Above .15% BAC DWI

Texas law increases the seriousness of DWI cases with Breath or Blood test result above .15% BAC. for repeat arrests. This is an Enhanced DWI, which is a Class A Misdemeanor. That means a DWI with a blood or breath test above .15% BAC will carry a potential penalty up to 365 days Jail and/or $4,000 fines + costs.

Enhancement Eliminates DWI Record Sealing Later

A new 2017 law allows certain DWI convictions to be sealed from the genereal public. But, a conviction on the enhanced "Above .15% BAC" DWI will cause the person to be ineligible to have their record sealed.
