A: Anything over 2 DWIs in Texas is going to be a 3rd degree felony. You do run the risk, however, of the charge being enhanced to a habitual felony due to your prior felony DWI convictions. That would jump you up to a 2nd degree felony. You need to contact a defense attorney immediately to try to get a handle on your situation. Good luck.
