Just received letter in mail order to rescind notice of suspension, does that mean I passed my blood test?
Dwi
Quite possible. Recall there are several elements that must be proven in order for the administrative law judge to...
What are the chances that my probation will be revoked?
In 2011 I was put on one year probation for a class b misdemeanor. I couldn't pay the fees and didn't have transportation at the time (now I wish I would have just sat out the 90 days in jail) anyway I just kind of set it on the back burner stupid I know and they filed a motion to revoke in August of 2012, it is now Feb of 2014 and I turned myself in last night and bonded out today. It's not that I was really "running" as I haven't moved, I've lived at the same address for almost 7 years, I am trying to get this all taken care of and behind me. What are the chances that they will revoke and I will go to jail... I have a good job I don't want to loose and 2 kids (7 years and 2 months) I can pay all my fees now... What are the chances they will revoke my probation?
That question is best answered by a local attorney. I practice in some counties where they would give you some jail...
In Texas can I get a Class A Misdemeanor expunged if I served probation and the case was disposed?
In 1994 at the age of 19 I was arrested for DWI. The case was dropped to a Class A Misdemeanor and I pleaded Nollo Contendre and served one year probation. The staus on my record shows that the case was disposed/CSCD. Can this case be expunged or do I have to file for non-disclosure?
Hmm. DWI is currently a class B misdemeanor and it was at the time of your arrest. Class A is a more serious charge....
Can a DWI dismissal have any impact on the ALR hearing?
My DWI case has been dismissed prior to my ALR hearing. Is the dismissal relevant at all to the ALR hearing?
These are separate proceedings, so dismissal on one case does not mean automatic dismissal on the other. However, the...
Charged with DWI AND ACCIDENT I was not driving.
Last weekend I went out drinking with a friend. She was driving her car. On the way home she hit another car. I was threatened by the people we hit and fled. I was charged with the dwi and accident and she was not even asked for her license. She is now ignoring me. Will she be forced to go to court to say she was driving? Is this common?
This is not common, but I have seen it happen. At trial, the State will attempt to prove that you were driving. The...
Should I find a new attorney for my DWI case?
I received a dwi in June 2017. My case has been reset 3 times and I've yet to speak to my attorney directly. I paid the initial 1500 retainer fee after doing the best research I could online. I have a theft charge from 2002 that I received deferred adjudication and a theft by check that was dismissed in 2005. I refused the breathalyzer test. Each time I speak with the legal aide she explains the process and says the attorney will reach me closer to the reset date and is busy in trial. They have the discovery in office but I'm not sure what is recommended. Should I seek new counsel or does this seem standard for this situation?
Lawyers do not like to knock others when we really don't know all the details. But, I will say that IF the lawyer has...
How can I receive a dui when cop rufuses me a breathlizer?
Was the DD this night for a buddy. I got pulled over and asked if I had been drinking. I told the cop I had one beer and it was an hour before driving. He sobriety tested me and I passed everything but gave me a dui. So I asked for a breathlizer and got denied. Do I have a valid chance of getting the dui dismissed?
There is always a chance for getting a DWI dismissed, but not solely on the basis of not being provided a breathalyzer....
