Can a drug related DWI be negotiated to a lesser charge?

Can a drug related DWI be negotiated to a lesser charge?

Can a drug-related DWI be negotiated to a lesser charge? Are there any diversion programs available for drug-related DWI offenders?

Gary Churak's Answer

Well, there could be a possibility of receiving a lesser included offense like obstruction of highway by alcohol or drugs could be offered as a plea bargain. Some counties have pre-trial diversion programs for younger defendants. It all depends on where your case is being prosecuted. Like I said, Bell County, for one, will not give a pre-trial diversion for a DWI and it’s very rare that you can get obstruction of the highway for any kind of drug-related DWI. However, in Wilson County, in just South of San Antonio, they’ll offer a pre-trial diversion for a DWI.
