Can a Class B theft charge for which I completed probation still be sealed, despite being convicted of a DWI years later?
I was arrested in 2010/convicted in 2011 of a Class B Theft charge in Waco, TX. I was sentenced to probation, was released early, and my P.O. told me I could have it sealed with the petition process. I kept putting off the petitions process and then I was arrested/convicted of a DWI in Travis County last year (2013). Can I still get the Theft charge sealed? It is keeping me from almost every job opportunity in business now that I've graduated college. I need that theft off of there.
You say you were convicted of the theft - if you got straight probation then you are not eligible. My guess is you got...
So at the jail I was given the Statutory Warning and it was read out loud to me. The paper says "You will be asked to give a specimen of your breath and/or blood." After it was read to me the officer asked "May I take a breath specimen?" I said "No." Then he walked away, and I was taken back to booking. I was dumbfounded because I thought I would get the option of a blood specimen. After several minutes the officer told me he got a warrant. I kept asking the cop why he hadn't given me the option of blood before a warrant was issued. He wouldn't respond. Also he checked "Subject refused to allow taking of a specimen and refused to sign below as requested by this officer" I was NEVER asked so sign anything! Is this right? I mean if I knew breath was my only option I would have said yes!
Yes. That is all correct. The officer gets to choose what type of speciment to ask for. He is supposed to ask you to...

3rd degree felony DWI w/ child passengers is a lawyer needed if the DA has already stated that he will approve shock probation?
My husband is now in jail in a different county waiting to be sent to TDC (sentenced to shock probation on a different case). He has no lawyer for this DWI case, but I spoke with the DA & he is willing to file the necessary paperwork for my husband to get the DWI case ran concurrent with the case in the other county that he has already been sentenced for. Today while in county lockup my husband was told that he has a bench warrant for McLennan county (the DWI county). Does this mean that the DA held his word and filed the paperwork for the shock probation and should I still consider getting a lawyer anyway just to be safe? How can I find out what the bench warrant is actually for?
You ALWAYS want a lawyer on any offense that can land you in jail or prison, no matter what and no matter how much it...

It is possible he can get probation. Nothing in the law prohibits him from getting probation. They will look at the...
I just got my 2nd dwi this year. I got my first one over 10 years ago. And I had the interlock device put on my car.
Now my car is up for repo. What do I need to do? And when I get another car will I have to put it back on again, threw out the duration of my probation?
You need to find an experienced DWI attorney who will point out to court that the interlock is not justified because...
