Judge convicts man of DWI, insists he wasn’t driving

Posted on April 14th, 2011 No Comments

A Houston man was recently convicted of driving while intoxicated despite repeated claims that he was not at the wheel of the car.  The man’s daughter testified to the court that she was driving on the evening that he was arrested.

Police pulled over the white Chevy Astro van being driven by the daughter after receiving reports that the vehicle had been swerving in the northbound lanes of U.S. 59, just south of Sugarland.  The officer noticed that the man, who was sitting in the passenger seat, had red, glassy eyes, and asked to see his driver’s license.

Despite insisting that he had not been driving that evening, the officer arrested him and charged him with drunk driving.  In court, he continued to try to tell officers that his daughter had been driving all evening, however the judge at his trial still convicted him of a Class B misdemeanor DWI.

If you have been charged with driving while intoxicated, having experienced legal representation at your side will be key in the outcome of your case.  Contact the Houston DWI attorneys of Johnson, Johnson & Baer, P.C. at 713-222-0400 to set up an appointment to meet with us today.
