Just to start, I don't live in Texas but I am moving to Austin. I was visiting and hanging with some friends, one of which was 19 years old. I had a beer (I'm 21). I was careless and totally forgot that he was not 21. I gave him one sip of beer. Later, he took the cup without asking and took another sip. He was not drunk and that was it. Later that night, he drove home in his vehicle. I realized what I did was a misdemeanor. It was a careless mistake. I do have a personal conviction to obey the law. Am I obligated by law to report this and turn myself in? I know I can get away with it, but I don't want to break another law by keeping this secret. Also, am I obligated to report my 19 year old friend, who drove after having a few sips of alcohol?
No. There is no obligation to report something of this nature. Your desire to be a law-abiding citizen is impressive,...
Can a judge order a defendant facing a DWI to divuldge his past history of attending treatment centers ?
Can I choose not to provide my treatment history to the courts as I feel it would be devistating to my case. I am facing one of the toughest and possibly most corrupt systems in the state of Texas ( Willianson Cty.) They by reputation and historical facts are extremely harsh when it comes to convicting and sentanceing of DWI offenders (even 1st timers).
A Judge cannot order you to breach your 5th Amendment right to self-incrimination before guilt is assessed. However,...
I have been charged with DUI and am applying for pre trial intervention. Do I have to disclose all treatment centers i have been
they do not specificaly request this info but my attorney has asked me to go ahead and include all of the treatment centers as well as the dates. Do prosecutors and courts typically have the time and resources to research my history and discover all of the treatment centers I have attended? I ask this because I feel if they are aware of this information they will reject me from the program with the feeling that I need more stringent rules of probation even though I am 44yr old male and do not have a criminal record of any kind not even a missdamenor
You have been charged with DWI, not DUI. DUI is for people under 21. If your attorney told you to include the...

Fortunately, no one was hurt. There were damages to the rental car and to the trailer of a city truck I hit. The Enterprise rental was for business use (rented on my business account) and I declined the additional rental car coverage. My employer's insurance would normally serve as primary. I'd rather my employer did not learn about my DUI arrest and am concerned that using my employer's insurance would trigger some sort of notification back to my employer. I rented the car on a Citi Aadvantage credit card that has primary rental insurance for the rental vehicle, but it would not cover the other vehicle I don't believe. And I also have personal auto insurance with AllState (Gold Coverage) w liability coverage. How can I avoid my employer from learning of my arrest
Use your auto insurance. Normally that's what's going to cover you anyway. Get a good DUI lawyer to get yourself the...
