Texas DWI Defense Attorney Discusses DWIs with Additional Charges

A driver who is suspected of driving while intoxicated caused a fatal accident when he failed to stop at a red light while he was fleeing from police in north Houston. Police were pursuing the driver because he had been driving erratically. The chase proceeded through a U-turn, a parking lot, and northbound, onto the North Freeway Service Road where it ended at Tidwell, where the crash occurred. The wreck claimed the life of a teenage girl who was driving home from prom. Her prom date sustained serious injuries as a result of the crash.

In many cases involving a traffic stop and DWI investigation, a driver is arrested and charged with DWI and nothing more. Some cases involve more than a traffic stop, though. Some drivers break other laws while they are violating the drunk driving law. Fleeing from police in a vehicle or on foot, assaulting police officers, having drugs in their possession, and driving with a suspended license are just some of the offenses that drivers may be charged with in connection with their conduct around the time of their DWI traffic stop.

A DWI carries grave consequences for a driver who is convicted of driving under the influence of alcohol. License suspension, fines, incarceration, and potential risks to job security, housing security, and other important things can have a variety of impacts on a person’s life. The other charges that can accompany a DWI, especially in particularly tragic situations like the fatal accident described above, can have consequences even more severe than those associated with a DWI. It is, therefore, possible that a series of choices made by a defendant within a short period can lead to a series of charges which, if they result in convictions, can completely change the trajectory of that driver’s life.

All DWI defendants can benefit from the assistance of experienced counsel, and defendants who are facing one or more other charges in connection with their DWI are no exception. With so much at stake, defendants who are facing multiple charges need someone in their corner who can look at all of the facts and formulate a strong defense. DWI and criminal cases proceed through various stages from beginning to end, and a skilled DWI defense attorney can help you know what to expect and answer your questions at every step of the way. If you learn of options for resolving your case, your attorney can help you understand whether those options are the right choice for you.
