Houston DWI Lawyer I like to inform my clients of what to expect in a
DWI case. I tell my client's that they need to be careful what they wish for
in a criminal court case. For example, a lot of people want to avoid having
the interlock installed in their vehicle by telling the court that they
do not have a car. Typically, the court does not just take your word.
The court asks our client if there is any vehicle in their home that they
have access to use. Also, the court makes the person sign an affidavit
stating they will not be driving any vehicle while they are on bond for
their DWI case. The consequences of being caught driving under this scenario
You could be arrested for driving while your license is suspended. If this
is the case the Judge may revoke your bond, and the Judge may also refrain
from granting you an
occupational license in the future. Lastly, many courts will order our client to get the scram
device installed if they claim that they do not have a vehicle to drive.
Most people say "no problem" until they realize that it will
cost them $12 a day or $400 a month to have this device. This is a significant
amount considering that a DWI case may take from two to six months to complete.
