Minor DUI, Passed Sobriety test, refused breathalyzer, could not get warrant for blood work, did admit to one beer, what now?
Was heading down HWY 60 and missed our turn and try to make it, hitting a yield sign in the process. Pulled over to try and pull it from underneath the car, as we are in the parking lot, a campus police officer pulls up (we are at least 5 miles from campus so we did not know what he was doing on this side of town) calls in Canyon PD and leaves. Back of truck is loaded with beer we said was not ours. Makes me take a sobriety test, places me in handcuffs and puts me in back of the car. Friend over hears the officers talking stating that I had basically passed the test. I refused the breathalyzer, then they tried to get a warrant for blood work and I guess failed cause I was bailed out of jail that night. Am I able to have any kind of argument in court? Do they have any "real" evidence?
Is this an "absolute sobriety" case or a DUI case? Real evidence: 1 - You hit a sign. 2 - You admitted to having...
I was charged with a DUI minor and was currently doing differed disposition for the charge. While doing the differed I was charged with an MIP. My friend was doing differed for a Public Intoxication and was also charged with a MIP during his probation as well. I am aware both of us will receive the penalty for both currently. Now my question is with both of these charges on our record, will it be possible to get both charges expunged when we turn 21 as is the case if we were to just have one on our record. I have tried to look at Texas expungement laws and have been feeble in my finds. Any help on this topic would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Could I be revoked on straight felony probation for a dwi? With I am what process will I face and can I be reinstated??
I have 4 years left on straight felony probation for a 3rd degree felony of impeding breathe. I have completed a year with no violations I am caught up on fines and community service pretty much. I got a d.w.i. the other day and bonded out. I haven't told my p.o. yet and debating to tell her or just let her find out to give myself time. I been told to get me an attorney but, I read here that they have 20 days to decide on a motion or I to make a deal with prosecutors with I am locked up. I opted for a court appointed lawyer I really want to continue my probation. This is my first dwi in Texas. I just really need some solid advice. Should I tell my p.o.? I need time to situate things.

This was my first conviction, later after being convicted, it was necessary that I move to Texas. I consulted with my lawyer and she stated that it was ok. My concern is that she negotiated a deal with the judge to allow me to move so as I get a felony in return. Is this possible? Yes, I have asked my lawyer before and she did sate that the charge was going to be a misdemeanor but this was before the move. After she was paid she never returned any correspondence, therefor I am not 100% sure if this could result in a felony charge. Any additional info would be much appreciated.
Generally, a felony is defined as a crime punishable by imprisonment in excess of one year. In a case like yours, you...
