Houston Area Criminal Attorney Creates Video Explaining Rights With A DWI Stop

When stopped with a DWI stop you want to be sure you know your rights so that you don't incriminate yourself by talking too much. JL Carpenter explains your rights in this video.

Friendswood, United States - September 14, 2018 /PressCable/ —

The penalty for being arrested and convicted for a DWI in Texas can be serious. While it is important to obey the law, you do not need to aid the police in their investigation. This means knowing your rights during a DWI stop.

One of the most important rights is “The right to remain silent.” It is so easy in the heat of the minute to want to be cooperative and talk too much. Back in the 1940’s there was a saying that, “Lose lips can sink ships.” Today you could say, “Lose lips can sink your case before your attorney has a chance to go to work.”
