Kingwood Law

Harris County, TX. Today, I found out that the court has ordered my son 6 days in jail, 32 hr community service, $200 fine and to install a interlock system on his car for a Dwi he got New Year's Eve. His car is totaled and we have no intention of fixing it. The battery was even stolen out if it last week. He lives on his own and does not drive now. He has to hitch rides with friends. How can the court enforce the installation if this device?

I have been on probation for 7 months and just cant deal with my PO officer and all the money they are taking from me. I had one violation on my Smart start and know have ordered me to get a sober link device at $180 a month plus 80 for smart start on top of all the fines. I would rather just sit it out in jail. Can an attorney help negotiate a sentence or is solely up to the judge? My first DWI was in 1991 at 17 years old. No other criminal record.
A lawyer can help you negotiate, especially NOW before you get into any real violations. They are likely to offer you...
