Dallas Assistant DA Arrested, Charged with DWI

According to several news outlets, Justin Moore, Dallas County Assistant District Attorney, was arrested early Sunday morning and charged with driving while intoxicated (DWI). Police pulled Moore over at around 2:45 am on Sunday, January 4th, after observing erratic driving behaviors, including tailgating, speeding, and weaving in and out of his lane.

According to police reports, Moore refused to exit his car when asked to by law enforcement, and was subsequently taken into custody on suspicion of drunk driving. He was later booked at the Dallas County jail on charges of DWI.

According to the District Attorney’s office, Moore has been suspended without pay until his arrest and charges can be further investigated.

9th DWI charge leads to conviction of Montgomery man

A 53-year-old man from Montgomery County, Texas was sentenced to 30 years in jail after entering a guilty plea for his ninth DWI offense during a jury trial at Conroe’s 221st State District Court on Monday, August 19.

Court records show that Kevin Michael Koch was arrested for the ninth time for DWI on Walden Road near Lake Conroe on September 30, 2011. Assistant District Attorney Vince Santini said Koch’s notorious string of DWI violations, which began in 1980 led to Koch’s most serious conviction to date and prevented his request for probation to be granted.

Santini said that it took the prosecution a lot of time to gather all the DWI records of Koch, which was credited to the hard work of Montgomery County police investigator Heather Cash.

Koch is still being held at the Montgomery County jail, from which he will be transferred to a prison to serve at least 7 years before becoming eligible for probation.

Serving a long prison term for multiple DWI charges is something anyone charged with such a crime in Texas wants to avoid. At the Law Offices of Mark T. Lassiter, our lawyers can help you build a strong defense if you have been charged with a DWI offense. Call (214) 845-7007 today.
