12-time DWI offender appeals 10-year sentence

Carlos Faz, who has repeatedly been arrested for drunken driving charges, is appealing for probation and rehabilitation instead of jail time, according to KENS-TV on June 5.

Faz was sentenced in April 2015 to 10 years of imprisonment after he was convicted in Bexar County for his 12th driving while intoxicated charge.

In Texas, each DWI offense can result in a stricter penalty, with the offense graduating to a felony after three convictions–a charge that typically amounts to two to ten years of jail time.

Faz was first arrested for a DWI in 1975. His criminal history showed that his DWI convictions have been far and in between, with no convictions between the late 80’s and the early 2000’s.
