Admitting to drinking to cop during DWI stop??? Open container found at 2:00 am in vehicle. Proof beyond reasonable doubt.
If you are pulled over and investigated for DWI and the cop asks about how much you had to drink and you first respond "a couple" then he asks again and you respond "enough or quite a bit" how hard will it be for the prosecution to prove beyond reasonable doubt you are intoxicated? Cop did not ask when you had your first drink, he did not ask when you had your last drink, he did not ask if you had eaten, He did not ask if you had slept since last drink, He did not ask what kind of bevarages were consumed. There was no breath test nor field sobriety test as they were declined. Will the State be able to prove beyond reasonable doubt, solely based on the above information, intoxication. How will a good attorney be able to help with this?
Texas DAs are successful in prosecuting DWI every day without this information. In fact, it would have been very...
DWI Arrest in Texas – How does probable cause work?
It seems like an officer can pull you over for something as small as drifting onto a lane marker. If that’s the case, how do DWI’s get dismissed? Does the judge decide? Does the judge look at video or the report to make their decision? I've also read that many DWI cases have been dismissed because of probable cause, due to a motion to suppress. How does this work? I've done a lot of reading and I know that many DWI’s are challenged on the officer’s probable cause for the initial traffic stop. From what I've read, it seems that probable cause can be something as simple as drifting onto (not even across) the lane marker, or an unsafe lane change. In my case, I exited the freeway and went across the lanes to the far right. Thanks in advance for your time.
"Probable cause" is pretty much in the eye of the beholder. Cops don't think that the standard is very high, and many...
State of Texas County Jurisdiction Law - DWI Charge
This is the case... I was traveling on and exited an interstate in XYZ County. At that time XYZ sherriffs deputy stated that I made an unsafe lane change and he activated his video camera. XYZ sherriffs deputy continued to follow me 2.5 miles with camera on claiming various traffic violations such as drifting on to the white line (not crossing it), abrupt stops at stop signs (these alleged traffic violations are not seen on video). The XYZ county sherrifs deputy continued to follow ACROSS the county line into ABC County. Once into ABC County, XYZ sherriffs deputy continued to follow me for approximately 3/4 of a mile into a residential neighborhood through three stop sighns and intersections and turned on his lights at the third intersection at which time I promptly pulled over. The deputy walked up to the truck saw open container and asked me to get out of the vehicle and if I know why he pulled me over, I told him I didn't and he never provided an answer. The officer then requested me to do field sobriety, I refused and he arrested me. I was taken from ABC County and booked in XYZ County by XYZ Sherriffs Deputy. There was never an ABC County sherriffs deputy present. At XYZ County I refused the breathalyzer as well. Also, the XYZ deputy noted on his report that the arrest was in XYZ County. Clearly the arrest was in ABC County. What bering will this have? How does jurisdiction work and where is hot pursuit considered? What are the laws? Was there probable cause?
More information is required, because you don't say what the offense was. It appears that DWI is being alleged, but not...
Dwi and citizenship interview.
Hello I have a dwi in texas. Dwi is about 16 years old. Simple dwi. Received my green card 6 years ago. Citizenship interview next week. Will there be any issues given the political climate we are in now.
If you otherwise qualify for citizenship, then there shouldn't be any, unless of course, you are from one of the "...
What should I do (if anything) about my weird DWI situation?
I was involved in a single car accident while driving intoxicated almost a year ago. Taken to the hospital in an ambulance, released to my parents several hours later. My mom said there wasn't a police officer waiting outside my room and the hospital just discharged me. Apparently while unconscious police took my drivers license and got a warrant for my blood. I didn't get any paperwork about license suspension. Receive a 6 month license suspension in the mail for "refusal". There isn't an arrest warrant yet. I check online almost every day because I'm willing to do a walk-though if necessary. But now that's been almost a year, I'm wondering if they're just so over loaded with cases they haven't gotten to it. If two years go by am I clear due to statute of limitations? I never went to jail, never got arraigned, haven't received anything else in the mail of court notice to appear.
I agree that's a weird situation. Go online to the site I will post for you to determine whether your DL has been...
What does it mean if I was on pre trial probabtion for felony dwi and a mtr and the dwi case was dismissed?
I was on probabtion for a felony dwi and an mtr, both on which I am out on bond. I went to my probabtion appointment Monday and was told that the dwi case was being dismissed and closed out but my mtr case was still active. My questions are 1. Does this mean the courts are dropping the charges and I no longer have to worry about the dwi. ( I was told that I no longer had to report for probabtion and that I just needed to wait for the court date for the mtr.) He said it was a no action status on the dwi. And 2.) If in fact the dwi was dismissed do I have to worry about the mtr or will that be dismissed as well? I wanted to make sure I understood what he said correctly...I took it as the dwi was being dismissed and I just have to deal with an mtr. I was told they have no evidence for the dwi, that the police report and blood test were missing and could not be located. This happened over a year and a half ago and the courts are always resetting so I'm assuming that is why they are dismissing it.
I can give you the general law that once a case has been dismissed and the bond discharged, you are under no further...
Who do you go to when there is a dwi on your driving record that was not me.
I recently renewed my insurance to find out that I had a dwi that shows up on my driving record. I have never had a dwi and was never arrested for this. Not understanding how my insurance pulls it up but does not show on my court files.
