Alec McGuire, band director at Robert E. Lee High School of Goose Creek Independent School District, was arrested Monday in San Antonio and charged with driving under the influence.

McGuire was in San Antonio to observe the State Marching Band Contest on business.  He travelled alone to San Antonio, and no students were present for any of the above proceedings.

He will be placed on administrative leave, and the outcome of the investigation will determine pay.

If you have been charged with DUI, it is important to have experienced representation on your side to guide you through this difficult time.  Contact Houston drunk driving defense attorneys of Johnson, Johnson & Baer, P.C. at 713-523-0404.

Bill could change DUI penalties for .15 BAC and higher

Posted on June 15th, 2011 No Comments

A bill currently awaiting a signature from Governor Perry could change penalties for those arrested and charged with a DUI for having a blood alcohol content of .15 percent or higher.

The bill was written by Houston State Senator Dan Patrick and proposes changing charges for those with a blood alcohol content of two times the legal limit from Class B misdemeanors to Class A misdemeanors.

This bill could effectively double penalties related to DUIs.  If the bill is signed, individuals with BACs over .15 percent could face a fine of up to $4,000 and jail time of up to a year.  The bill will become effective on September 1st if the governor decides to sign.
