A first-time DWI conviction can yield severe penalties including fines of up to $2,000, jail time of up to 180 days, and license suspension of up to one year. However, if a driver is found to be in possession of illegal drugs or under the influence of drugs, he or she may face increased penalties.

If you have been charged with drunk driving and a correlating drug crime such as drug trafficking, it is important that you work with a defense attorney who understands DWI law and knows how to craft an aggressive defense. As a former prosecutor, attorney Richard DeToto has been involved in more than 5,000 drunk driving cases. Our firm is also experienced in drug crimes defense. We understand how to separate and isolate the charges you are facing to seek the most favorable outcome for you.

DWI Defense Involving Drugs in Texas

In a DWI case involving drugs, there are several factors that must be considered to build a defense:

  • Was the defendant taking any prescription drugs?
  • Was a Drug Recognition Expert (DRE) employed to determine if the defendant was under the influence of drugs?
  • Were field sobriety tests or a breathalyzer test administered? Was blood alcohol content (BAC) accurately tested?
  • Why was the initial traffic stop made?
  • Was illegal search and seizure an issue?

When you come in to our law office to discuss your case, you will know that you are dealing with attorneys who take your charges as seriously as you do.
