The Texas criminal justice system can be intimidating and frustrating. Don’t let it ruin your future.
Consequences of a DWI Conviction in Texas
For first-time offenders, their first concern is usually what type of penalties they may be facing. In Texas, penalties for a first DWI offense include:
- jail time, and
- loss of driving privileges.
Aside from the legal consequences, DWI convictions can also carry with them devastating personal and professional ramifications. Attorney John Eastland will work relentlessly to protect your future. After examining your case, he will determine whether he can get the charges against you reduced or even dismissed.
Breathalyzer Tests and Alcohol Blood Tests
If you took a breathalyzer test or alcohol blood test that showed a BAC of .08 or higher, your Bullard DWI lawyer may be able to challenge the results of such tests. Law enforcement may not have calibrated or administered the breathalyzer properly. Similarly, the blood test may not have been administered according to protocol.
Attorney John Eastland stays on the cutting edge of the “science” behind DWI chemical tests. Moreover, he will consider whether other factors such as pre-existing medical conditions may have affected the accuracy of the tests. His experience can help you reduce or overturn the charges you face.
Standardized Field Sobriety Tests
As a certified standardized field sobriety test (SFST) practitioner, John Eastland has received training for the following tests:
- Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus
- One Leg Stand
- Walk and Turn
He knows that such “balance” tests are often inaccurate and yield unreliable results, and will use that knowledge to challenge the charges against you.
