    Friday Jul 24 | via Dallas Morning News 

    A gag order in a criminal case arising from a shootout at a biker gathering in Waco is unconstitutional, overly broad and should be lifted, attorneys for 16 media organizations argued in a brief filed Friday with a Texas appeals court. The Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press and 15 other organizations, including The Associated Press, filed the "friend of the court" brief in support of a motion by an attorney for one of 177 people arrested after the shooting.

    "They both had the delusion that they'd be able to commit the crime and then escape," Clint Van Zandt tells TheWrap John Russell Houser, the shooter who killed two people and wounded nine others at the Grand Theatre Lafayette multiplex in Louisiana on Thursday, was likely copycatting Aurora, Colorado, shooter James Holmes, according to a leading authority on criminal psychology.

    Tuesday Jul 21 | via The Atlantic 

    Why is Waco, Texas, fighting to suppress multiple videos of the shootout that killed 9 bikers at the Twin Peaks restaurant on May 17? Why are some attorneys in the case now prohibited from talking to the press? And why haven't Waco officials revealed how many of the nine victims were killed by bullets from police officers' guns? These are the most pressing questions as 177 people await a grand jury's decision about whether they will be indicted for murder, conspiracy, or on lesser charges after attending a regularly scheduled meeting of motorcycle enthusiasts that turned violent. Attendees included members of violent outlaw motorcycle gangs and innocuous clubs.

After all, where else can you find shoot-em-up, Sons of Anarchy thrill stories? When I use the term 'Citizen' I referr to it as it is used in the biker culture.

What are the laws for dwi with child passenger under 15 X 2 in Texas?
What amount of alcohol (BAC percentage) is considered illegal and also what if there were therapeutic amounts of prescription medicines (Diazapam and Hydrocodone) in your system? My BAC was .03 and the other prescribed meds were verified to be within therapuetic levels. Will this still be a felony and what will happen since I had 2 children in the car? (ages 14 and 11)
The following lays it out, but get a local criminal lawyer on deck now as it's serious http://www.dmv.org/tx-texas/...
Do I need a Texas State Board of Nursing Attorney or a DWI Attorney?
I got a DWI with child passenger under 15 X2 in 2009. The toxicology report shows therapeutic amounts of hydrocodone as well as Xanax in my system.(both prescribed) The alcohol analysis showed a BAC of .03 but I still got a felony because the kids were in the car. I am trying to apply to take the NCLEX to get my nursing license. The declaratory order asked me to disclose as well as provide disposition and discharge from probation. They are not asking for the tox report or the alcohol analysis. My disposition only shows a DWI. I want to show them that I had very low levels of both prescriptions and alcohol in my system by showing them the report. Would I have to show them both reports since they are separate or should I not provide them either report. They never asked for them.
You might want to discuss this matter with an attorney who regularly appears before the Nursing licensing board (a DWI...
Will there be a way to resolve without jail time?
My dad got a DWI in Augusta County, VA in Sept. 2013. In Oct 2013, we moved to Texas (where we still reside). His trial was Feb 27th of last year. The judge gave him 1 year in jail - suspended, ASAP, and the ignition interlock. My dad paid his fines and went to his court date in Texas. The Texas judge ordered that he go to four AA meetings and that's it. He has documentation of this. Virginia now has a capias out for his arrest for Failing to Comply with ASAP. He had no knowledge of this because they sent the papers to the wrong address, twice. We just became aware of this. We're more than willing to resolve this any way we can. My dad is not in good health and needs constant care. He has documentation of this also. Do you think Virginia would be willing to resolve without jail time?

I live in Mississippi. I was just convicted of DUI in Texas and now probation is telling me I can't leave to go to my home.
hello I was in Texas (I was living there at the time but my husband died unexpectedly and I had to be close to family so moved to Mississippi in July) last year got a dui and yesterday I took the plea. The judge said I could leave and go back to my residence in Mississippi, I go to the probation office and they tell me I can't leave the state until I get permission. I told the Probation officer the judge said I could leave and she says "it doesn't matter what the judge says, you can't leave until Austin approves transfer" is this true? I thought the judge dictated the terms of probation and the probation just monitored I am doing what I was told to do. My lawyer told me to go back home
I would discuss this with the lawyer who represented you. Yes, the judge dictates the terms and probation monitors, but...
