We Can Help With ALR Hearings!

If you were arrested for DWI in Texas, you have 15 days from the date of your arrest to request an administrative license revocation (ALR) hearing. An ALR hearing is a separate matter from your criminal DWI case. Failing to request this hearing will result in an automatic suspension of your driver’s license, but Smith & Vinson Law Firm can help you avoid this outcome!

What Are the Penalties for DWI in Texas?

The potential penalties for a DWI conviction in Texas depend on how many previous DWI convictions someone has as well as the severity of the most recent conviction.

If you are convicted of DWI for the first time, you can face the following penalties:

  • Up to 180 days in jail
  • Up to $2,000 in fines
  • Loss of driver’s license for one year

A second DWI offense can result in a doubling of these penalties, plus a requirement to install an ignition interlock device on your vehicle.

A third or subsequent DWI offense is much more serious. These convictions can result in sentences of up to 10 years in prison, up to $10,000 in fines, a two-year driver’s license suspension, installation of an ignition interlock device, and other penalties a judge may deem appropriate.

Can I Refuse to Take a Field Sobriety Test?

Field sobriety tests are unscientific methods police officers use to assess whether or not someone may be intoxicated. These tests may involve following a pen or flashlight with your eyes, walking a specified number of paces heel-to-toe and returning, standing on one leg, and reciting the alphabet backward.

You have a legal right to refuse to take these kinds of field sobriety tests.

You also have the right to refuse a breathalyzer or blood test to determine your blood alcohol content, but this can result in a license suspension.

Be Polite, but Brief

You are not required to answer any questions a police officer asks you if they are not biographical in nature. You must present a police officer with valid identification, but you don’t have to answer any questions about drinking, what you were doing an hour ago, where you are going, or other such questions.

These questions are often cleverly formulated so that any answer you give can be interpreted as an admission of guilt or otherwise be used to generate probable cause for your arrest. Remember that you have the Constitutional right to remain silent when under investigation, even if you are only being detained.
