The state has three years from the date of offense to get an indictment. If they don't, then you cannot be prosecuted...
Told by my attorney, " must waive right of appeal to get probation instead of TDC"
In November of 2005 I was arrested for DWI in Onalaska, Tx. Appeared on assigned court date and was informed by the judge that case was before Grand Jury pending possible felony indictment. Having had no dealings with the "felony" side of the law, I hired a local attorney that afternoon. He assured my wife and I that all would be well and I "would not" go to prison. There was no more contact initiated by he or his office until two days before the court date exactly 1 yr. later. Calls and inquiries were sometimes answered, sometimes not. I should have known then. On the court date I was informed by my attorney that my plea would be guilty, and in order to receive probation that I must waive my right to appeal. I feel as if I let myself get sold down the river. What do you make of this?
If you have already pled then, it's 'water under the bridge', to use your analogy. Seriously, I can't second-guess your...

Poor communication between you and attorney. Nothing you said sounds particularly unusual-just not the best...

I can not afford a lawyer so I'm very worried . Also I'm out on a 15000. dollar bond what does it mean when they say you can't go anywhere while your on bond ? Do I have to pay the whole 15000. Or how does that work? I have not been arrested or in trouble for 5 years.Why am I going to probation before seeing the judge.Also while I was in jail an officer brought me a couple tickets 1 being an open cont.,but I did not have any
You will need to hire a lawyer. If you made a $15,000 bond, it is highly unlikely that any judge will appoint you a...
What's the next steps to take/who to talk to, to resolve this issue? How long should this take?
Was arrested for DWI in Texas by DPS while repairing vehicle on side of road 10/2012. Confiscated license at time of arrest. Posted bond. Probation was ordered 11/2012. As of 8/2013 there has been no indictment. State sent a letter this month (8/2013) stating license was rescinded. CSO at probation office was asked what could be done about it. CSO stated "We'll just have to wait and see what happens."
I am confused. Did you plead guilty in 11/2012? How was "probation ordered"? You can only be on probation for this DWI...

The parole hold seems to be the big issue as far as his release. The judge in the court that his DWI case lands in will...
