I was arrested for DWI in Texas and all charges were dismissed. what doc can I get from court to prove it to Canadian border ?
Need to travel to Canada but if they see arrest record for DWI they will want some sort of official dismissal of the DWI.
Look up your case in the Court's database and get the "Order of Dismissal" that the Judge signed. If you have enough...
What's the most favorable juror type to win a DWI case? More educated, less?
When picking a jury for DWI trial is ther a favorable personality, or preference in juror to help tip the balance in the defense favor.
It's such a complex question. It depends on the person I would say. female, male, educated, uneducated, etc. Who can...
Will Florida extradite on a misdemeanor VOP for a 2nd DUI conviction? I am currently in Texas.
When I obtained the DUI I was living in Fl, but working in AL. Because I lost my license I moved across the state line to AL in order to get back and forth to work. My probation officer knew of and approved my move. I was unable to complete my provisions (alcohol classes) because of transportation, and then I lost my job and had to move in with relatives in Texas just to have a roof over my head. I have a $750 cash bond, and want to know if there is a statute of limitations on the VOP warrant?
Contact local counsel.
I live in Louisiana, do I need to have an ALR hearing?
This is my first DWI, and as of now my main goal is being able to drive back and forth from LA to Houston( I work in Houston) Do I need a lawyer for this? I do not have a whole lot of extra income at the moment, although I seem not to qualify for a court attorney because of my annual salary. Advice welcome
You MUST WIN your ALR because you will lose your license otherwise. A restricted license (ODL) is no good outside of...
My husband is on probation for 2nd DWI, and failed a UA. The court wants him to attend a out-patent rehab, is this expensive?
He has spent over $30,000 on lawyers, court costs, fines, SCRAM devices, monthly probation fees, etc... Is the drug/Alcohol rehabilitation located in Stafford expensive? I know the normal ones at dedicated hospitals cost $5,000- $10,000 per month. It will last 6 months and will be 3 nights per week. In addition he will have to have a home breathalizer at an additional cost and he will be made to keep the one on the car. How much do these hospitals cost? He has not asked me for a dime in all this but I can see nothing but depression setting in and the fear that this will financially wipe him out. I will admit that he does dumb stuff sometimes but enough is enough. No one will tell him what it costs and I can tell it is eating him up. Can someone please help? What can I tell him?
Your concern for your husband is right and you are smart to ask for guidance, but lawyers don't have the answers that...
I failed a UA. I am on probation for DWI (2 years). 2nd, last one was 20 years ago. what can I expect to happen to me.
When this came up with the PO. She said she would seek more UA testing in the future and asked me to write down what I did and sign it. So I did, 3 beers. 3 beers in 19 months. (11 months on probation). After signing it she said that she was going ask the court to put the SCRAM bracelet back on ($8 a day), extend the breathalizer on the car for another year ($74 per month), a 6 month treatment program to be paid by me all at a minumum. Then she accused me of lieing about the amount of drinking and became very brash. The SCRAM was on for a while and due to some medical problems my muscles in my right leg atraphyed, I am in pain all the time but swiming will end with the SCRAM. I admitted what I did and the deal changed in a minute. Should I take the year in jail to get rid of the probation
I would never encourage a client to simply take the year in jail, especially if you are charged with a DWI 2d and you...
I am on probation for DWI. I will most likely fail a urine test due to normal products on the market containing alcohol.
As stated, I am on probation for DWI. I use products like hand sanitizers & brush with mouth wash twice a day. I suffered a heart attack last year that was quite seviere. I take medication and try to keep as clean as possible, mouth bacteria being dangerous in itself. I understand the tests look for markers that the liver uses to remove ethanol. I have a feeling I will fail this test. What are the possible reprocussions? If I lose my job due to jail time, I lose health care and without health care I am not going to do well. The heart attack occured during the middle of a hip replacement and I was flat-lined for over an hour and then a quad by-pass. Does the State have to provied me with medications? Or do I just prey that I have time to do myself and not die in jail
The amount of alcohol in hand sanitizers and mouthwash, used normally, are not going to elevate the test results to the...
