DWI Penalties for Adults and Minors
While DWI is typically reserved for adult drivers over 21 years of age, even a minor might be charged with DWI under certain circumstances. Because this elevated charge for a minor driver might be given at a police officer’s discretion, it might also be difficult to fight on your own.
If you are a minor or the parent of a minor charged with DWI, our team may help you fight back against this elevated charge and the penalties a conviction might invoke. According to the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS), a minor or adult charged with DWI may face the following penalties:
- First offense: Up to 6 months of incarceration
- Second offense: Up to 1 year of incarceration
- Third offense: Up to 10 years of imprisonment
- Intoxication assault: Up to 10 years of imprisonment
- Intoxication manslaughter: Up to 20 years of imprisonment
Each of these penalties has accompanying fines and may result in the loss of your driving privileges. If you want help minimizing the penalties of DWI, our team might be able to help you negotiate lowered charges and plea bargains. We might also help you avoid the added burden of enhanced penalties.

Avoid These DWI Penalty Enhancements
Certain circumstances of your arrest might dictate an elevation of the charges you face. When that happens, your future might be in even greater jeopardy. Our team may help you fight back against the harsher penalties of enhanced charges, including:
- Class B to Class A misdemeanor for a BAC (blood alcohol concentration) of 0.15 or higher
- Class B to Class A misdemeanor with incarceration if an open container is found in your vehicle
- Misdemeanor to a felony for an accident that resulted in injuries
If convicted of a DWI-involved accident, you will never be able to have your criminal record sealed. Because credit, employment, housing applications, and many other endeavors might require a background check, avoiding this permanent blemish on your criminal record is important. By hiring a criminal defense lawyer to help you avoid conviction, you may also circumvent this permanent mark on your criminal record, which may show up on future background checks.

Any DWI Charges You Face Have a Time Limit
When you are arrested and charged with DWI, the toll it takes on your life can seem everlasting. In fact, the state has a limited amount of time to act. When our team represents you, we work hard to ensure the statute of limitations is adhered to in your case.
Texas Code of Criminal Procedure §12 generally requires an indictment within two years for a misdemeanor. Felony charges have a separate three-year time limit that must also be met. If the state fails to meet its obligation to act within the allotted time, we might be able to use its failure to comply with the timeline in your favor.
You are entitled to timeliness. If you do not receive it, we may have additional leverage in your defense.
