Houston DWI Attorney I have mentioned previously how the upcoming DWI Pretrial Diversion program
proposed by the Harris County District Attorney's Office is going
to benefit a great number of people. Despite all the benefits there are
sure to be some negatives associated with the program. For instance, once
the word gets out about the program DWI arrests will increase in the greater
Houston area. Police agencies will arrest more people because they will
know that the prosecutor will readily offer a Pretrial Diversion.
Also, it has been a long held belief within the DWI task forces that the
accused may "beat the rap, but will not "beat the ride."
In other words, a person accused of a DWI will have to bear the expense
of hiring a DWI attorney in order to properly defend a DWI case. Moreover,
prosecutors will become less inclined to dismiss a DWI charge because
they are going to push the pretrial diversion alternative.
