How likely will my case be dismissed or expunged? Attorney is trying to get me into a program where I can get case thrown out.
This happened in Texas, I got into a car accident back in 2015 ,no one was hurt just me. The car actually blew up on the freeway. Officer did the field test on me but I wasn't able to do it due to my knee getting shattered. So he read me my rights and arrested me Took me to the station but didn't book me nor finger printed. I did blow into the machine. He released me so I can get medical help. So now it's almost been 2 years. Got pulled over by a Texas state trooper back in December of last year and my record was clean. Now a couple of days after that I got pulled over in New Mexico by a sheriff, he told me I have a warrant for my arrest in Texas. He didn't arrest me due to my warrant not having an extradition. So he said he wasn't gonna waste his time.So I called the sheriff' in Texas and they told me I have a dwi warrant. Why didn't it show up with the Texas state trooper .So I got a dwi attorney and he pulled my case and yes I had a capias warrant. So he set up a hearing which I was present but didn't go inside the courtroom only he did. Comes out and hands me a paper showing the capias removal was granted by the judge and DA. Now he's trying to get my case dismissed.

I got a dui 6 months ago and my license hasn't been suspended. Why ?
The officer confiscated my license and gave me a 40 day temporary license. The time came and went and nothing ever happened. I've been checking online and it says I'm still eligible. I have buddies in law enforcement that have checked for me and they say it's still valid. I never received a letter saying it was suspended or anything.
If you did a blood test they could be waiting in results. Additionally DPS is just a bunch of government screw ups and...
I got arrested for a DWI back in August 2016 and I haven't received a court date yet. It's been 5 months. Why is that ?
I ran a stop sign back in August and thats what prompted the officer to pull me over. He proceeded to do the field sobriety test and he determined I failed it. I was immediately put under arrest and taken to the station where I blew a .13. My license was taken away and I was processed into the jail. I posted bail and got out. 5 months have passed and my license hasn't been suspended and I don't have a court date.

I was arrested for DWI and my charges were dismissed through PTD. Can I have my record expunged?
Under my criminal conviction, it does state waiver of speedy trial and waiver of rights of expunction. My arrest has come up in several jobs to which they had turn me down from. I was wondering if there is any way I can have this expunged, at the time I didn't realize I had the waivers under the criminal record. I'm confused as to how this works. I appreciate the help, thanks.

I was offered Pretrial Diversion for my DWI case, please help with my question.
So my alcohol level was a .68 just under the limit but it was a blood test. My lawyer said he worked to get the pretrial diversion program offered to me but i would have to sign a paper that i cant have it expunged from my record. Now he said we can take it to a jury but its a 50/50 chance i can be guilty obviously. So basically i want to know is there anyway i can have this expunged or will the only way would be to take a chance with a jury?
I don't understand why they would want you to sign something where you are agreeing to not petition the court for an...

I'm on federal supervised release and was arrested for DWI. 21 years ago I had a DWI. Is it possible to resolve my DWI without going back to prison for violating my probation?
If there is to be any chance of that, you will need a "not guilty" at least. Hire the very best DWI attorney you can...
What can I do when Motion to suppress BAC results was denied by judge. My DWI case is going to Jury trial.
I was arrested for DWI in April 2015, the technician used expired kit to collect my blood sample and the results of the test was mislabeled with wrong case number. The first result that came was not mine with BAC of .05, it belongs to someone else, there was a mix up of BAC. The prosecutor later brought another result after six months, that this is my BAC results after a lots of mistake. Then expired via tube was used to preserve my blood sample. My attorney presented all these to suppress the BAC result which is .175, but the judge denied it and set the case to Jury trial. Can someone advise me on what to do. Thanks.
Your facts reported here certainly give me reasonable doubt, but I won't be on your jury, and I don't know about your...
