DWI probation violation
I blew dirty into my breathalyzer last month. My PO says he wants to handle it administratively instead of prosecution. He called me randomly today to come meet with a counselor tomorrow. I fear they will give me a EGT test...which I would fail. Is it better to let him issue a probation violation so i can be represented by a lawyer or fail a EGT test and give them more evidence. Any advice is appreciated.....BTW I know I made a dumb mistake and have been beating my self up about it

If I am charged with DUI w/ child under 15, and abandoment with intent to return, can my Ex refuse to return kids & stop support
I was arrested in a parking lot of a restaurant off the main road. I had been drinking, but I was with a designated driver who ran away when he saw police! CPS came out and put my kids with my ex mother in law, later realized she had a CPS history and so does my Ex husband, so his girlfriend was appointed supervisor over him with the kids, 2 counties away. When I was released, I immediately contacted my X, the next day he told me he was keeping the kids and no longer paying child support. We have an open custody case, so he got a new, cheap attorney and filed an emergency hearing to modify TO's. My atty had a vacation letter on the day that was soonest, so we won't have a hearing for another 2+ weeks. I am not guilty, this is my first offense.
I suggest you repost this question under the family law section. However, for your new found criminal charge, I...
BAC of over .15
If one is charged with a first time DWI in texas but has a BAC of over .15 is the court required to order an Intoxalock system? Also I have been told that in Comal County the DA would rather go to trail than allow a DWI suspect to plea for something like Reckless driving, But does anyone know if they would allow a plea to 49.04b rather than 49.09d?
Judges will require an interlock ignition device when the BAC is over .15 and also when there is an accident. Each D.A.'...

I have submitted all the requirements...certified copy of the court order, SR22, Fees. I received my actual Occupational Drivers license in the mail, however the online status states that I'm not eligible to drive...it's always said this. Would the DPS issue the actual Drivers License if they hadn't received everything they requested? Am I legal to drive within the perimeters courts orders?
You need to keep the Court's ODL order and the original petition in your car when you drive. Your actual ODL does not...
