Texas DWI Convict Sentenced to 45-years in Prison

By The Law Office of WT Johnson on June 21, 2012

A man from Forth Worth, Texas will go to jail for 45 years for his fifth DWI charge. Jurors only deliberated for four minutes before finding Stephen Hall guilty. Hall chose to have a judge determine his sentence.

Hall was pulled over last summer at River Oaks. When the officer came to his car, Hall said, “I am so under arrest,” according to the district attorney’s office. Hall admitted that he had had two beers. Yet his blood alcohol content was .18, more than two times the legal limit. 

He only served jail time for one of his previous four DWI convictions.

The County Assistant District Attorney stated that the sentence was appropriate considering his past DWIs, so now Hall will not be able to drive on the roads for a long time. He will serve 11 years before he can try to get parole.

In the past five years in Texas there have been 6,514 deaths as a result of DUIs. Last year 42% of total traffic deaths in Texas were DUI related. The average drunk driver has driven drunk 80 times before first arrest.

If you  or a loved one have been a victim of a drunk driver, you do not need to be a victim any longer. Contact the Law Firm of W.T. Johnson today to get the justice you deserve.
