Can a DWI charge which was amended to Reckless Driving with no community supervision be expunged in Texas?
I have a question about DWI expungement in Texas. In 2007 I was stopped and charged with DWI. Ultimately, the DA "amended" the charge by filing a "motion to amend information" and changed the language from DWI language to "did then and there drive a vehicle in wanton disregard for the safety of persons or property." I subsequently plead guilty to reckless driving. I was not required to perform any community supervision. I paid a fine of $400 and was given credit for 3 days in jail. I would like to know if it is worthwhile to hire a lawyer to try to expunge either the original DWI charge, which was amended, or the reckless driving conviction. Is this doable, or will I just be wasting my time. Thank you very much for your help!
You need to understand that what you have is a conviction for Reckless Driving. When you get a conviction there is...
Can I get a DWLE expunged? I received this in 2006. I had a DWI in 2004 and I was paying surcharges one payment was late.
Can I get a DWLE expunged? I received this in 2006. I had a DWI in 2004 and I was paying surcharges. They said my payment was late one time and they suspended my license. I didn't know that it was suspended because they sent a notice to the incorrect address. I was pulled over for speeding and was taken to jail. I was released the next day on bail and later had to plead guilty because they told me it was my fault because I didn't inform them of my new address. I didn't realize how much this would affect me. It is a Class C misdemeanor on my record and I would like to get it off my record. I have two DWI's one in 2004 and the other in 2007. I have learned from my mistakes, but finding it hard to find a good job with 3 misdemeanors on my record. I know I can't get the DWI's off. Help please
Do you mean DWLI? And it is your fault if you didn't change your address. If it was a Class C and you received...

I had erased from my mind a DWI that happened 36 years ago when I applied for my License in real estate. Will this affect me receiving my license? Should I contact TREC to submit this information. I just applied this week.
I would call TREC and explain the situation. They may or may not want you to do a new application.
How do I get a restricted license for work in Tx?
I lost my license in Michigan for DUI. live in Tx now but michigan will not release my license. I obtained a lawyer, did everything asked, returned all paperwork.

I've been on probation for 8 mo. Dwi first offense but I can no longer afford it. Should I do time served?
I've been on probation for 8 months. It's my first dwi, I was a full time student but just recently graduated but unfoetunately haven't found a job yet so I can't afford to pay. I had the ignition interlock for the 6 months it was assigned for but after the 6 months I was unable to continue payments. My car right now is in lockout, I don't have the money to remove it. Also, after the dwi conviction I picked up a possession of marijuana 0-2 oz and they added drug court to my sentence + 700 $ fine. Is it better to continue and Take all the classes even though I'm broke or should I do time served? Overall I was given 15 months probation but it was extended by 6 months. I feel like I am in a deep hole, please help.p
If you fail at probation and ever get in trouble with the law again, the prosecutor will almost certainly notice your...

Arrested for DWI and they said I refused to give a blood test.
What can i do if I were arrested for DWI and asked for the breathalizer and they said no. They then said I refused to give a blood test but I have pictures where they cleary tried to draw blood which you can see a huge bruse.
