Do I still have the right to a trial by jury after a year and 11 months if it is still in pre trial?
I was arrested for a Dwi a year and 11 months ago, there was no breathalyzer and no blood taken, in the sobriety test the officer left the cruiser lights on which effected my eye test for sure, Also you can not here any Audio on the video because the audio apparently was hooked to a different cruiser across the parking lot. My lawyer told me to do the 12 hour victim impact panel, and Maad class as well as 40 hours community service, I have completed both classes and have 20 hours left, but he is telling me I'm running out of time and that he just gonna take a plea.. Which is not what I hired him to do.. I'm wondering what my options are. should I take it to trial?

Going to court on many violations on 2 yr. probation for a 2nd DWI charge. Most use of drugs/alcohol sanctions. What to expect?
I took 2 yrs probation as opposed to 365 days on a 2nd DWI charge. I have fulfilled all the required classes and kept up with the fines and only have one more requirement left, community service. I have 5 mo. left on probation however their have been multiple violations due to the use of drugs and alcohol. I was sent to court-ordered treatment then became subject to random drug/alcohol testing which I have failed a few times. My court hearing is in a week a court recommended hair follicle testing but I told the court officer I would test positive because I had not stayed sober after treatment. Also the court recommends an alcohol detecting ankle monitor that will pick up any indication the person wearing it has consumed alcohol and report it to courts immediately. This ankle monitor is $350 a month! I want to ask for increase in random drug/alcohol urinalysis testing to compensate for more likelihood of drug/alcohol detection

Will pleading guilty in a DWI with a child under 15 automatically make the accussed inadmisable?
My fiance is 3 days away from signing a 12.44 (a) which will reduce the amount of time he's incarcerated but will leave a "state jail felony" in his record. We are thinking on telling the lawyer to reset the court date because it was not fully explained to us the effects it will have on his immigration status and if in the future he will have difficulty re entering the country legally. Since a DWI with a minor is not an "aggravated felony" does he still have a chance to become legal and be admisable versus just being inadmisable for over 3 years?
This is an immigration law question. I am moving it there.

What penalties could be dropped when hiring an attorney for a 1st offence DWI in Tarrant county, Texas?
I was pulled over and arrested on Saturday in Mansfield, Texas for a 1st offence DWI. I was given a sobriety test but failed miserably. Blood was drawn at the police department. They kept my there till the next day. Will this count as time served? If I hire my own attorney, what penalties could be waived? My current job is very strict on how many days missed. Are the following required? SR-22 insurance or an interlock on my vehicle?
Because of time limits, even with a blood draw, regarding your Driver License, you must hire an experienced DWI defense...
