Driving While Intoxicated at Christmas Time

Happy holidays can become unhappy with the swerve of the wheel.  DWI is prosecuted heavily in Collin County and Dallas County Texas.  There are beefed up efforts to make arrests of those who are driving under the influence (DUI) and DWI.  The police officer only has to show that he had probable cause to believe someone was intoxicated after he stopped them for a traffic offense, such as speeding.

However, DWIs are tried more often than any other type of criminal jury trial in North Texas.  The reason for that is a conviction by way of plea bargain is extraordinarily expenses.  Up to a $2,000 fine for a first offense and up to a $10,000 fine for a felony offense.

There is also a huge administrative surcharge for any conviction.  The state has a very high burden of proof at trial.  Beyond a reasonable doubt.  So, these cases are winnable.  If you are arrested, you need an experienced DWI lawyer to advise you and evaluate the evidence.
