Thinking About the Houston DWI DIVERT Program? Have a Concealed Handgun License?

Is your concealed handgun license important to you?  If so, the Harris County DIVERT Program may not be for you.  You see, if you have a pending charge for DWI, DPS may send you a notice that they are going to try and suspend your License to Carry a Concealed Handgun.

So how does this relate to the DIVERT Program?  While you are a participant in the DIVERT Program, your DWI case is still "PENDING" in the Harris County court system.  Beware, the entire time your DWI case is pending you may not be eligible to carry your concealed handgun license.  If you are concerned, ask your DWI lawyer about the ramifications of the DIVERT Program on your concealed handgun license.

Just one more potential pitfall with the Harris County DIVERT Program that no one told you about.
