What are the chances that my probation will be revoked?
In 2011 I was put on one year probation for a class b misdemeanor. I couldn't pay the fees and didn't have transportation at the time (now I wish I would have just sat out the 90 days in jail) anyway I just kind of set it on the back burner stupid I know and they filed a motion to revoke in August of 2012, it is now Feb of 2014 and I turned myself in last night and bonded out today. It's not that I was really "running" as I haven't moved, I've lived at the same address for almost 7 years, I am trying to get this all taken care of and behind me. What are the chances that they will revoke and I will go to jail... I have a good job I don't want to loose and 2 kids (7 years and 2 months) I can pay all my fees now... What are the chances they will revoke my probation?
That question is best answered by a local attorney. I practice in some counties where they would give you some jail...
In Texas can I get a Class A Misdemeanor expunged if I served probation and the case was disposed?
In 1994 at the age of 19 I was arrested for DWI. The case was dropped to a Class A Misdemeanor and I pleaded Nollo Contendre and served one year probation. The staus on my record shows that the case was disposed/CSCD. Can this case be expunged or do I have to file for non-disclosure?
Hmm. DWI is currently a class B misdemeanor and it was at the time of your arrest. Class A is a more serious charge....
I would like help in understanding the DWI plea bargain / trial process?
Is there a way to raise the points of concern we have about an arrest/charges before accepting a plea ( not found driving, evidence of a blow out, breathalyzer administered many hours after accident and arrest, no blood tests despite obvious signs of impairment not typical of alcohol, etc)? Without going to trial, is there no way to fight for reduced/different charges? It seems strange that the charges are given and the only choices we have are either accept them or pay thousands of dollars for a trial. My son, who is the one actually facing the charges, just wants to "get this over with" and accept plea bargain (I know paying for a trial is out of his reach and think this is his primary reason for just wanting to accept a plea). Thank you so much~
Depends. In some jurisdictions, there's a no bargaining policy, but what you're saying doesn't make sense. First,...
Can I sue for false arrest? Arrested for DWI, passed blow test at scene and blood came back clear.
False arrest, discriminated against because of being a female over 40 years of age, obese and could not pass the field sobriety test (that is a proven to fail test for all).Was 100% sober when I was pulled over for going 12 miles over speed limit, respectful to officer and coherent. Asked over 20 times if I had anythingto drink and if I was in drugs.Repeatedly told him no and my blow test at scene clearly stated .00.Cop felt stupid in front of the back up cop bc I proved him wrong so he accused me of drugs. At jail, interrogated more by narcotics officer. Spent 24 hours in jail. Charged with DWI 2nd offense (got a DWI at 18 yrs old, I am 42 now). Had to have the interlock device in car for 7 months, after blood came back completely clear. Case finally got dismissed because DVD not provided
No, this isn't something you can sue for.
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...

I got pulled over blew at .13 I guess 4 points over limit need help I'm on probation
Research some good criminal defense lawyers...and I mean GOOD. You're facing serious charges. Many of us offer free...
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,...
