There are four types of DWI felonies in Texas, each carrying their own set of circumstances—and each calling for serious defense representation.

A person could face felony-level charges for the following:

  • A third DWI
  • DWI with a child passenger (under the age of 15)
  • Intoxication assault (DWI accident resulting in injuries)
  • Intoxication manslaughter

Penalties for these felonies can vary. A third DWI and intoxication assault are third-degree felonies that can both result in prison time—as can manslaughter, which is a second-degree felony. DWI with a child passenger is defined as a state jail felony, which can result in up to two years in a state jail facility. All of these sentences are subject to fines up to $10,000 and up to two years of license suspension.
