Is a DWI a felony?

A DWI can sometimes result in felony charges, depending on the circumstances of the offense. A third offense will always be prosecuted as a felony, but even a first offense can be elevated to a felony charge if certain aggravating factors are involved such as causing extreme injury or having a minor under 15 years of age in the vehicle with you. Felony convictions involve a prison sentence of at least one year, and significantly higher fines and penalties than lesser charges.

If you are currently facing felony DWI charges, contact the Houston DWI defense lawyers of Johnson, Johnson & Baer, P.C., by calling 713-222-0400.
