Why Your License Could Still Be Suspended Even Though Courts Are Not Active Right Now
If you are planning to enjoy a night out with your friends in Fort Worth, it’s important to assign a designated driver. We at Jeff Brown Law want you and your friends to have a safe and happy holiday season. Sometimes, people forget how necessary this preparation is, and they decide to drive themselves home. And sometimes those people get pulled over by a police officer.
A first-time DWI offender is often charged with a misdemeanor. In Texas, a class B for a blood-
alcohol level of between .08 and less than .15, and a class A misdemeanor for a blood-alcohol
level of .15 or greater. However, there are instances where a DWI offender can be charged with felony-level charges instead of misdemeanors.
