Arrested for DWI in Aug 2014, Refused breath test and was taken to jail, bonded out next day, no previous record.
No previous driving or tickets. I am 57. DA wants me to take deal. 2 years probation drug testing etc. I have never been in trouble in my life. Totally clean driving record. Telling me Now I must call 2 days a week and come in for drug test if they so choose I also have to pay for the test. . I have not been to court yet and have not been found guilty.
Do you have an attorney? If not, why not? What is the question?
I refused dwi blood and breath test over 70 days ago and driver license is still valid?? Do u have a explanation for this??
I thought Texas gives you a 41 day driving permit before suspension on dwi refusal testing??
In some jurisdictions, the license is not suspended until there has actually been a conviction. You should use this...
In regards to a DWI in a town hours away from home, is it better to get an attorney from the arresting area, or closer to home?
It happened in a rural town outside of Clarksville, TX (Red River County) and I live in Plano, TX about 2 hours away. I'm concerned that a lawyer here wouldn't have the upperhand in the form of connections that others from that area would. Does this play an important factor?
I suggest that you hire an attorney with experience in the court where the case will be prosecuted. However, this is...
How can I prevent getting a DUI?
Single vehicle car accident. Police report indicates no alcohol but medical records show otherwise. First time offense. Afraid of being charged at a later time.
There is nothing that you can do to prevent it. If the police report says no alcohol, there is no reason to think that...
What are the likely outcomes of DWI while on felony probation?
My brother was arrested a couple years ago for harassment of public servant and assault of public servant, both 3rd degree felonies. Plead guilty and received 5yrs deferred (I think it was deferred, it might've been regular probation). He was arrested for DWI recently. The probation hearing is set, no bond at the moment and he's currently sitting in jail. What are the likely outcomes? Thank you
It really depends on what judge his felonies are with. With some judges, rehab would be a definite possibility. With...
Should I expect to be on probation if my DWI charge is reduced?
Im currently going through pre trial for DWI. I blew a .081. Decent field sobriety tape. I got stopped for failing to maintain a lane
IF it gets "reduced," it won't really be a reduction, it will be to ANOTHER class B misdemeanor called Obstruction of a...
Best plea deal option to avoid jail in DWI-2nd
I picked up a second DWI within 3 years.... Behind the wheel in a one car accident. I have no defense and just want the best plea deal I can get. In my first conviction, I paid a big fine with no probation and no interlock on my car. Is a similar deal possible on the second conviction? What about a fine and interlock only?I'm hearing that the laws have changed since my last dwi and even probation now requires some minimum jail time. Is there any option to avoid jail... even a minimum amount? I spent a night in jail on my arrest and I don't want to go back. I'm going to AA and haven't had a drink since the arrest. Thank you for any suggestions and advice.
While it is a brave thing to admit you have a problem, and an admirable thing, that doesn't mean your criminal record...
