In the wake of an accident, there will probably be much distress. Your focus is likely to be on yourself and any other passengers in the vehicle with you. Depending on the extent of your injuries, you may even administer medical treatment to yourself and your loved ones. At the place of accident, it’s important to contact emergency services to ensure that you receive the proper medical treatment, and at the scene of an accident, law enforcement will begin an investigation. When the police arrive at the location, it is important that you keep a level head and calm composure. They will have your blood alcohol content tested if they suspect that you might have been drinking.

DWI vs. DUI

A lot of people in Denton are accused of a DWI charge, yet they still refer to it as a DUI. Even though these two offenses are very much similar to each other and have similar punishments, but they are still different, and must not be taken as the same. In Denton, if someone is accused of driving while intoxicated with a blood-alcohol level (BAC) of over .08, then he or she will be charged with a DWI. However, if it is the first that the person has been involved in the offense and is a minor, then it is most likely that he or she will be charged with DUI, and not DWI. People who are above the age of twenty-one often get charged with DWI, which has more severe penalties.

Though these two terms are often used interchangeably, it is important to know the difference since they both lead to different penalties.

Helping Denton Clients Get The DWI Defense They Deserve

Penalties For Drinking And Driving In Denton

Adults that are charged with a DWI face severe punishment. They can face up to 2 years of license suspension, jail time up to 180 days, a fine up to $2000, and possibly an ignition interlock device. The punishments get more severe for repeat offenders or those with a child in the car.

In Denton, there is a zero-tolerance policy for minors. So, if a minor has consumed alcohol while driving then he or she will be charged with DWI. For a first offense, a minor can face a license suspension of up to 1 year, a $500 fine, 90 days of community service and they will also be required to attend an Alcohol Education Program.

Consequences Of A Conviction

If the accident in which you were involved caused harm or injury to another person, then you must already be feeling guilty because of it. Moreover, having a DWI charge against you or any other type of charges such as drug possession or a felony will most likely add up to the stress and you will have to deal with serious consequences. People who are convicted of a DWI have to face serious punishments that include the following:

  • Retaining employment
  • License Suspension
  • Time in Jail
  • Fines
  • Legal Fees
  • Loss of Employment
  • Mark on their record

In addition to criminal consequences, if someone is charged with a DWI and others were involved in the accident, then they may also have to face civil claims for personal injuries that occurred during the accident.
