DWI With a Child Passenger
An arrest for drunk driving with a child is a serious offense in Texas
A driver who is pulled over for DWI and who has a child under 15 years old in the vehicle will face severe penalties in Texas. While generally a DWI is a misdemeanor offense, a DWI with a child passenger is considered a felony, which carries a possible state prison sentence of between 180 days and two years and a fine up to $10,000.

No one wants to endanger a child, and that's why the state has created harsh penalties for offenders. However, every case is unique. There may be extenuating circumstances that could lead to a dismissal or a lesser charge. The police officer or prosecutor may overreach. For example, you can be charged with this crime even if you have not failed a field sobriety test or a breathalyzer. The officer only needs to use his or her "judgment" to determine that you were intoxicated to some extent. You need a strong advocate who can help disprove the drunk driving charge.
Attorney Webb will leave no stone unturned in mounting your defense.
