San Antonio DWI Attorney
Being arrested for
DWI and already having a prior DWI conviction can bring about significantly
greater penalties than a first offense. If convicted of DWI 2nd, you could
- Jail sentence of up to 1 year
- Fine of up to $4,000
- Long-term probation
- Many hours of community service
- Court ordered driving classes and programs for substance abuse
- Suspension of your driver's license for up to 1 year
- Ignition interlock device for your vehicle, installed at your expense
- Electronic leg monitor
- Required Antabuse medication to prevent drinking
- Extremely negative impact on your legal record, which can make it difficult
to find and maintain employment, limit your housing options and any other
opportunities where your criminal record must be divulged or looked up
by conducting a background check.
If you or someone you care about has recently been arrested for a 2nd DWI,
and already has a previous DWI conviction, your first step should be to
speak with a competent San Antonio criminal defense attorney about the
situation. It is also crucial that you do not discuss your legal matter
with anyone but your lawyer, as anything you say could potentially harm
the integrity of your case's defense.
