    Answered . It is unclear if your husband was arrested for a new DWI? In Texas, if an individual has two prior convictions for DWI his 3rd is a felony with a possible sentence of 2-10 years in the Texas Department of Corrections. It may be possible for your husband to both receive probation and be allowed to complete his current probation. DWI cases are extremely fact specific, your husband needs an experienced DWI attorney to help him immediately.
