A first offense DWI is a Class B misdemeanor
which carries a range of punishment up to six months in the county jail and up to a
two thousand dollar fine. If you get a second case
it’s a Class A misdemeanor which carries a fine of up to four thousand dollars
up to one year in the county jail. Once you have two convictions
if you get a third arrest it’s going to be a felony charge it’s a third-degree felony
in Texas that means you could face up to 10 years in prison up
to a ten thousand dollar fine. So you can see each time you get another offense
it becomes more and more serious. The third time around you’re seriously in
a position where you could face prison time for it. If you are charged
