Misdemeanor Cases and DWI/DUI

Criminal offenses in Texas are classified as either felonies or misdemeanors based on their degree of seriousness.

Misdemeanors, the least serious of crimes, are further differentiated by degree (or class), a list of which follows. Many crimes that are categorized as misdemeanors may be enhanced to a higher-level offense if the defendant has previous convictions on his record. Let us consider Driving While Intoxicated as an example.

DWI is categorized as a Class B Misdemeanor for a first-time offense. If a person has one prior DWI conviction, then the punishment is increased to a Class A Misdemeanor. If the person has two prior convictions for DWI, then the punishment is increased to a Third Degree Felony.
