DWI with Child Passenger Penalties

According to Texas Penal Code § 49.045, if a person operates a vehicle while intoxicated on a public road with a child passenger who is under 15 years of age, they can be charged with DWI with a Child Passenger in Texas. It is considered a state jail felony, which is punishable by a jail sentence between 180 days and two years and a fine of up to $10,000.

Not only will you be facing harsh penalties, but this type of crime can be construed as a form of child endangerment or abuse, which could potentially result in removing the child from you custody by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services.
