What Are the Consequences of a DWI Conviction in Texas?
If this is your first offense, you are likely wondering what type of penalties you face. In Texas, penalties include:
- jail time, and
- loss of driving privileges.
In addition to these legal consequences, a DWI conviction can also have devastating effects on your personal and professional life. John Eastland, Attorney at Law, P.C. will work to aggressively defend your future. He will examine the facts of your case to see whether charges can be reduced or even dismissed.
Challenging Breathalyzer Tests and Alcohol Blood Tests
If you took a breath test or blood test that showed your BAC was .08 or higher, your Lindale DWI lawyer will investigate your case and challenge the results. Breathalyzers may not be calibrated or administered properly. Similarly, law enforcement may not have administered a blood test according to protocol.
Attorney John Eastland knows that other factors could affect the accuracy of such tests as well, such as medical conditions or whether or not you ingested any food prior to taking the tests. Staying on the cutting edge of such technical tests, he can help you reduce or overturn the charges against you.
Challenging Standardized Field Sobriety Tests
John has also been trained and certified to administer standardized field sobriety tests (SFSTs), including the following:
As an SFST practitioner, he knows what affects the accuracy of these “balance” tests, and will use that knowledge to develop a strong defense for your case.
