offenses; however, are even more harsh and the penalties are greater.

It is imperative to fight against your DWI charges, even the first time, to prevent multiple convictions and a tainted record. In order to be considered a second DWI, the offense must be committed within 10 years of the first offense. This same look back period applies for third and fourth convictions as well.

If you have been arrested for a first, second, third or subsequent DWI offense, contact our legal team at R. Scott Magee, Attorney at Law. We can help you build a DWI defense and fight to avoid conviction.

Consequences of a Multiple DWI in Texas

A first offense DWI can result in between three and 180 days in jail plus a fine and license suspension for up to one year. If you are arrested and charged with another DWI within 10 years of the first, the consequences are greater. The potential penalties for multiple DWI offenses include:

Second DWI Offense in Texas:

  • Jail time between 30 days and one year
  • A fine of up to $4,000
  • A license suspension for between 180 days and two years

Third DWI Offense in Texas:

  • Jail time for two years
  • A fine of up to $10,000
  • A license suspension for between 180 days and two years

The penalties can vary due to the specific factors of your offense and they can increase if there was a minor under age 15 in the car at the time of the offense. Other aggravating factors would be if serious injuries or death resulted from the offense.
