Nights out on the town in Houston are fun and vibrant, but can quickly take a turn for the worst. If you made the mistake of getting behind the wheel after having a few drinks and were stopped by law enforcement, now you have to deal with a DWI charge. You'll likely face hefty fines, lengthy jail time, license revocation and other consequences. Losing your freedom on the road can have serious, rippling consequences throughout your life.
