Second DWI

History of DWI? Aggressive & Experienced DWI Lawyers Can Help!

A DWI 2nd is a more serious offense compared to DWI 1st or DWI 1st with BAC greater than .15. In addition to proving the things necessary for a DWI 1st, the state must also prove there is a conviction on your record for any DWI type of offense. A DWI 2nd is a Class A misdemeanor with a minimum jail sentence of 30 days and a fine of up to $5,000 on top of court costs and possibly up to $4,500 to keep your driver’s license. 

If this is your second DWI arrest, the consequences are clearly more severe. You need a lawyer like RC Pate who has experience with past offenders.
