If this is your first time being charged with a DWI and no one was harmed as a result of your actions, you are probably facing a misdemeanor. Depending on your BAC (blood alcohol content) at the time of the incident, you could be facing a fine of up to $4,000 and up to one year in jail. You might also be required to install an ignition interlock device in your car.
Just because it is your first offense does not mean that you should take these charges lightly. A DUI/DWI can remain on your criminal record and impact your ability to get a job or maintain your driving privileges.

The penalties you face for a second or third DWI offense only get worse. Though a second-offense DWI is still generally classified as a misdemeanor – barring other circumstances like open alcohol containers and serious bodily injury – you are more susceptible to higher fines and lengthier jail sentences.
Third-time offenders are charged with felony DWI and can be fined up to $10,000, be jailed for up to 10 years, and may have their license suspended for up to two years. These penalties can seriously hinder your ability to hold a job, rent a home, and maintain the life you once enjoyed. It is vital that you retain a San Antonio DWI attorney who can fight to protect your future.
