Texas man sentenced to 50 years for fourth DWI

A Texas man has been sentenced to prison for 50 years in prison for repeatedly breaking the state's drunk driving laws. Sentences such as this one are often handed down to drunk drivers who have caused a fatal crash, but the 48-year-old Galveston County man sentenced on March 11 was not involved in an accident. Prosecutors said that the man received the long sentence because of three prior DWI convictions, the most recent of which occurred in 2009, and two prior felony convictions.

Accusations of domestic assault in Texas, especially those involving choking can mean very serious potential criminal penalties. An assault charge can go from being a misdemeanor to a felony just for a single allegation of choking. The public policy behind this is likely due to the increased possibility for death if a person chokes someone as opposed to hitting them. However, it often creates a much more difficult road for the accused if choking is part of the fact pattern.
