My boyfriend is in jail for DUI in a federal prison for 6 months (because it occured on federal property)
He was on probation for a felony charge in the state of texas and received 10 years probation. He has an arrest warrant issued and will be getting out of prison soon for the federal charges. Will he go straight to county for violating his probation since there is an open warrant? Will he get out of prison and then have to appear in court for his probation violation hearing? The hearing has been set for 2 weeks after his date of release from prison. Might the state judge reinstate his probation since he already served time for another offense?
An outstanding warrant means that he is subject of immediate transfer to the state county officials on that charge. He...

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....
