Kerrville Criminal Defense Lawyer

Kerr County, Texas Criminal Attorney

In many respects, a criminal case against a defendant is only as good as the evidence collected, the manner in which it was collected, whether investigators or officers followed proper procedure and whether prosecution witnesses are credible. At The Law Office of Patrick O’Fiel, P.C. we work with investigators, forensic experts, lab technicians, economists and other professionals as needed when defending our clients. In criminal cases that don’t require the use of experts, we expose departures from standard operating procedures, conflicting statements on the part of police officers and witnesses, and circumstantial evidence that must be questioned.

Regardless of whether you’ve been arrested for marijuana possession, drunk driving or domestic violence, contact Kerrville, Texas, criminal defense attorney Patrick O’Fiel today before talking to investigators or the district attorney’s office.

DWI Arrests in Texas

A conviction for drunk driving in Texas is a serious legal and financial matter. If convicted, you could lose your license, pay an expensive fine and spend time in jail. Additionally, your auto insurance costs will increase and your boss could fire you if you are sentenced to jail and not allowed time away from work to serve your sentence. While each case is different, the penalties for a DWI conviction or repeat DWI are as follows in Texas:

  • First DWI: Suspension of your license for between 90 and 365 days, a fine of up to $2,000, a jail sentence anywhere between 72 hours and 180 days.
  • Second DWI: A suspended license for anywhere between 180 days and two years, a fine of up to $4,000, a jail sentence of anywhere from 30 days to 365 days.
  • Third DWI: A license suspension for between 180 days and two years, a fine of up to $10,000, two to 10 years in the Texas Department of Criminal Justice.

In addition to these penalties, you may be required to attend an alcohol education program, install an ignition interlock device on your car, perform community service and stay away from bars.

While the penalties for a DWI conviction are serious, there are a number of issues that must be considered in any DWI arrest: was the field sobriety test performed correctly? Was the breath test sensor calibrated correctly? Did the officer have reasonable suspicion to pull you over in the first place?
