When it comes to DWI enforcement, it seems that the Houston Police Department has kept busy. According to the Houston Chronicle over 30 people were arrested for suspicion of felony drunk driving by the Houston Police Department in March of 2018. That’s not counting those arrested by the Harris County Sheriff’s Office and other local agencies. If they’re convicted of their offense, they’ll face anywhere from 2 years to life in prison. Yes, it’s possible for habitual DWI offenders to catch a life sentence in Texas. In most cases defendants aren’t given such harsh sentences.
Anytime a person is arrested for DWI or another criminal offense in Houston, the best option is to secure legal representation as soon as possible.
