There are number of court related consequences that accompany convictions for DWI offenses in the state of Texas.

If you’re ever convicted for DWI there’s no chance for deferred adjudication, no opportunity to gain a Certificate of Non-Disclosure to hide your criminal offense, and most certainly no expungement/expunction possibilities.

DWI convictions are final meaning that a conviction will remain on your record for as long as the record exists.

There are also fines ranging from $1000 on up to $10,000 depending on the severity of the criminal offense in which DWI was a key factor.

There also probationary periods that can make your life a living hell if you have become accustomed to enjoying life, driving, and pursuing happiness. Just think of that mechanical device state of Texas wants to put on your car in the event that you are convicted of a DWI offense; another court imposed penalty that can make everyday life uncomfortable.

You may even be forced to participate in a 24 hour DWI presentation, or to be quite frank, whatever the judge wants you to do to demonstrate to him/her/the court that you’ve learned your lesson.
