I'm 47, no prior criminal history at all. Is Pretrial Diversion realistic in Harrison County, Texas? Kenda Culpepper current DA
It is my understanding that Mike Anderson got rid of DIVERT & was considering Pre Trail Diversion. I am a highly respected female professional and am highly concerned about my reputation. I am typically a law abiding, moral, religious, & ethical. I have 2 elementary age children who know nothing about my offense. I honestly was not aware I was even possibly intoxicated when I got behind the wheel and that is the truth. I face my Arrangement next month and am wondering how likely, even though my alcohol blood level was elevated, to be considered for Pre Trial Diversion or even reduced to reckless driving. I am beyond remorseful, so much I've told no one and haven't even had 1 drink and gotten behind the wheel of a car since arrested. That was 10 months ago. Thanks for any feedback!
Hire a good attorney that offices in that county. If you don't know anybody that lives there you can talk to some local...
I have an in home breathalyzer DWI2nd I didn't blow in it for 4 days. Will I be revoked and if so how much jail time can I get ?
I have to breath in it 3 times a day, last month I missed 4, PO said to just be careful not to miss anymore. This month my brother whom I was living with wouldn't let me in the house, due to a disagreement which the Rockwall PD have a record of to get my machine. He kept saying he would meet me at his house but wouldn't show or answer phone calls. I finally got it back and there are 15 misses . What are my chances of going to jail and if so , how much jail time ?
You did not ssy what your original sentence was, so I cannot answer your question. Doeak to an experienced criminal...
Why was bail set only 1200 for 2nd dwi? 750 for failure to stop render aid. I don't understand, everyone else 8000
They set my bail at 1000. it so low because they did not witness Me driving? Also refused all tests. No blood, no breath, no sobriety test. Also no damage to my vehicle or other vehicle that i could see. Was arrested more then 1 hour after other party alleged i hit them outside a resturant. Arrested in my car while parked. Do i have a good chance of beating this? Been arrested many times in this county
I have no idea why your bail was set that way. Magistrates typically follow a bond schedule unless the filing agency...
I have joint custody with my son's father but he has recently been charged with DUI, can I change visitation?
He is an alcoholic, that is why I left him. I had sole custody until Jan 2013. We were NEVER married. He and I agreed to joint in January and he pays me 1500 a month. He sees him every other weekend. He went to jail on DUI 3 weeks ago and I just dont feel comfortable having my baby who JUST turned 3 yrs old ride with him. Can I ask the judge to make him go to AA and ask that my son not ride in car with him? He is an angry and violent drunk. Thanks for any help u can give me :)
In order to modify your order, you must have a material and substantial change. If he has not been convicted of the...

I got a DUI when I was a young 25 year old idiot. Now I am 46 and have never been in trouble since that incident 21 yrs ago.
Here's where it gets bad. Leaving dinner w/ friend and driving home after 3 glasses of wine, coming to stop light to turn, truck in front that I thought was turning, adjusted my speed, answered text, and smashed into the back of the truck that did not turn. Officer arrived to take report, asked it I had been drinking and I said yes. I was in shock and having an after the fact panic attack. He asked me to do the field test which I could not. He ask me if I would submit to blood test and I said yes. Then I was arrested and spent the night in jail which scared the crap out of me. That is a horrible place! Now they are charging me w/ 2nd DUI. If that is not bad enough, I am a family law paralegal and know nothing about this side. I am so humiliated and apparently still an idiot. Advice?
The first thing is to find an experienced DWI lawyer. As a paralegal, you have some advantage in contacting and talking...
DWI and pretrial deversion
My friend was pulled over for a DWI, did not pass the field sobriety test but did not take the field alcohol test or give blood so the only evidence is the video tape. No prior convictions or arrests. What are the chances of the DA dropping the case or having pre-trial diversion?
Where did this incident occur? Some jurisdictions have a first time offender or pre-trial diversion progarm for DUI/...
