Texas DUI Laws – Consequences of DUI Cases
If you are convicted of DUI, the Texas DUI laws mandate the loss of your driver’s license (sometimes), more than $3,000 over the next three years in DPS surcharges, two or more years of annoying DUI probation requirements (complete with counseling, mandatory DUI classes, and a Substance Abuse Evaluation), the installation of an ignition interlock device on your vehicle, and/or 72 hours or more in jail. A good DUI attorney can minimize these penalties and probably avoid the imposition of any jail time.
