Alcohol-Related Crimes

People have enjoyed alcohol for thousands of years for its taste as well as its ability to make the body feel more relaxed. However, alcohol has other effects on your body that can inhibit your ability to drive or make rational decisions. Thus, there are several different legal charges for alcohol-related crimes, all of which can have a long-lasting impact on your life and legal record.

If you have been charged with an alcohol-related crime, such as a DWI or DUI, you may face serious consequences such as jail time or license revocation. You should not face these charges alone. An experienced DWI attorney may be able to have your charges reduced or even dismissed. Contact a Dallas DUI lawyer from the Law Offices of Mark T.

Common Alcohol Charges

When you drink alcohol, the chemicals in the beverage significantly affect your brain. Alcohol alters the effectiveness of the inhibitory signals, which causes reduced coordination, decreased reactions, and inability to think clearly. Thus, your mind may trick you into driving drunk or participating in other alcohol-related crimes such as:

  • Driving while intoxicated
  • Driving under the influence
  • Boating while intoxicated
  • Intoxication assault
  • Intoxication manslaughter
  • DWI child endangerment
  • Public intoxication

If you are convicted of an alcohol-related crime, you may have to report this incident on job and school applications for the rest of your life. Additionally, it may keep certain opportunities out of your reach.
