Who has to collect your hair for a hair follicle test?
Unfortunately I caught a case in a little small country town The DA requested a hair follicle test. I agree, go to my probation office. I go into the bathroom with some country guy in dirty clothes I've never met for him to collect my hair. He literally says "Well, I've never done this so when in doubt just read the directions." Looking confused he read them, cut my hair and sealed the bag. Shouldn't this collection been done by someone qualified? Do I have the right for a retest?
The person who collects the hair for a hair follicle test will be someone who works for the government. You should...
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?
Poor communication between you and attorney. Nothing you said sounds particularly unusual-just not the best...
Dwi and citizenship interview.
Hello I have a dwi in texas. Dwi is about 16 years old. Simple dwi. Received my green card 6 years ago. Citizenship interview next week. Will there be any issues given the political climate we are in now.
If you otherwise qualify for citizenship, then there shouldn't be any, unless of course, you are from one of the "...
What should I do (if anything) about my weird DWI situation?
I was involved in a single car accident while driving intoxicated almost a year ago. Taken to the hospital in an ambulance, released to my parents several hours later. My mom said there wasn't a police officer waiting outside my room and the hospital just discharged me. Apparently while unconscious police took my drivers license and got a warrant for my blood. I didn't get any paperwork about license suspension. Receive a 6 month license suspension in the mail for "refusal". There isn't an arrest warrant yet. I check online almost every day because I'm willing to do a walk-though if necessary. But now that's been almost a year, I'm wondering if they're just so over loaded with cases they haven't gotten to it. If two years go by am I clear due to statute of limitations? I never went to jail, never got arraigned, haven't received anything else in the mail of court notice to appear.
I agree that's a weird situation. Go online to the site I will post for you to determine whether your DL has been...
What does it mean if I was on pre trial probabtion for felony dwi and a mtr and the dwi case was dismissed?
I was on probabtion for a felony dwi and an mtr, both on which I am out on bond. I went to my probabtion appointment Monday and was told that the dwi case was being dismissed and closed out but my mtr case was still active. My questions are 1. Does this mean the courts are dropping the charges and I no longer have to worry about the dwi. ( I was told that I no longer had to report for probabtion and that I just needed to wait for the court date for the mtr.) He said it was a no action status on the dwi. And 2.) If in fact the dwi was dismissed do I have to worry about the mtr or will that be dismissed as well? I wanted to make sure I understood what he said correctly...I took it as the dwi was being dismissed and I just have to deal with an mtr. I was told they have no evidence for the dwi, that the police report and blood test were missing and could not be located. This happened over a year and a half ago and the courts are always resetting so I'm assuming that is why they are dismissing it.
I can give you the general law that once a case has been dismissed and the bond discharged, you are under no further...
Who do you go to when there is a dwi on your driving record that was not me.
I recently renewed my insurance to find out that I had a dwi that shows up on my driving record. I have never had a dwi and was never arrested for this. Not understanding how my insurance pulls it up but does not show on my court files.
Find out the source of the record so you can dispute it
Can we sue an ambulance company and the drunk driver?
On the way to the hospital a drunk drive struck the ambulance. My husband was not strapped down properly and he flew off the gurnee, hit the metal diamond plate and then crunched up in the floor. He received a concussion.
You could possibly sue both, but the drunk driver is the better defendant. If the drunk driver has insurance, you...
