Plano Man Sentenced to 40 Years for DWI

On February 21, 2010 a man was pulled over for running a red light, upon approaching the vehicle, the officer noticed that the traffic violator had alcohol on his breath and slurred speech. The officer proceeded to conduct three standardized field sobriety tests, all three of which the man failed. The man admitted to the officer that he had been drinking; he additionally asked if he could just walk home. The man was arrested, but he refused to give consent for a blood test to determine his BAC.

The police officer ran a background check on the man, and discovered that he had at least three prior DWI convictions, his third being in 1992. Upon this discovery, the officer took the man to a medical facility for a mandatory blood draw under Texas DWI law. The blood test found the man to have a blood alcohol content of 0.23; this is almost three times the legal limit of 0.08. It was further discovered that the man had already served jail time for two prior DWI convictions; his third DWI conviction came with a sentence for 15 years. The Collin County Judge sentenced the man to 40 years in prison after having examined testimonies and evidence pertaining to the case.
