Felony DWI Reductions | DWI Lawyer Fort Worth | Tarrant County | TX
Many times during a consultation on a Felony DWI charge, potential clients ask about getting their Felony DWI charge reduced to a misdemeanor, thus savings thousands of dollars, avoiding prison time, and saving years of probation visits and fees. This week our firm was able to do just that for one of our clients, where we were able to get a minimum misdemeanor DWI plea offer (probation and the minimum 3 days jail time) despite this being our client’s 4th DWI and despite the blood being 0.14 BAC and our client failing all 3 field sobriety tests. How? Questionable traffic stop.
How to get a DWI reduced to a Misdemeanor (or even Dismissed)?
Here are just some of the ways that a DWI Lawyer Fort Worth can get your DWI reduced to a misdemeanor, even when some of the facts in your case are bad (admission to drinking, high BAC, poor performance on field sobriety tests):
- The traffic stop is bad (no reasonable suspicion or probable cause for arrest).
- There was no probable cause for arrest (maybe the officer arrested you before performing the field sobriety tests or there was insufficient evidence to arrest even if later on your failed a blood test).
- The search warrant to collect your blood did not comply with Chapter 18 of the Texas Code of Criminal Procedure.
- The lab that tested your blood made errors in testing your blood.
- Despite being previously convicted twice for DWI, the State does not have the proper documentation to prove so beyond a reasonable doubt at trial.
