Commercial DWIs in Texas
In Texas, you can get arrested and charged with DWI if you have been operating a commercial vehicle while driving drunk. A first-time offense is a class B misdemeanor and is punishable in the following ways:
- Up to 180 days in jail
- A maximum fine of up to $2,000
- CDL suspension up to one year
- CDL suspension up to three years (transporting hazardous materials)
- Mandatory alcohol addiction treatment
- Community services
The legal limit for a normal DWI is 0.08% blood alcohol concentration (BAC). However, if you are a commercial driver, you can be charged for a DWI with a BAC of just 0.04% or above. The BAC standard set by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) applies in all 50 states, including Texas.
We Defend Clients Against DWI Charges
When you are charged with a DWI, you may feel that there is no hope for your case. However, you may have options.
Our Plano commercial DWI lawyers can explore different strategies for defending you in court. These may include:
Challenging the Charges Against You
We can investigate the charges to see if there was a lack of reasonable suspicion, lack of probable cause for arrest, or lack of evidence to convict you. We can review all the facts of the case and attempt to establish your innocence and free you from all charges.
If you decide to plead “guilty” or “no contest” to the charges against you, we may be able to work with the prosecution to arrange a plea bargain. The prosecution may be willing to drop the charges or reduce your sentence to reckless driving or public intoxication.
Request a Dismissal of All Charges
If you are arrested for a DWI, it is important that law enforcement handle your arrest properly. If you were improperly arrested, BAC tested, or handled unfairly, then we may be able to request to have your charges dismissed.
You do not need to face the courts alone. The Law Offices of Randall B. Isenberg offers a free case assessment with our Plano DWI team. Call us at (214) 696-9253 to get started.
