Is alcohol considered a drug in Texas?
An injunction in my divorce says "i can drug test her urine/follicle once a month " if she fails with illegal or prescription not hers she has to pay me back the costs.
Another says "no alcohol 12 hrs before nor during any time of possession nor be in possession in the home".
Yes it is. Under this order though, the specific provisions apply as written. I.E., you can test but the prohibition...
I know this is a stupid question. I'm out on bond for 3rd or more dwi. I just got indicted last week and they raised my bond.
They said my bond was to low $2500 I thought it was a little low and they raised it yesterday to $25000. My arraignment is two weeks and my pre trail appointment is Friday a warrant has issued and my plea date is in a month. I am self employed and it's been a rough summer if I report Friday they will arrest me and I'll be stuck in there with a court appointed lawyer which I don't want. I didn't blow they took my blood 4 hrs after being arrested and I thought I would be okay wouldn't be indicted but I was wrong and stupid. How much worse will I make it if I don't show and turn myself in when I have money for lawyer and bond I know my bond will go up not trying to run but I'm broke and don't know what to do my last dwi was 16 years ago and it was a felony also
Missing a court date is very bad. They will violate your bond, and there goes the money you have payed so far....
In Texas, how long does it take to be indicted when you're out on bond?
My husband was arrested Feb. 29, 2016 for DWI 3rd or more. He refused the breath test & did the blood test after he was arrested, which was about 5 hrs later. He saw the judge the next morning & I paid his bond. He's been going to his pretrial officer once a week. He has to pay $15 a week for his drug test, plus the $65 a month. We also have a breathilizer on our jeep. Here it is 5 months later & still no indictment. If he's having to do all this, how long does it usually take for an indictment? Do they just keep taking our money until he's indicted? I understand that's part of the process, but 5-6 months in to it, we're just ready for all this to be over. Please, how long does it take?
The statute of limitations for felony DWI 3rd is 3 years from the date of offense; the State has until then to file...
Will they still prosecute if his blood was under the legal limit? How long does it take for blood tests to come back?
My husband got arrested for dwi 3rd or more. He refused the breath test, was in custody for 4 hrs before they administered the blood test. He's pretty sure he passed the blood test by the time they took it. He went to court this morning, he hasn't been indicted yet. The video (if they have video) may not look good because he has a sciatic nerve problem & if he doesn't hold on to anything when he first stands up, rather getting out of bed, his chair, or his truck, he falls down. We have all the Dr. papers from the years over this. His first dwi was in 1990, 1996, 1996 (both counted as 2nd), 2001 (his third).
They can still prosecute if he passes the blood test. They didn't used to have blood or breath tests and they still got...

My DL suspension for my DWI is supposed to start in 39 days. Can I go ahead and petition for an occupational license so I don't have a period once my suspension starts where I can't drive to work or do I have to wait until the suspension officially starts?
This may differ by jurisdiction. You should consult an attorney to see what conditional, provisional, temporary, or...
