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...
Can a DWI arrest be turned into a DUI case?
I got arrested for driving while intoxicated (DWI) and unfortunately consented to a blood test. The arrest was made because the officer thought I had been drinking but that is not the case. I am pretty sure they will find no alcohol in my blood sample. However, I think my impairment was the result of a prescription drug I took for anxiety. I had not taken it in a while so the effects were more pronounced than usual. I think that the blood test may reveal that I took the pill earlier in the day (5 hours prior to the arrest). Can the DWI arrest be turned into a DUI case? I ask because the arrest paperwork I got focuses only on blood alcohol content rather than something more generic such as DWI and/or DUI. I did not mention or disclose at any moment I had taken the anxiety medication.
There are no DUIs in Texas. DWIs encompass all intoxicatingly elements beyond alcohol such as prescription drugs and...
Charged with Evading and DWI in Texas.
I have been offered a Plea Bargain. The DA will lower to a State Jail Felony and I spend 30 days in Jail and Probation etc. , with Deferred Adjudication. But, I must plead guilty to DWI. My career could be at risk. I read that in other states if you were so drunk while driving that you did not realize that you were being pursued, you cannot be convicted of the offense. That was my circumstance. Although you cannot be charged with this offense if you were so intoxicated that you could not form the intent to evade, but will be charged with DWI. Well, I'm going to be charged anyway if I take Plea, AND have to have the Class A Misdemeanor of "Attempting to Evade" & punishments & consequences that go along with it. So is being intoxicated Valid Defense in the state of TX ?
If you are at this stage in your case, you must have an attorney and that person is the best position to advise you on...
What are my chances of no prison on a child endangerment while driving/cops added DUI. I've never been in trouble before
I had my three kids with me and had a seizure at the wheel. My arresting officers included in report I was on drugs. I did admit to doing Meth the day before. I have had 2 pnc's first offer was prison now the second is a year in rehab and 4 years probation on top of several classes. I dont know what to do don't I still get one more offer. No drugs were on me or in my vehicle. I admitted to using the drug. I know it doesn't matter but I smoked very very little I felt very normal I had slept all that rest of the night and ate. I have been having black outs/seizure since my young teen yrs I'm now 30. I am currently involved in a child protective case and I do classes regularly for almost everything random drug testing. I really don't wanna have to leave town and be apart from my kids.
While I believe that I understand what you are asking, the terms you are using are not the ones used in Texas law. It...
Is it legal for a police officer to report DWI to a university?
My boyfriend was recently dismissed from his medical school based on a tip from someone reporting his DWI. Upon reviewing the DWI video, the officer clearly tells my boyfriend that he is going to personally call his medical school and tell them about it because he was being uncooperative with a blood draw. His medical school sat on this information and then blindsided him 8 months later as a reason for dismissal. They even alluded to having knowledge about things that happened in the hospital based on what the officer told them. Are events that happened in the ER considered health protected information? Does this apply to police officers? My boyfriend has not been convicted of anything at this point. It's a shame for him to be 250 k in the hole when he has since dealt with his addiction
You may be asking the wrong people about your boyfriends case. It may fall under a civil action for defamation or a...
