DWI and DUI in Texas

DWI stands for driving while intoxicated and DUI means driving under the influence, and in many places the terms are used interchangeably. In Texas, DWI and DUI have different meanings under the law. DUI is used exclusively for persons under the age of 21 who can be charged for driving under the influence of even the slightest amount of alcohol or drugs due to the zero policy in Texas. It’s called DUIA if the accused driver is under 18 and the penalties are not as severe as for drivers over 21, but it’s still possible to have your license suspended for six months even if you weren’t intoxicated. Persons over 21 can be charged with DWI if they have a .08 blood alcohol concentration or are found to be impaired by drugs with penalties up to six months in jail for a first offense. If a child under the age of 15 was in the car, the penalty rises to up to two years in jail. At Co & Co we believe that one mistake shouldn’t destroy a person’s future, so we’ll do everything possible to get your case dismissed or your charges reduced for first offense DWI and DUI.
