DWI Charges: Misdemeanor or Felony

The first DWI charge is usually a misdemeanor charge, and an experienced Criminal Defense Attorney can aggressively defend that charge with the goal of dismissal or deferred adjudication. However, if the first DWI charge involves another crime (involuntary manslaughter, drug trafficking) then felony charges may be involved in the DWI defense. And if the first DWI charge is complicated by the fact that a minor child was in the vehicle at the time of the DWI arrest, then the defendant faces a state jail felony if convicted.
