Going out and enjoying a drink on the weekend is second nature to many in Texas. However, safe driving habits -- such as always having a designated driver -- are not always as common.

It is no secret that a criminal record can impact the course of a person's life.

These consequences may be even more severe when drunk driving charges are filed alongside other charges, such as intoxication manslaughter.
