How long does it take to go to court for 3rd DWI?
My fiancé got arrested for his 3rd DWI recently and I was just wondering how long it will be before he goes to court. We are supposed to get married in October.
The only way to know for sure is to consult with an attorney who does DUI defense in the area. sometimes these cases...
In Texas, how long does it take to be indicted when you're out on bond?
My husband was arrested Feb. 29, 2016 for DWI 3rd or more. He refused the breath test & did the blood test after he was arrested, which was about 5 hrs later. He saw the judge the next morning & I paid his bond. He's been going to his pretrial officer once a week. He has to pay $15 a week for his drug test, plus the $65 a month. We also have a breathilizer on our jeep. Here it is 5 months later & still no indictment. If he's having to do all this, how long does it usually take for an indictment? Do they just keep taking our money until he's indicted? I understand that's part of the process, but 5-6 months in to it, we're just ready for all this to be over. Please, how long does it take?
The statute of limitations for felony DWI 3rd is 3 years from the date of offense; the State has until then to file...
Will they still prosecute if his blood was under the legal limit? How long does it take for blood tests to come back?
My husband got arrested for dwi 3rd or more. He refused the breath test, was in custody for 4 hrs before they administered the blood test. He's pretty sure he passed the blood test by the time they took it. He went to court this morning, he hasn't been indicted yet. The video (if they have video) may not look good because he has a sciatic nerve problem & if he doesn't hold on to anything when he first stands up, rather getting out of bed, his chair, or his truck, he falls down. We have all the Dr. papers from the years over this. His first dwi was in 1990, 1996, 1996 (both counted as 2nd), 2001 (his third).
They can still prosecute if he passes the blood test. They didn't used to have blood or breath tests and they still got...

Best not to listen to any nonsense of anyone other than your representation
Can I get an occupational license before my DWI license suspension starts?
My DL suspension for my DWI is supposed to start in 39 days. Can I go ahead and petition for an occupational license so I don't have a period once my suspension starts where I can't drive to work or do I have to wait until the suspension officially starts?
This may differ by jurisdiction. You should consult an attorney to see what conditional, provisional, temporary, or...
Can I get an occupational license before I go to court for a DWI?
I'm a month and a half out from court date for a DWI and my 40 day period before my suspension will be up a week or so before then. Everything I read says I have to go to court to get approval for an occupational license. Is there a way I can get that process going before my 40 days is up so there isn't a stretch where I cannot drive?
Yes you can get an occupational before your DWI court date. You should speak to an attorney about that.
