i can provide the following information
TX law provides if it is shown that a person has been previously convicted of DWI, the punishment and penalties after conviction are increased or enhanced, if the prior DWI conviction occurred within 10 years of the present arrest for DWI - this is regardless if the prior conviction occurred in TX
these are the penalties for a second conviction
fine not to exceed $4,000.00, confinement in the county jail for a term of not less than 72 hours nor more than 1 year, community service 80 to 200 hours, deep lung air device, driving privilege suspended for 180 days to 2 years.
you may want to consult with a local attorney and then decide if you should hire them - they might be able to keep you from jail time, and your supension of DL to a minimum, as well as a lower fine.
i answered the question you asked with the detail. i cannot tell you how to plead as that would be considered giving "advice" - i presented your options. but if you are not satisfied with my answer, i will opt out and see if another attorney will tell you what you should do.
