What do I do
I was arrested for reckless driving. I was not read my rights until 7:00am the next morning. After spending the night in jail. I still don't have any paper work on it. No copy of the ticket. Nothing. I don't know what to do
You should contact a local attorney. You can also ask family to inquire into your bond, and see about getting you out....
I got a DWI on 05/04/2013 and havent heard a single thing or gotten any paperwork from the court, what might be the problem?
I did not take a breath test, I told the officers that I was falling asleep at the wheel (which i was) i just refused the breath test so they arrested me. I was drinking the night before but I slept some hours before I got in the car. I was given a blood test about 2-3 hrs after I was arrested. This was 05/04/2013 and it is now 02/04/2014 and I havent heard anything. Is there a place online where I could look to see what the hold up is?
It is possible that the laboratory testing the blood is behind and has not tested/sent the results of testing to the...
My son is currently on parole and was arrested for a DWI yesterday morning.
Yes my son was arrested in Travis County. His bond was set at $2,000.00 so I did bond him out yesterday so he could continue to work and continue with school. He currently works at a recovery place in Austin and attends a local college. He did not breathe or give blood. He was released from prison in March of this year and has been meeting all the terms of his parole until this incident. He was in prison for robbery. Does he need an attorney for the parole hearing also? This is his 1st DWI with no prior history of dui or dwi. He does however have possesion charges from when he was a minor.
Be aware that he will likely get a blue warrant issued - a parole warrant for which there is no bond. If that happens,...
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...
Charged with Evading and DWI in Texas.
I have been offered a Plea Bargain. The DA will lower to a State Jail Felony and I spend 30 days in Jail and Probation etc. , with Deferred Adjudication. But, I must plead guilty to DWI. My career could be at risk. I read that in other states if you were so drunk while driving that you did not realize that you were being pursued, you cannot be convicted of the offense. That was my circumstance. Although you cannot be charged with this offense if you were so intoxicated that you could not form the intent to evade, but will be charged with DWI. Well, I'm going to be charged anyway if I take Plea, AND have to have the Class A Misdemeanor of "Attempting to Evade" & punishments & consequences that go along with it. So is being intoxicated Valid Defense in the state of TX ?
If you are at this stage in your case, you must have an attorney and that person is the best position to advise you on...
