Montgomery County DWI Attorney

Fourth Offense DWI Lawyer in Montgomery County, Texas

A fourth DWI offense in Montgomery County, Texas is a felony. While any drunk driving charge is serious, a person who has prior DWI convictions will face increased sentencing as well as additional restrictions and new penalties. In the face of these grave consequences, a defendant will need a Montgomery County DWI lawyer on his/her side. Experience, knowledge and dedication are all three qualities which will greatly enhance the outcome that a defendant will face. Even when a defendant is entirely innocent, when breath or blood tests may have been conducted incorrectly or when an unlawful police stop was made, without a competent defense lawyer the defendant will stand little or no chance of avoiding a conviction.

DWI Penalties for a Fourth Drunk Driving Offense

Texas drunk driving law does not allow for additional penalties in conjunction with a fourth DWI, as opposed to the penalties which may be assessed for a third offense DWI. Both a third and fourth DWI are 3rd degree felony offenses and may be punishable by up to 10 years in state prison, as well as fines of up to $10,000 or more, license suspension of 2 years, community service and more.

Many fourth DWI convictions result in a state prison sentence without the possibility of probation. Additionally, rehabilitative treatment is usually mandatory for a fourth offense DWI conviction. This treatment may include participation in Substance Abuse Felony Probation (SAFP) which is an in-patient incarceration program. After this program is completed, the individual will typically be required to be on probation for up to 10 years. Other penalties may include the mandatory installation of an ignition interlock device or even possibly a prescription drug called “Antiabuse” which causes an individual to become violently ill if he/she consumes alcohol.
