  • I got a dwi in 2014 and got it dissmissed thru vetrans treatment court now I have another one does his mean it's 1st dwi ?

    Gary’s Answer

    You probably received a deferred adjudication on an obstruction Hwy on your first DWI. With that I mind the new case will be filed as a DWI 1st but will be treated by the DA as a DWI 2nd in terms of a plea bargain offer. In all likelihood you will be back in CC#6 with Judge Christian. I have known Judge Christian for over 30 years and he was my former law partner and he will be tough on this new case. It may be possible to get the case dismissed or be found not guilty depending on the facts of your case. I would recommend that you retain an experienced DWI lawyer. Most like myself will offer you a free consultation
