Board-Certified Criminal Defense Attorney Who Will Treat You With Respect

Fighting Felony DWI Charges for Fort Worth Clients

Repeat DWI offenders and other felony DWI offenders often get a bad rap, and are treated poorly because of it. The Carreras Law Group, P.C. refuses to treat you with anything but respect.

When you reach out to Carreras Law Group, DWI defense lawyer Kara Carreras will devise a strategy to protect your rights, driving privileges and future. Our goal is always to make sure that your mistakes do not define who you are or what your future looks like.

When a DWI Charge Reaches the Felony Level

A second or subsequent DWI in a 5-year period will result in automatic placement of an ignition interlock device in your vehicle. This device works like a Breathalyzer test, and will not allow you to operate your vehicle if it reads a noticeable blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level.

Ms. Carreras will fight aggressively on your behalf, regardless of the type of felony DWI charge you face:


Driving while intoxicated with a minor in the car

If you are driving under the influence of alcohol, and a law enforcement officer finds a child under the age of 15 in the car with you, you will face state jail felony charges. This holds true whether you this is your first-offense DWI or a subsequent offense.

violent crimes

3rd offense DWI

A 3rd or subsequent offense in 10 years is a 3rd degree felony in Texas. This means you can spend anywhere from 2-10 years in a Texas Department of Criminal Justice prison and pay up to $10,000 in fines. You may also lose your license for up to 2 years.


Intoxication assault

You will also face 3rd degree felony charges if you seriously injure someone else due while driving under the influence.


Intoxication manslaughter

Finally, you can face 2nd degree felony charges if you unintentionally cause the death of another person while drunk driving. A 2nd degree felony conviction carries with it a 2-20 year prison sentence and up to $10,000 in fines.

Felony Alcohol Intervention Program (FAIP)

Fort Worth has a special post-conviction program, FAIP, in place for high-risk repeat DWI offenders. Its goal is to move certain repeat offenders outside of the traditional probation process and into a more treatment-oriented rehabilitative program.

The benefits of this program include strong treatment opportunities, supervised probation versus prison, and lower costs associated with the probation period. It can also help you turn your life around, giving you a chance for a better future. To learn if you may be eligible for this program, speak with felony DWI defense attorney.
