In Texas I got a DWI and received 2 yrs probation. My P.O. tested me every 1-2 mo. for Meth. She insisted I failed at 9 mo.
I insisted on another test, I am a mimority, a black P.O. was watching she took the urine read the results and told her it wasn't pos. I find it doubtful that a P. O. With 9 yrs experience made a mistake, she then traded me
to another P.O. he said every 4 mo. I'm tested I pay $10. I told him she tested me every 1-2 mos. He looked on computer and she hadn't recorded them. We were both shocked. At 54 yrs old, this was my only crime and I excepted that and paid the price. I wonder how many lives she ruined. My new P.O. explained that his job was to HELP me get through Probation without any problems!!!!

What proof is needed to convict someone of DUI when breathalyzer is refused and jail fails to draw blood?
I am facing my third DUI. The first two were over 15 years ago but does not matter in Texas. It is a felony charge. I was stopped for doing 76 in a 70. No swerving, crossing lines, failure to maintain lane. I was driving because my girl had fallen ill. The officer noticed the smell of alcohol on me. He removed me from the car and I did the field tests including one foot counting to over 100 til the officer got tired of me NOT losing balance. I refused the breath test at the jail and was told a nurse would be down to draw blood. She never showed up between the time of booking and when I was bonded out. What are my chances of beating this charge? There is also video of the officer pouring out nearly the entire second beer which I had just opened before driving.
It sounds like you may have a strong defense - I would advise you to hire a local defense attorney immediately to...
I received a DUI in 2004. I served 2 years probation, paid all court fees, fines, and surcharges in order to keep my drivers license. I was a resident of Indiana at the time of conviction but received the DUI in Texas. I moved back to Texas about 5 years ago and I recently obtained my CDL here in Texas. Now all of the sudden Indiana is reporting my driving record and the DUI is listed on it. So Texas wants to suspend my license since Indiana didn't, so why did I pay the fees to Texas keep my license and keep sr22 insurance for two years?? I served the time for the crime yet they are trying to add more punishment 10 years after satisfying all requirements of the closed case. Now Texas is trying to give me a departmental suspension for an out of state conviction... Really?
Apparently, yes, Really. I agree with you that this stinks, but we are wasting time here online complaining....
