Would I need to do an ALR hearing if I gave blood due to a warrant and it's below .08?
During waiting on my trial on my first DWI 2 months after I worked a 12 hour shift and after work me and a friend went to a bar to drink. Only drank 2 standard drinks. This was from 11 to 130 at night. I then dropped him at home and then started driving home. I realized I was falling asleep so I pulled over into a parking lot and went to sleep in park. Next thing I know it's 330 and I'm being awaken by a firefighter tapping on my car door who was checking if I was ok. A cop then came next and asked if I drank anything. I was honest and said 2. I then said A to Z, C to W, and 52 to 23 backwards correctly. He tried to get me to do the nystagmus test but I said no to field sobriety tests after my experience with the first one. He then said blood but I also declined. He then took me to jail and went to get a warrant. He didn't get me for a blood test till 8 in the morning though. My question is though since there's no video of me driving (the police car wasn't parked near mine so there's no dashcam) and since I'm waiting on a blood test that will be way below the limit will the ALR hearing suspend my license if waiting on a warranted blood test?
Yes, you need to request an ALR hearing because you refused to give a sample of your blood, when asked to do so by the...
Will I get in trouble for not checking "on task" in to see if I do a ua?
So I have this app called "on task" and it tells me if I need to do a UA and I have to check it Monday through Friday to see if I Need to test and I think I checked it late but when I checked the app it said I don't test. I still told my P.O. right away that I checked it late, how much trouble will I get in?

Can they charge this as a felony enhancement using the set aside out of state dui?
Got charged with 2nd dui in Texas, had a out of state DUI also, (3rd) but the conviction was set aside. The out of state set aside law states Set aside the judgment of guilt, dismiss the accusations or information and order that the person be released from all penalties and disabilities resulting from the conviction…
Can they? Sure they might try. However, if they try then your attorney will have a good argument to counter it, which...
I was arrested for DWI (misdemeanor) over two years ago. The DA never filed a formal complaint. Am I off the hook?
After arrest I bonded out and got an attorney. My attorney received the police report of the arrest but there has been no other correspondence form the court or the DA. I never received a trial date, never entered a plea of not guilty. Looking through court records there is no evidence the DA filed anything against me.
Since you have hired a lawyer, the best person to answer this question is them. They presumably have all of the facts...
Any chance this evidence can be suppressed? (DWI)
I was pulled over for speeding in denton county and the deputy conducted a field sobriety test. After he made me walk the line he asked me to follow his finger but i stopped the test as I remembered it was always better to refuse the FST. He immediately arrested me and took me to a hospital and worked on a warrant for a chemical test that took a ridiculously long time (about 4 1/2 hours in handcuffs). I've never been arrested before and I never knew about the implied consent laws and that he was supposed to give me the option to consent to the chemical test. It's been 6 months since that night and I finally got my arraignment papers and now i'm looking for a good lawyer and i'm wondering if the evidence can be suppressed?
There are several different points along the timeline of a DWI investigation that could pose possible opportunities for...
Will I be required to install an interlock device before going to my arraignment (first time DWI offender BAC >.15 )
I have my first arraignment date after 7 months of silence from the courts with a charge of a BAC > .15 which is really concerning. I know it's a class A misdemeanor and what that entails, but I just received a call from the Bail company stating I had to get an interlock device before going to the arraignment? The lady said if I don't the judge will throw me in jail on the spot (what a wonderful phonecall to receive while at work). any guidance would be appreciated and I'm in the process of finding a qualified attorney who specializes in chemical tests (my blood was pulled multiple hours after I was stopped, there is no way it was that high). All that I was waiting for was my arraignment papers. Thanks.

Received a B.W.I. when not even driving or even in boat.
When we came back to the dock a person was dropped off to back the truck. At this point i had been the boat driver all day consuming zero alcohol. Knowing it would take over an hour for the truck to be at the boat ramp I let a friend who had also not been drinking drive. He wanted to play around with it, well during this time period I had consumed two or three beers knowing i wouldn't be driving anymore. Truck gets to ramp, I jump in the water and pull boat on trailer. At this point, the driver had left since he wasnt needed. Then a game warden approached questioning the truck driver, (roughly 10-20 min conversation) saying it took him more than one try to back trailer and almost running me over. Driver gets DWI and i get BWI. no breath or blood taken. witnesses even say i didnt drive
Everyone is going to say the same thing, but you really need to speak with an experienced DWI/BWI attorney as soon as...
