My fiance is 3 days away from signing a 12.44 (a) which will reduce the amount of time he's incarcerated but will leave a "state jail felony" in his record. We are thinking on telling the lawyer to reset the court date because it was not fully explained to us the effects it will have on his immigration status and if in the future he will have difficulty re entering the country legally. Since a DWI with a minor is not an "aggravated felony" does he still have a chance to become legal and be admisable versus just being inadmisable for over 3 years?
This is an immigration law question. I am moving it there.
I have clean record
My answer makes many assumptions. If you are eligible for probation, and you probably are, you would be placed on...
It was my first dui conviction
More likely than not Texas will find out about your OWI regardless of the State that it is from. For sure so too will...
I was 51 and even though I didn't feel intoxicated, I did feel I may be at or over the legal limit. So I pulled off the highway, called a friend and she was on her way when the cop pulled up behind me. He asked me to get out of the car (it was running but in park). I refused any of the roadside tests so I was arrested. When I went to court, the judge reduced to an Obstruction of the Highway, I paid $700 fine, and serviced 40 hours of community service. Two questions: When I fill out paperwork for a job application, do I have to admit I was arrested? Even though the charge for which I was arrested was dismissed.? 2nd: What are the chances of getting this expunged 3 1/2 years later. It is affecting my ability to gain employment. How do I get a pardon from the Govenor? Thank
You are under no legal obligation to be honest on job applications. However, if you are asked if you have ever been...
while intoxicated I hit a curve, so I pushed it to the side of the road. police then came and did a physical sobriety test and I apparently failed.
I don't see a question here to answer. I also don't know what offense you were charged with that night. Did you admit...
In the state of Texas, is an offense considered an arrest or conviction? Two DWI arrest, first lowered.
Hello, just doing research and a lot seems vague (hence why we have attorneys). I was recently arrested for my second DWI after 9 years and the first one was dropped to obs hwy/deferred. It seems that I am being prosecuted as a second offense but I was curious it that includes a conviction on the first arrest or not. I also just "received" by blood warrant results (4 months later from my attorney) and by the spreadsheet it shows 0.18. What are the typical increased measurements per this BAC? I'm just trying to prepare myself for a long road ahead. I appreciate any advice.
You really ought to be posing these questions to your attorney but here goes: You cannot be prosecuted for a second DWI...
I was successfully discharged from 18 months of probation in 2006 for my first DWI, 7 years of felony deferred adjudication probation in 2011 for sexual assault of a child. But, in 2013, I gave up on probation for my 2nd DWI, I couldn't afford it, no matter how I tried. "I got a job selling liquor," "NO!"; "I got a job clearing tables at a restaurant," "NO!" So I gave up, got my probation revoked. Now, I want probation again, 2 of 3 times I finished, and 1 for 1 on felony. Can I get probation again? Will going to a rehab facility help my chances? The best times of my life were when I was sober, I want to get back to that.
Rehab is a wonderful idea. Sobriety is a wonderful idea. Will either keep you out of jail this time? Who knows? You...
