Penalties Our Lawyer Can Help You Avoid or Reduce
For a first-time DWI where the driver has a blood-alcohol content (BAC) that is below 0.15 percent, the minimum recommended jail sentence is three days. For intoxicated manslaughter or a DWI that causes the death of another party, the maximum prison sentence is 20 years.
If you have been arrested for your first DWI with a BAC under 0.15%, you can expect to pay up to $2,000 in fines. A third DWI offense will result in a fine up to $10,000.
DWI convictions can result in license suspension for 90 days to two years. You may also have to pay up to $2,000 a year for up to three years to retain your license. These restrictions can affect your employment and ability to pay bills. By working with a DWI defense lawyer like Jason Trumpler, you have a higher chance of keeping your license after a DWI charge.
Underage DUI Comes With Stiff Punishments
The State of Texas has a zero-tolerance stance when it comes to minors who drink and drive. While those 21 and over can have a blood alcohol content (BAC) of up to 0.08% before facing charges, underage drivers who have any detectable amount of alcohol in their system while operating a vehicle can be charged with Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol (DUIA). For offenders under age 17, this can result in a $500 fine, 60-day license suspension, community service, and alcohol education classes. For offenders ages 17 to 20, punishment can include $2,000, up to 180 days in jail, and a one-year license suspension.
As a county close to the University of Texas in Austin, police in Williamson County may be more alert of underage motorists who are potentially driving under the influence. If the underage driver has a BAC above .08 percent, they can also be charged with a DWI.
A DUI/DWI charge can interfere with attending school, working, and having a social life. Contact the Law Offices of Jason Trumpler if you're an underage driver who is dealing with a DWI charge.

Challenging Your Field Sobriety Test
A field sobriety test is one of a few tests police may use to determine if you are too intoxicated to operate a vehicle.
Drivers are often asked to do these tests at night and in a location they're unfamiliar with, making them difficult to perform. The tasks drivers are asked to perform are often difficult for people who are completely sober. Meanwhile, conditions like an inner ear infection can affect balance, making the driver appear drunk when they are not.
While a police officer may present a field sobriety test as an objective measure, Jason Trumpler knows better. Our attorney can hold the officer accountable if they did not administer the test according to protocol. Meanwhile, if a condition other than intoxication influenced your performance on the test, Mr. Trumpler can make this clear to a jury.
Factors That Can Influence Your DUI Charges
The legal limit for BAC for adults in Texas is .08. However, DWI charges and penalties are likely to be more severe if a driver's BAC levels are .15 percent or above.
The Number of Offenses
Drivers in Texas face harsher penalties for their second and third DWIs, making it more critical to work with a qualified DWI attorney to get your charges reduced from a felony to a misdemeanor, or eliminated completely.
Child in the Car
A DWI with a child under age 15 in the car is an automatic felony in Texas. Offenders can face up to two years in jail and a $10,000 fine, among other penalties.
Injuries or Death
If a DWI accident results in the injury or death of another person, the driver charged with the crime will likely face felony charges.
