Yes you should consult with an attorney, and if you can't afford to hire your own, request that the court appoint one...
I received a status hearing letter from judge sent out on second year anniversary for my 2nd dwi arrest?
The only thing that has happened with the case, is that I was granted my occupational license, ( I refused to blow, therefore suspension on license). I have a blower on my vehicle as a bond condition. I received a letter from judge dated on the anniversary of my arrest, stating a Status Hearing was set for 2 weeks away. Is it possible that they can still charge or sentence me? I thought there was a statute of limitations?
The statute of limitations to file an information (the charging instrument in a misdemeanor) against you is 2 years.
Can I get a DWLS? If I was told in person & have it writing that with Ins., & SR-22 that I would be legal to drive?
I am in 3rd yr of paying surcharge for No Ins. ticket. I've paid $100.00 2/22/2013 to local DPS for reinstatement fee. And on that paper from paying that payment online states that at this time no other requirements need to met. I was told then I would to get Ins., & an SR-22. Which I do Mon.18th,2013 However Fri.22nd,2013 I was pulled over for brushing the curb and given a warning for it. ,But was told my license was suspended and given a ticket for DWLS. I went to local county court house to try and figure out what was going on with my license. I was told I was supposed to have an Occupational License. No one anywhere through all of this has ANYONE mentioned I needed to do anything else once I had Ins With an SR-22. I've been online on the phone and in person trying to get legal again
You probably don't need an ODL, but you need to find out. Your license was suspended until you paid the reinstatement...
Are there any travel restrictions to Guatemala or Nicaragua with a DWI or DUI?
As I understand it, Canada has some super strict rules on travel after a conviction for DWI or DUI. I'm wondering if there are any issues with travel to Guatemala or Nicaragua after a conviction?
My significant other has to travel there this year and next for work. We have the final court date today for conviction and we can ask our lawyer then, but I'm looking for a quick answer beforehand. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
You will face trouble if you leave the country before a verdict is handed down. That is probably the most obvious...
On probation for a DWI and I got arrested for a PI.
I am currently on probation for a DWI I got in Travis County until December 2016. I moved to Montgomery county and my PO is in Montgomery county for the DWI. I just got a PI a couple weeks ago in Montgomery county. What is going to happen to my probation? Do I have to tell my PO? I really don't want to go back to jail.
A relatively small number of people WANT to go back to jail, but many more do things that make it inevitable.
