Can I get a PI dropped if I have a prior PI w an old DWI felony charge?
I have a prior DWI felony from 15 years ago. In the state of TX, as I completed 5 years probation that charge shows up as receiving it in 2007. I got a PI in TX a year ago. A few nights ago my spouse was physically abusing me in my house. We had been drinking. I didn't have a phone and all I could do was flee the house. He called the police trying to protect himself making up a story. In consequence of that, they found me across from my house and gave us both a PI. He has bn charged w domestic violence w a PI which goes to the state. I'm thinking I can dispute this PI under the circumstances.
If you want a favorable resolution, you will need to hire an attorney. You can easily get it deferred for a fine that...

Should my husband bond out of Texas to turn himself in to probation in Miss.? His bond is $20,000.
He was traveling with a permit from Miss. to Texas while on probation. 2004 he was convicted of a DUI was sentenced to SAFP and 10 years probation. (the 10 years was his idea) He transferred his probation from Texas to Miss. While traveling he pulled into a service station and while standing by the gas pump a drug task force agent pulled up and asked him where was the tag for the camp trailer he was pulling. He said he didn't have one but had the bill of sale we had just bought the trailer. Officer said it wasn't good enough and said he thought he smelled alcohol. My husband refused to blow, the officers asked him where were the drugs. They searched the pickup and my husband submitted to a blood test. They did find a empty beer can in the back floorboard. Should he try to bond out?
You should hire a Criminal Defense Attorney tomorrow and discuss this with him/her, this is important. No one on this...
If I plea guilty to an obstruction of highway charge and get one year probation, What come with the probation?
I was arrested for DUI even though I wasn't driving at the time nor was I drinking. I had called the police to escort my wifes cousin out of the house because I did not want him there. The officer said he smelled alcohol on my breath and called DPS to do a subrity test. I did the field test but the DPS officers breathalizer machine was broken so he took me to jail where I was to submit to a blood test. The put me in a cell and forgot about me. So no test was ever taken. I have a lawyer but he isn't sure how a jury will react to my word against the officers. I was not drinking nor driving but I am worried that jurrors always side with officers. Should I take the plea or go to trial? It has been over a year and now that it is time for trial they want me to take this plea. What should I do?
I would ask you lawyer about the options you have. It sounds like a very winnable case in front of a jury, but I have...

What will happen when I turn myself in for a dwi?
I have a dwi and a warrant out for my arrest for not showing up for my court hearing. I crashed a car under the influence of alcohol when I was 19 now I'm 21 and been avoiding turning myself in due to the fear of being in jail for a year.
There is probably a cash bond set on the FTA. Best to hire an attorney and turn yourself in than quit running. You can...
