In the state of Texas, the sentence commonly called probation is defined as community supervision. Community supervision is a possibility for a sentence after you have been convicted of a DWI. There are normally explicit conditions someone must adhere to when placed under community supervision. Our Houston DWI attorney at JM Davis Law PLLC can help clients understand their community supervision conditions and ensure their rights and best interests are safeguarded.

When under community supervision for a DWI, it is common to be required to:
If you are being required to complete an alcohol education program, you will typically need to complete that course within 180 days. In the event that rehabilitation treatment is determined to be necessary, you will have to complete a treatment program that is approved by the Texas Department of Criminal Justice or the Texas Commission on Alcohol and Drug Abuse. Repeat DWI offenders often face the mandatory installation of the interlock device on their car’s ignition.

Another approach you could take is asking the officer if you’re required to take the field sobriety tests. The honest answer: no, you’re not.
Stay polite and courteous, but do not apologize or admit to anything. Don’t try to talk your way out of anything, as you will likely incriminate yourself indoing so.
Exercise your rights. When the officer asks you incriminating questions-How much have you had to drink? When did you have your first drink? and so on...explain that your are uncomfortable answering questions of a criminal nature without an attornery present-ask to have your attorney present for any questioning, and tell the officer you otherwise would like to exercise your right to remain silent. Regardless of his response to your statements (“You’re not under arrest” or “You don’t need an attorney”), remain silent.
