Driving while impaired (DWI) is one of the more common criminal offenses that happens in Texas. People enjoy drinking and may not realize they are dangerously under the influence and no longer functioning at full capacity when they get behind the wheel.
Imagine that you have been convicted of a crime like shoplifting. You went to court and pled your case but a jury still found you guilty. In addition to the fees and fines you had to pay, the court also handed you a year of probation. In other words, you have to meet certain conditions such as performing community service, not leaving the county and, of course, staying out of legal trouble. But what happens if you cannot meet these terms and end up violating your probation?
