Extreme DWI Law Targets High-BAC Offenders in Texas

A new DWI law in Texas increases the penalties for high-BAC offenders. Those arrested for driving while intoxicated with a BAC greater than 0.15 will be charged with “Extreme DWI” and if convicted could face a year in jail and a $4,000 fine which is twice that of a regular DWI charge. The offense also increased from a Class B misdemeanor to a Class A misdemeanor.
