- Imprisonment, and
- Revocation or suspension of driving privileges.
DUI/DWI convictions also have devastating professional and personal ramifications that last. This may include loss of personal relationship, child custody or visitation, or employment opportunities. A Navarro County DWI lawyer will work hard to negotiate a reduction or dismissal of your DUI/DWI charges and/or penalties by challenging the results of your Breathalyzer, alcohol blood test, or the standardized field sobriety tests.
