DWI, intoxication assault and intoxication manslaughter in Texas

When a person is charged with driving while intoxicated in Texas, there are circumstances that can lead to serious issues that go beyond the basic DWI allegations and penalties if there is a conviction. For example, if there is a car accident in which another person is injured or killed, the person who is charged might face intoxication assault or intoxication manslaughter. Understanding the law is an important part of formulating a defense strategy.

Will I need to install an ignition interlock device after a DWI?

When a Texan is arrested for driving while intoxicated, a conviction can carry with it many penalties that can make life difficult. That can include jail time, fines and the loss of driving privileges. Another penalty that can be problematic is the requirement that the driver install an ignition interlock device on his or her vehicle. Knowing when this will be done, how it works and what the rules are is important. Similarly, it is important for a person who is confronted with DWI allegations to lodge a defense to avoid a conviction and keep from facing these onerous penalties and a negative perception in the community.
