After getting charged with a DWI, most people hope to have their charges dismissed altogether. Depending on the circumstances of your case, you may be able to get your charge dismisssed, as the state carries the burden of proving each and every element of a DWI charge beyond a reasonable doubt. If it can't carry that heavy burden, they must dismiss. You are also constitutionally entitled to a jury trial, the result of which could be an acquittal by that jury. In some Texas counties, the District Attorney might be willing to offer a "Pretrial Intervention" program, whereby you agree to complete certain terms and conditions over a period of time in exchange for an eventual dismissal. In rare cases, the DWI charge may be reduced to a "reckless driving" or "obstruction of a highway" charge, which are criminal charges with fewer negative overall consequences.
