Penalties for Multiple DWI Convictions in Texas

Most of the time, a first DWI offense is classified as a Class B misdemeanor. This carries penalties of up to $2,000 in fines, driver license suspension ranging from 90-365 days, and 3-180 days in jail. However, multiple DWI charges are often classified as felony offenses, which carry much higher penalties.

Second Offense DWI

This is considered a Class A misdemeanor and carries the following penalties:

  • Fines of up to $4,000
  • Jail for 30 days to 1 year
  • Driver license suspension for 180 days up to 2 years

DWI 3rd Offense (Third-Degree Felony)

The most common type of felony DWI in Texas is a DWI 3rd Offense. If you have two prior DWI convictions, a third offense will be charged as a felony under state law. In the past, a third DWI would be charged as a Class B Misdemeanor and treated as a first offense if at least 10 years had passed since the date of the last DWI, but this is no longer the case. Today, any prior DWIs can be used to enhance a new charge.

  • Fines of up to $10,000
  • Imprisonment for 2-10 years
  • Driver license suspension for 180 days up to 2 years

The penalties for multiple DWI convictions are harsh. If you are facing a second, third, or subsequent DWI charge, it is important to seek knowledgeable legal representation right away.

  • Top Notch Lawyers

    “I want to start off by saying Smith and Vinson Law Firm is top notch lawyers. I had a case that the DA and prosecutor was very stern about their decision and not letting up on my charges. My lawyer Matt Watkins treated my case as if he was on trial himself. He went in and fought until we won the battle. Matt Watkins spent countless hours working and reviewing my case and ensuring that my case was dismissed. I was highly satisfied on how Matt showed a passion for my case and handled it aggressively and professionally. I just want to thank this law firm one last time for handling business when it came down to crunch time. I want to also recognize Jarrod Smith for overseeing my case and giving me words of encouragement and showing 130% competence and confidence, while doing so. I will recommend this law firm to anyone that is in need of the legal issues that this firm specialize in. THANKS ONCE AGAIN!!!!!!!!”
