First Offense DWI Charges & Penalties in Walker County

Even a first DWI offense can have serious consequences, which is why it is essential to consult a defense lawyer if you have been arrested for a Walker County DWI.

A skilled Walker County DWI attorney can work to help you avoid these penalties so you have the opportunity to move on with your life.

DWI, or driving while intoxicated, is the criminal offense of operating a motor vehicle while: one’s physical or mental abilities are impaired and/or with a blood alcohol concentration of .08%. Upon pulling you over, a police officer will likely ask you to perform field sobriety tests. If the officer has probable cause to believe that you have been driving while intoxicated, he/she will arrest you and ask you to submit to a breath or blood test to determine your blood alcohol level. While you can refuse to perform field sobriety tests without criminal repercussions, refusing a breath test or blood test will result in the automatic suspension of your driver’s license.
