Potential penalties when charged with boating while intoxicated?

On a hot Texas summer day, people are focused on staying cool and having a good time with their family. That's why so many head to local lakes or rivers to enjoy a day on the water. With leisure time comes the occasional beer, wine or mixed-drink. However, did you know that those operating a boat or other watercraft can be charged with boating while intoxicated?

DWI conviction can jeopardize University of Texas education

Travis County residents have a lot of pride in the University of Texas (UT), and rightly so. It is an institution that has been in existence for over 130 years, and has a proud tradition of both academic and athletic excellence. Students at such a prestigious school are indeed lucky to have the opportunity to advance their knowledge and social skills. Of course, college isn't all about studying, however, and with many students being away from home for the first time, some may get themselves into difficult situations.

DWI charge needn't result in the potential consequences

It is more common than one might think. You might be out with your friends, enjoying a drink at the local watering hole. Or how about out to dinner with you wife, enjoying a glass of wine with dinner. Even one or two drinks could put a person in a situation they would rather not be in.

DWI conviction can affect person's educational future

DWI's can have a lasting impact on your life. Oftentimes young people are charged with DWI after they are suspected of driving under the influence. Sometimes a person isn't even legal drinking age when they are charged with DWI or a DWI-related crime. For young people especially, a DWI conviction can have a lasting impact on their life.

What should I expect when charged with first-time DWI?

When getting together with friends or going out to dinner, it is common to enjoy an alcoholic beverage or two. The reality is that a couple of drinks or even one drink can mean that one's blood alcohol concentration rises above the legal limit for operating a vehicle. Unfortunately, this has led to some Austin residents being pulled over by authorities and charged with DWI. For many people facing a DWI charge, this is their first offense and they aren't sure what to expect.

Man arrested on DWI charges after crashing expensive sports car

It is generally understood that driving under the influence is a violation of the law and can lead to various penalties if the person is convicted. Drivers in Austin need to know about the potential consequences of charges for driving while intoxicated, but they also should know about how an investigation and arrest is supposed to be conducted to adhere to the law from the law enforcement point of view. Regardless of the circumstances of the alleged DWI, one of the most important factors in the outcome is to have a strong legal defense.

Potential consequences for an open container of alcohol in a car

Texans might believe that they can only be arrested and charged with DWI offenses and alcohol-related violations while in a car if they are operating the vehicle under the influence. However, there are other aspects of the law that can result in being charged for alcohol-related offenses while in a motor vehicle. It is important to know the justifications behind a charge for being in possession of an alcoholic beverage in a motor vehicle and the when it is legal under the law to have an open container.
