There are many people who have been convicted of a DUI just once in their lives never to do so again, and have felt a sincere whiplash of consequences following this one time mistake. If you are one of those people, Kyle Shaw and his legal team have good news for you. A new Texas law regarding first-time DWI offenders was recently signed by Governor Greg Abbott regarding this very situation, and it adds a forgiving nature to what was an otherwise incredibly intolerant conviction.
What this law does is allow a second chance for those who were first-time DWI offenders and did not cause an accident, harm anyone else, or have a blood alcohol content of over .14 during the time of arrest. If you are a first-time offender and are wondering how you can qualify for the benefits of this new law, all you need to do is make sure you follow through with all necessary court orders and meet the initial requirements. If done so accurately and on time, your record will remain sealed from the prying eyes of the public, such as future employers who would normally have used your DWI as a reason not to hire you.
Though this won’t make the entire situation disappear, it will greatly improve your chances of moving on from this difficult ordeal. Law enforcement will still have access to this information, as it is necessary to keep track of your record in case of a future violation. Therefore, you won’t be permanently threatened with the consequences of this conviction. This is a great opportunity for moving on from what was undoubtedly a very regrettable mistake. Instead of being branded for life, first-time DWI offenders may finally find respite from all of the social stigmas that would have otherwise followed them around for the rest of their lives.
