South Irving Man Arrested for Repeat DWI Offenses and Other Charges, Raises Concerns About Legal System

Tom Olvera

On January 17, 2024, at approximately 10:00 pm, Irving Police arrested 58-year-old Tom Olvera of South Irving on charges of Driving While Intoxicated (DWI), marking a troubling pattern of repeat offenses. Olvera, residing on Willow Wood Ct, near W. Shady Grove Rd and S. Story Rd, was stopped for speeding, leading to the discovery of his intoxicated state. A blood test confirmed that he was drunk while driving.

Olvera was charged with DWI for the third or more time. His bond has been set at $4,000. It was revealed that Olvera was driving with a suspended license at the time of his arrest.

During the traffic stop, law enforcement found Olvera in possession of drug paraphernalia, and his vehicle was determined to be unregistered. This incident sheds light on a history of legal troubles for Olvera, who has faced previous charges related to drug possession and DWI.

Records indicate that in 2013, Olvera faced charges for marijuana possession and driving with an invalid license. In 2012, he was arrested for possession of cocaine. A subsequent arrest in 2014 in Dallas included charges of DWI, speeding, and possession of marijuana. Later that year, in September, he faced charges again for DWI, this time with an open alcohol container and a suspended license.

More recently, in 2021, Olvera was arrested for injury to a child with mental deficiency, a felony offense in Texas. Injury to a child, elderly person, or disabled person is a serious charge, carrying potential penalties of up to 99 years in prison or life imprisonment, along with a maximum fine of $10,000. The case remains ongoing.

Despite multiple encounters with the law, Olvera continues to receive opportunities to avoid incarceration. The repeated offenses raise concerns about public safety and the effectiveness of the legal system in preventing further harm.
