Katy man convicted of DWI

After the jury deliberated for an hour, a Katy man, Wayne Keith Paris, 50, was convicted of DWI on February 24, 2011 for his offense in June of 2007. Paris was arrested by Katy Police Captain Bryon Woytek.

According to Assistant District Attorney Andrew Herreth, Captain Woytek was parked in the median of Kingsland Boulevard enforcing traffic laws on June 29, 2007. About 1 a.m., Captain Woytek observed a vehicle, operated by Paris, traveling westbound in the eastbound lanes of the road. Woytek immediately stopped the driver and when asked where he was coming from, Paris responded “drinkin.” Woytek reported that Paris appeared confused, was often incoherent and almost fell over during a sobriety evaluation. At the time of the incident, Paris was reportedly wearing a t-shirt proclaiming “I give under beer pressure”.

Paris was tried in County Court at Law No. 3 before Visiting Judge Larry Wagenbach. In this case, Driving While Intoxicated is a Class B Misdemeanor punishable by 3 to 180 days in jail and/or a fine up to $2,000. Paris is scheduled to be sentenced on March 4, 2011 to an 18-month probation including a $1,000 fine, 60 hours of community service and DWI education classes.

Assistant District Attorneys Andrew Herreth and Lesleigh Saunders prosecuted the case. Attorney Logene Foster represented the defendant.
