Can I get this public intoxication ticket dismissed in court?
I admittedly was drunk when I hitched a ride with my friend to another friend's place where I would reside for the night. We were following behind the aforementioned friend where my driver ran a red light. Shortly after we were pulled over (I in the passenger seat) about 3 blocks from our destination. My friend was asked a series of questions and then arrested for running a red light and "being rude to the officer". I was communicating with the officer and she told me that I may walk to my friend's place but that changed when her lieutenant arrived. I was given a field sobriety test and then arrested. I had given the officer the address of my friend's house a couple of times letting her know the proximity of the destination but it was to no avail. Neither of us were read our rights. Help?

Attorney recommends to plea for 1st dwi
My sister got a dwi 1st a little over a year from now. Her attorney she hired told her she needs to plea bargain because she was swaying in her video. She asked to see it and he told her he hasn't gotten a copy though. How did he see it then? He told her if she doesn't plea she needs to take it to trial. Why won't he show her tape? Why is he telling her to plea bargain a conviction without herself seeing it? Is it legal to do that after a year in pretrial? # 1st dwi. Refused breath and blood test? Keys were in car but she was outside the car with the keys in ignition with the door open. I don't know what to do but he has no interest in her case. If I fire him she lost 3000 dollars. Advice please
To secure the nature of the prosecutor investigation, the video was likely shown to the defense attorney as required,...
When does a DWI arrest show up on a background check?
A couple of weeks ago, I was arrested for as DWI in Dallas County. My first court date is the last week of January. My plan is to start looking for a new job after the New Year. If get a job offer from a company in February or March (or even a couple of months after), will the arrest show up on a background check? Or does the case need to be settled before it shows up on a background check? Best regards. Dan

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...
