Felony DWI in Texas

Texas has established four different circumstances that will result in a felony DWI. These include the following offenses:

  • A third or subsequent DWI arrest
  • DWI with a minor under the age of 15 as a passenger in the vehicle
  • Intoxication assault, causing serious bodily injury to another
  • Intoxication manslaughter, when involved in an accident where another person was killed

Penalty for Felony DWI in Texas

A third DWI conviction is punishable by a license suspension of 180 days up to two years, 2 to 10 years in prison, and a fine of up to $10,000.

A DWI with a minor in the car is charged as a state jail felony punishable by 6 months to 2 years in jail, a fine of up to $10,000, and a license suspension of 90 days up to two years. You will also be assessed a $1,000 to $2,000 annual surcharge every year for three years to keep your driver’s license.

Intoxication assault convictions carry the same penalties as those for a DWI with a minor in the car. Intoxication manslaughter convictions carry similar penalties with prison time extending up to 20 years. In addition, you may be required to install and maintain an ignition interlock device in your vehicle. You may also be subject to random drug/alcohol testing by the court.
