Can I still receive a DUI, and what do I do now?
Early this morning I was heading home after a night of drinking, I ran into another car and did a sobriety test twice, I wasn't however given a breathalyzer or any other test to see my BAC. I was given a ride home and only received a crash report and no other information on what to do or what is going on.
I doubt that you will be charged with a DWI. Did you refused the breathalyzer or just was never offered the test? You...
How can I get my DUI case dismissed? What are my strong points to argue in court? Is a lawyer necessary at this point? (TEXAS)
I was stopped for swerving and received a ticket for DUI. I was not intoxicated but i did admit to having a drink earlier during the day. I did not take a breathalyzer test, nor a blood test(they were not offered). I was in the vehicle with another friend (she was passed out in the passenger side) the officer let me go (no arrest) and he said i'll put here that i'm releasing you to her. (I was a minor at the time). 4 years later i'm receiving a letter stating i need to appear to court. (Jury Trial) Can this easily be changed to a bench trial? and How can I go about to fight this?
Your instincts are excellent that representation is your best bet, and not playing lawyer which would be a recipe for...
What kind of penalties am I facing in this situation and do the options change any being an "out of towner" with a first offense
I was arrested and charged with a DWI .15 or higher in San Antonio (Bexar County). I am from Houston and bonded out. What kind of penalties am I facing in this situation and do the options change any being an "out of towner"? It is my first DWI arrest but I do have a felony burglary of a building conviction from 4 years ago that I served 6 months state jail for. I had been sober for 2 years and just fell off the wagon. How can I avoid this from making my life crumble around me yet again?
There are no "out of towner" exceptions in my experience. They (Bexas County) will treat this just like any other Class...
Can I take an online dwi education course for Bexar county since it is difficult to find a physical classroom in my new state?
I was charged with my first DWI in San Antonio Texas, 2 weeks prior to my move to another state. Flew back to San Antonio to take a plea deal/obstruction of hwy and I was granted permission to travel to my new home. I cannot get a hold of my probation officer (attempted calling, emailing, and contact through the online checkin). It has been a week. I have an appointment for installation of my ignition interlock today, I submitted request to perform community service hours at the local food bank, even though I am not sure if this acceptable. My court paperwork is vague on how many dwi education hours (I am assuming I need to do 12hrs), how to perform TAIP, and where to get my urinalysis done/where to send the results.
Continue trying to get in touch with your PO. Right a letter to the office and even to the court with your questions/...
Can opposing use a convicted felon, drug charges, DUIs, and a few other charges, not to mention disbarment, as their law clerk?
We are being harassed to death! My husband is very detrimental to a case. He was stabbed almost to death and was sound asleep when attacked (premeditated). This person is wealthy by trust and is cared for by a large oil and gas law firm. This person received a 4th DWI and another assault charge to an elderly person all in less than 6 months, escaped with probation. Since they were unsuccessful in murder, they are using a friend to bring frivolous lawsuits against him and have recently included me, the wife. False allegations etc in a desperate attempt to discredit him in a completely different case. This "law clerk" is also a juris doctor, very chummy and confident in pushing paperwork, orders, getting judges to sign anything. Since I've called him out and asked questions about his credentials, the harassment is over the top and debilitating. I've even been threatened to shut up, late coming home one night. Our lawyer just flat wanted nothing to do with our case and seemed like she was working against us. Every time we got something dropped they filed something new. Now we are lawyerless. They have also gagged us in defending ourselves! Help!!
If you've been gagged, you might not want to post about it online. The answer is yes. ANYBODY, no matter what his...
Would this be the charge now? Or would it still be under a dwi charge? I am not understanding how this works.
I was arrested for a dwi first offense, a class b misdemeanor. I was told about a "take responsibilty" plea deal..where the charge would be obstruction of a highway under deferred adjudication. Also, since you have to plead guilty to the dwi offense, would this be a conviction on your record?
Your lawyer should be able to explain the particulars, but basically, you should NOT plead guilty to DWI - YOu would...
