CASE RESULT – STATE OF TEXAS VS J.W. – CLIENT ALLEGEDLY DROVE CAR INTO HOUSE, BLEW .301, ARRESTED FOR DWI.
RESULT: CASE REDUCED TO OBSTRUCTION OF HIGHWAY.
J.W. was driving one day when he allegedly caused his vehicle to leave the road and drive into a portion of a home. The police quickly arrived on the scene and J.W. was accused of Driving While Intoxicated (DWI).
J.W. performed field sobriety tests and was arrested for driving while intoxicated (DWI) in Galveston County, Texas. J.W. also consented to give a sample of his breath. J.W. was booked in the Galveston County jail. J.W. bonded out and immediately called our office for representation.
We were hired on the case and immediately got to work. We requested the dashcam videos from all of the police cars on the scene. After analyzing the officers’ actions, we began poking holes in the state’s DWI case.
Before trial, because of our representation, the state offered to reduce the driving while intoxicated (DWI) case to “obstruction of a highway” (an offense committed when a person obstructs a highway, street, sidewalk, railway, waterway, elevator, aisle, hallway, entrance, or exit to which the public or a substantial group of the public has access or any other place used for the passage of persons, vehicles, or conveyances).
J.W. took the deal. J.W. served no additional jail time, does not have a DWI conviction, and his driver’s license will not be suspended. Additionally, J.W. was never charged with the accident. J.W. never had to sit for a trial.
