For those who follow changes in DWI laws, a recent opinion by the U.S. Supreme Court will have a major impact on DWI laws across the country. The issue facing the Supreme Court was whether a state could make it a crime to refuse a breathalyzer or blood alcohol test if under suspicion of committing a DWI.

A term you may have heard before is due process, but what does it mean for those charged with DWI in Texas? Due process is one of the most important aspects of our legal system, particularly when it applies to those charged with a crime like DWI.

The question over whether implied consent laws violate due process and how far they can go to restrict rights and privileges continues its path through the courts. The most recent episode of this argument recently ended in the Texas Court of Appeals as a judge shot down an attempt to overturn Texas’s implied consent law.

One of the lesser-known elements of a DWI investigation is the discovery process that leads up to trial. Discovery is both an important tool and a statutory right of the defendant in any criminal defense case, including DWI. But what is it?

It was fifty years ago, in June of 1966, that the U.S. Supreme Court decided the landmark case of Miranda v. Arizona. Few judicial decisions have had the impact that one did, and the impact goes far beyond the legal world of DWI and other criminal charges. There is probably not a person old enough to have watched television who does not know about Miranda rights. We have all seen the police officer put handcuffs on a suspect and then “read them ...

In the state of Texas it is illegal to operate a vehicle in a public place while under the influence of alcohol. Whether a person is under the influence of alcohol can be determined a couple of different ways, and both result in the same penalty if convicted in the end. But the most popular method used to get convictions, breathalyzer tests, is increasingly coming under scrutiny.

The worlds of police power, jurisdiction, and legality of action collided in an opinion rendered by a neighboring state’s supreme court. That case, Zilke v. The State, asked the question of whether a campus police officer can make a stop and arrest for DWI outside the perimeters of the campus.

Tragically, a car accident in 2014 resulted in the death of four people. In that case, one of the drivers was taken into custody and charged with intoxication manslaughter for DWI and killing the four people in the other car. The facts of this case are stunning when viewed in light of the ever increasing pressure to throw the book at DWI suspects.

Many people may brush off the idea of a DWI as a serious legal issue, but nothing could be further from the truth. The facts are that first and subsequent DWI convictions put the person convicted in serious legal trouble. This principle was proved true in a recent sentence handed down to a many convicted of DWI in Texas.

In a somewhat stunning ruling, the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals recently overturned a lower court’s ruling suppressing the results of a warrantless blood draw. This ruling is a change in course of recent court rulings that time and again have chosen to suppress the results of warrantless blood draws.

The U.S. Supreme Court recently overturned a decades-old murder conviction because it was found that the jury selection process at trial had been tainted. According to the court’s opinion, when the prosecutors made their jury selections, they unconstitutionally dismissed jurors based on the color of their skin. What resulted was the conviction of a black man for murder by an all white jury.

In a case that reached the New Jersey Supreme Court for review, a defendant seeking to try his DWI case in front of a jury was denied that right. According to the published opinion, it was that man’s third time being charged for DWI, and he wanted to have his case tried before a jury because the penalties for DWI were very severe.
