While operating a vehicle of any kind with a blood-alcohol content of over .08% (known as “driving while intoxicated”) is illegal in Texas, there is a second level to this crime for extreme cases. Known as an “aggravated DWI,” these instances are extremely dangerous and carry heavy penalties with life-altering consequences.

What Is an Aggravated DWI?

In order for a DWI charge to be considered aggravated, the case must be severe or cause extreme danger to another. Unlike a normal DWI, an aggravated DWI is considered a felony charge, which will lead to a lasting permanent criminal record with extensive consequences.

You can be charged with a felony aggravated DWI if:

  • Your blood alcohol exceeds .15%
  • You are facing your third DWI within the lookback period of both of the previous two
  • You had a child under the age of 15 in your car at the time of the arrest
  • You caused an accident that resulted in serious bodily injury

Aggravated DWI convictions will land you a minimum of six months in jail, but the judge could also give you up to 20 years. You could also face fines of close to $10,000, not including your legal fees, costs to install an ignition interlock device, and more.
