I had a DWI first offense misdemeanor conviction four years ago in Texas.
If the statute of limitations expires on a first offense dwi in texas, can you eventually have it expunged? I was much younger, and albeit naive at the time that all of this happened. So I guess my question is whether I can eventually sometime in my life have this charged removed, or if its just going to stick with me forever preventing me from getting a job again.
You are stuck with it on your record forever. Sorry to break it to you. However, a dwi conviction doesn't mean you...

How long will it take for the dps to suspend my license after convicted of dwi?
Final court date was early January. I was 18 when it happened. I know my license was supoused to be suspended for a year. I have heard nothing from the dps or courts up to this point and everything i can check tells me i still have a valid license. Advise on how to go forward?
Be quiet. Say nothing. Hope that it fell through after this much time, but know that you need to keep checking. Also,...
Can they prosecute a DWI case without the Police Vidio?
I was charged with DWI on December 2014. Finally I had hearing. They presented me with a very high blood alcohol level. They also told me that the the Camera was not working at the time of arrest. Knowing that i was not really that drunk, can they prosecute me W/O the Video?
There have been DWI prosecutions long before the existence of police dash cams.
How do I get proof that I was not charged for a DUI?
on an armed forces base and detained while underage drinking(at the time) and dui. I however, did not go to trial or courts martial. Is there a way to get any sort of proof that I was just detained and not charged? I should add, I was a part of the military and stationed on said base at the time of the incident.
I can't think of one. If an employer would try to look, nothing should show up. Your local police agencies may find a...
Will the DWI arrest be included in the non-disclosure order after completing a deferred sentence for obstruction of highway?
I am likely to receive an offer to reduce a DWI charge to obstruction of highway with deferred adjudication, and will need to make the decision I assume all face between accepting the offer and taking my case to trial. However, I wanted to confirm that upon successful completion of the probation term and the passage of the two-year waiting period, I can file for an order of non-disclosure that will seal both the DWI arrest and the sentence on the obstruction charge. Since the deferred was not granted on the DWI charge (as is not allowed), but instead the second obstruction charge, does that make the record of the DWI arrest itself ineligible for inclusion in the order of non-disclosure? Thank you.
This is squarely in the realm of legal advice, and we cannot give you legal advice without fully understanding the...
In mid-2012, I received a conviction for DUI. My license, as per the court, was suspended for 1 year. DPS never received notice of the conviction, and my license never showed up as suspended. Three years later now, I am wondering about the surcharge which also wasn't assessed. The Texas statute says: Sec. 708.102(b) Each year the department shall assess a surcharge on the license of each person who during the preceding 36-month period has been finally convicted of an offense relating to the operating of a motor vehicle while intoxicated. Sec. 708.102(d)A surcharge under this section for the same conviction may not be assessed in more than three years. Will the surcharge automatically expire this year, so that it can never be assessed as it passed out of the three year time frame?
Check your license and all the applicable surcharges and other actions on DPS website. It will tell you what is...
