In the state of Texas how long does a prosecuting county have to hear a plea on a DWI after the defendant is arraigned?
My case keeps getting pushed back. I of course would like to come to some form of closure but also have heard if its not presented by a certain point it goes away.
Absent speedy trial issues, there is no set time period to close out a DWI case. Attorneys often drag these cases out...
What proof is needed to convict someone of DUI when breathalyzer is refused and jail fails to draw blood?
I am facing my third DUI. The first two were over 15 years ago but does not matter in Texas. It is a felony charge. I was stopped for doing 76 in a 70. No swerving, crossing lines, failure to maintain lane. I was driving because my girl had fallen ill. The officer noticed the smell of alcohol on me. He removed me from the car and I did the field tests including one foot counting to over 100 til the officer got tired of me NOT losing balance. I refused the breath test at the jail and was told a nurse would be down to draw blood. She never showed up between the time of booking and when I was bonded out. What are my chances of beating this charge? There is also video of the officer pouring out nearly the entire second beer which I had just opened before driving.
It sounds like you may have a strong defense - I would advise you to hire a local defense attorney immediately to...
I received a DUI in 2004. I served 2 years probation, paid all court fees, fines, and surcharges in order to keep my drivers license. I was a resident of Indiana at the time of conviction but received the DUI in Texas. I moved back to Texas about 5 years ago and I recently obtained my CDL here in Texas. Now all of the sudden Indiana is reporting my driving record and the DUI is listed on it. So Texas wants to suspend my license since Indiana didn't, so why did I pay the fees to Texas keep my license and keep sr22 insurance for two years?? I served the time for the crime yet they are trying to add more punishment 10 years after satisfying all requirements of the closed case. Now Texas is trying to give me a departmental suspension for an out of state conviction... Really?
Apparently, yes, Really. I agree with you that this stinks, but we are wasting time here online complaining....

Do I need to disclose a "wet reckless" misdemeanor obtained in California in 2009 when applying for a TX Medical License?
I obtained a "wet reckless" in 2009 in California. Completed the course and payed the fine. I have been off probation for 2 years. I am graduating residency in June 2014 and wanted to apply for the TX Medical license. The online application specifically asks "have you ever been arrested?" Do I answer yes or do I answer no since I did not get arrested in Texas?
Were you "arrested" for that charge? If yes, then the answer will obviously be YES. If you were just issued a...
I have had 3 ignition interlock devices and 2 in-home units. Although no alcohol has been consumed, I have had 10 violations! My probation officer said that my probation has been revoked and I would have to go back to court. What are the chances and/or reports of malfunction?
