Should I expect to be on probation if my DWI charge is reduced?
Im currently going through pre trial for DWI. I blew a .081. Decent field sobriety tape. I got stopped for failing to maintain a lane
IF it gets "reduced," it won't really be a reduction, it will be to ANOTHER class B misdemeanor called Obstruction of a...
Can a DWI arrest be turned into a DUI case?
I got arrested for driving while intoxicated (DWI) and unfortunately consented to a blood test. The arrest was made because the officer thought I had been drinking but that is not the case. I am pretty sure they will find no alcohol in my blood sample. However, I think my impairment was the result of a prescription drug I took for anxiety. I had not taken it in a while so the effects were more pronounced than usual. I think that the blood test may reveal that I took the pill earlier in the day (5 hours prior to the arrest). Can the DWI arrest be turned into a DUI case? I ask because the arrest paperwork I got focuses only on blood alcohol content rather than something more generic such as DWI and/or DUI. I did not mention or disclose at any moment I had taken the anxiety medication.
There are no DUIs in Texas. DWIs encompass all intoxicatingly elements beyond alcohol such as prescription drugs and...
How long do dwi fines stay valid i guess is the question. It was a manditory $3000.00 for anyone guilty of a dwi in Austin.
Received a dwi in Austin, TX. right about march of 08 and still owe fees from fines that were incurred from charge, now I live in Fl. and am wondering if the charges that i in part still owe will they ever expire or continue to haunt me till i die??? Or pay them of course...
Is this for the criminal fines or surcharges? You cannot file bankruptcy to avoid criminal penalties. On the other...
Will a past dwi conviction make me unable to get a speech therapist license in Texas.
I was convicted of a dwi in 10/2014. The incident happened 11/2013. However I would like to get my liscence to become a speech therapist. The research I have done says that any conviction greater than a traffic ticket will be looked at a case by case situation. Before I pursue this path should I speak to a lawyer.
It would be better to speak with someone in the agency that regulates the speech therapy profession. Right now I think...
Do I need to hire an attorney for my first DWI prior to my first Court appearance? What are the steps I need to take?
I was arrested in Austin for a DWI. The arresting officer gave me my field sobriety tests multiple times before breathalyzing me. I refused the breathalyzer and was taken to jail for blood. I spent just under 20 hours in jail and still have yet to receive the results from my blood test. Should I plead not guilty?
Because you are obviously ignorant of how the criminal justice system works, you definitely need to at least talk to a...
Does a DWI second offense arrest constitute a crime involving moral turpitude?
I'm applying for an Austin Municipal job requiring state certification. I have the certification but the application includes a disqualifying question asking if the applicant is "currently charged with, or have you had a conviction for or a misdemeanor offense involving moral turpitude within the last ten (10) years of the application deadline date?" If I am currently charged with a DWI second offense (first was in Arizona in 2001) can I honestly answer no to that question? Does a DWI second offense constitute a crime involving moral turpitude?
Generally, a crime of moral turpitude involves some sort of dishonesty, such as theft, obstructing justice, robbery,...
I have a pending DUI and had two DUI priors dismissed so this will be my first DUI conviction.
I am being told the DA is holding my dismissals against me. How is a dismissal being held against me? Even with a criminal history, none of which are alcohol related and now I am being told they want me to do a lot of jail time. How is this right on a first conviction DUI
Pretty much they are thinking that you just got lucky and got away with the cases which were dismissed. It's a bunch...
