Public Intoxication

Public Intoxication Lawyer in Tyler

Defending Your Rights & Fighting for Your Best Interests

We absolutely hate it when someone comes in for a free consultation about their DWI arrest, all worried sick about it. We’ll ask them, "Have you ever been arrested before?"

"No. Oh, wait, yeah—I got a public intoxication back when I was younger and another one last year when I was riding with Bubba and he got a DWI."

"OK," we say. "So how were you a danger?"

"Huh? There was no danger."

"So, why did you plead guilty?"

"I didn’t plead guilty."

"If you paid a fine, you pled guilty. Why?"

"It was the [easiest], [cheapest], [shortest], [fastest] way to get rid of it. Besides, it was no big deal."

"Well, now you have two alcohol-related convictions that will come back to haunt you on this DWI. So tell me, how were you a danger?"

"I wasn’t in danger. What do you mean?"

‘The law says [Texas Penal Code Sec. 49.02(a)] "A person commits an offense if the person appears in a public place while intoxicated to the degree that the person may endanger the person or another."

Actually, the burden of proof for a public intoxication is much higher than the burden of proof for a DWI. So don’t do anything that will affect your legal history without first calling a lawyer who knows the difference.
