Hi, I'm in the beginning of a DWI case against me. I have a clean record and will be going to trial for the charge in Collin County.
If I am found guilty, I am considering forgoing probation for straight jail time, if it's only a few days. I understand I will still have to deal with the license aspect separately and the surcharge.
A. What is the typical jail sentence for first time DWI? I know it ranges from 3 days to 6 months, but I wanted to know the typical sentence.
B. Will the judge make the jail sentence harsher if I turn down probation?
C. Would you recommend doing the jail time instead of probation?
