Felony DWI Dismissed after Cop Indicted

Remember the Conroe Police Officer that was indicted for falsifying a DWI offense report?  Well good news for our client that was arrested by this officer - his felony DWI case was dismissed yesterday.

Our client had absolutely nothing to drink and looked and sounded absolutely sober on the video.  He was still arrested and charged with Felony DWI, had to make a bond and hire a Texas DWI attorney.  Additionally, he had the ongoing worry of having a felony DWI hanging over his head for several months.

I don't normally write on this blog about our victories.  However, I think it is important to show just how easy it is to be arrested for a DWI / DUI.  All the cops have to do is say they smell alcohol and that you have not passed the field exercises and you as a citizen, are off to jail.  Fortunately in this case, the Montgomery County District Attorney's Office saw through this officer's BS.  Based on our years of experience, this calling the officer on his shenanigan and outright lies is the exception, not the rule. 

You ever caught a cop lying either in his report or on the witness stand?

Do Houston DWI cases ever get dismissed?

The simple answer is, Yes.  According to the Harris County Office of Court Management statistics, in 2008 there were 1100 Houston DWI cases dismissed.  Simple advice - hire a Houston DWI attorney that devotes the majority of his/her practice to defending Texas DWI cases.

As a Houston DWI lawyer responsible for many of these DWI dismissals, I know that there are a plethora of reasons that these DWI cases are dismissed.  However, at the root of just about every one of these DWI dismissals is a competent and dedicated DWI attorney that is fighting each and every step of the way. 


You can rest assured that the DA's office is doing everything they can to convict anyone arrested for DWI in Houston, Texas.  You must have someone just as dedicated to fight for you if you have been arrested for DWI.  That advice again, HIRE A COMPETENT DWI LAWYER.
