When someone is charged with a DUI or DWI in San Antonio, Texas, there are potential major repercussions not just in court but also at home, at school, and at work. In certain situations, a DWI may have an impact on one's reputation, ability to obtain future employment, and even parental rights. It's critical to hire a DUI lawyer to help defend your legal rights and freedoms after being charged with a DUI or DWI in San Antonio.
A person is considered intoxicated under Texas Penal Code Annotated 49.01 if he or she no longer has sufficient mental or physical control as a result of drug, alcohol, or a combination of both substances.
If you are caught driving while intoxicated in Texas, you can face severe consequences. Underage and commercial drivers may be subject to even stricter penalties. You may also be charged if it is determined that you are too impaired to drive or if there is an open container of alcohol in your vehicle.
A chemical test may be used to reveal if a person is intoxicated. A Texas resident who is stopped while driving and has a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) above .08 will likely appear intoxicated to the officer. If it's clear that the driver has exceeded the legal limit, they will be arrested even if regular tasks can still be performed without issue. While you as the driver can refuse these tests, know that there may be consequences for doing so — seek guidance from a DUI attorney to make informed decisions.
If your driver's license is revoked, you can appeal the decision. You are entitled to an administrative license revocation hearing at which you may defend yourself against the suspension. This is distinct from criminal charges, but you are still entitled to legal representation from a DUI attorney. For more information about administrative license revocation hearings, contact the San Antonio DWI at The Law Office of E.R. Báez.
