Defend Against DWI Charges in Houston

A Failed Breath Test Does Not Equal a DWI Conviction

You’re coming home from a night out with friends or family, and suddenly you see red and blue lights flashing in your rear-view mirror. A police officer approaches your car and asks you to step out of the car and take some “sobriety” tests. What do you do?

Unfortunately, as the trend nationwide is for states to substantially crack down on drunk or impaired drivers and enact laws that make the penalties for DWI increasingly more severe, Texas is no exception. All too often, an innocent individual with no prior criminal background becomes caught up in a DWI case, simply after having a few drinks. You may have not felt impaired when you chose to drive home, but under the law, the police say you are intoxicated.

You may face DWI charges if:

  • A breath or blood test shows a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08% or greater;
  • A blood or urine test shows unlawful quantities of a drug or drugs in your system; or
  • Your abilities are impaired as a result of drugs and/or alcohol.

A “failed” breath test, blood test, or drug test does not have to equal a DWI conviction. Call our Houston DWI attorneys at (713) 426-2244 to see how we can protect your interests.
