How does this make you feel?

Posted on by Defensive Driving Team | in My Kind of Driving

I read an article about a Galveston,TX couple that were killed by a drunk driver as they walked their dog on April 27, 2012.  Now on the same page I happened to glance to my right and read an advertisment for DWI lawyers.  I dare you to read this and tell me how does this make you feel?

DWI With Child on Board

Galveston, Texas, DWI Defense Attorneys
Drunk Driving With Child in Vehicle in Texas

Under Texas law, it is a serious criminal offense to drive while intoxicated when transporting a passenger who is younger than 15 years old. If you had a child in the car when you were pulled over on suspicion of drunk driving, you will need a sharp defense to avoid the felony conviction and harsh prison term.******* has defended clients in the toughest DWI cases, including drunk driving with a child on board. We take cases in Galveston County, Houston and Harris County, and surrounding jurisdictions.

Driving While Intoxicated With Child Passenger

The offense of DWI with a child on board is a state felony punishable by a minimum sentence of 180 daysand up to two years in state prison and/or fines up to $10,000. The age of the child, prior DWI/DUI convictions, level of intoxication and other factors are weighed in determining the punishment.

There is no defense to the passenger aspect of the charge; either a child was or wasn’t in the car. Our attorneys are skilled at attacking the underlying drunk driving charge. We examine every facet of the evidence and the arrest, including probable cause for the traffic stop, field sobriety tests and Breathalyzer results. Our goal is dismissal of charges or at least reduced charges, but we are prepared to go to trial to preserve your freedom.

If you have no prior felony convictions, you may be eligible for probation for this serious offense to avoid jail and the other harsh consequences. We explore all your defenses and explain all your options.
