Pretrial Intervention for DWI and possession charge and false positive hair test
Im an currently on a double PTI for a DWI and PCS charge from May 2015. I have been completely sober for the duration of the program and I am 6 months in. They have me wearing a drug sweat patch which I have had on since May 2016 and for what I know they have always been negative. I cannot do a supervised UA due to a medical condition so they let me do the hair follicle with EtG, and I wanted to do it just to also prove I have abstained from any alcohol consumption. Well, to my terror and surprise the hair test showed a positive for marijuana. I have not touched any drugs since the night of my arrest, however, I have been exposed to it secondhand twice while working in a high rise condo and a government housing complex. I am terrified right now. I contacted my lawyer with no response, should I seek a new lawyer? This will ruin my life and the PO Im seeing right now is extremely strict. I would be an absolute idiot to use any illegal substance while wearing a drug sweat patch, and I promise Im not that dumb.....

Can I still still be charged with a dui after the fact even though the officer did a field sobriety test and I wasn't arrested?
I rear ended someone and I was given a field sobriety test. The officer said he wasn't going to arrest me, but that I should use this as a wake up call. (Which I am, I was leaving a volatile situation and had beer spilled on me in the confrontation/fight. Which was the only reason I was driving in the first place). I talked to the insurance claims adjuster and she said the other party thought I had been arrested and charged. The other party had no injuries and was able to drive away. I'm just concerned that the other party may try to press the issue just to do it. I'm fully insured and am able to pay for the damages.
The decision to file criminal charges is up to the officer who arrived at the scene of your accident and investigated...

Would a prosecutor drop a DWI charge and instead file reckless driving charges as part of a plea agreement in Harris County?
I was involved in a wreck and I ended up being arrested for DWI. My blood was taken almost 4 hours later and it came back over the limit. I think my BAC rose while in custody because I had just drank a little while before the wreck. Would a prosecutor ever consider dropping a DWI charge and filing new reckless driving charges for a first time offender as part of a plea agreement?
You need to hire a criminal attorney asap. This is something you need to discuss with an attorney in private. There are...
A very good friend of mine was arrested last night for DWI. He has been charged with Intoxicated Assault with a vehicle/serious
A very good friend of mine was arrested last night for DWI. He has been charged with Intoxicated Assault with a vehicle/serious bodily injury. Aside from this, he is here from Venezuela on a tourist visa. Phone calls to various bail bond companies today have yielded a variety of answers and information. The main thing I would like to know is if he will be deported at some point, be it now or after his case has been handled. We were advised this evening by one bail bond company to NOT bail him out because this would send him to ICE immediately. Please offer a little advice.
First off, I'm sorry this has happened to you. It's always hard when a friend or loved one is in trouble and you get...
