I was involved in an auto accident in November of 2012. I was found at fault because I was charged with DWI. During the accident, I was traveling on the roadway when another vehicle turned out in front of me and I was unable to stop in time and rear-ended the other vehicle. We pulled into a parking lot. I asked the other driver if she was ok to which she stated, "Yes." She then began yelling and pointing angrily then called police. When police arrived I was given a SFST and then arrested on DWI charges. The other driver requested medical evaluation and left in an ambulance. I plead no contest to DWI and paid my fines and served probation etc. I got served with lawsuit papers the other day that the woman is suing for between 200k and 1 million. I have no assets or money. What do I do?
If you had insurance contact your insurance company and send them the lawsuit. If not you need a lawyer but with no...

I got my car stuck in a ditch and I had to ditch my car because I had a few drinks before the happening. It was towed to a storage and towing facility.
It is possible that you may face charges of leaving the scene of an accident, if you admit to driving, but that is...
Just to start, I don't live in Texas but I am moving to Austin. I was visiting and hanging with some friends, one of which was 19 years old. I had a beer (I'm 21). I was careless and totally forgot that he was not 21. I gave him one sip of beer. Later, he took the cup without asking and took another sip. He was not drunk and that was it. Later that night, he drove home in his vehicle. I realized what I did was a misdemeanor. It was a careless mistake. I do have a personal conviction to obey the law. Am I obligated by law to report this and turn myself in? I know I can get away with it, but I don't want to break another law by keeping this secret. Also, am I obligated to report my 19 year old friend, who drove after having a few sips of alcohol?
No. There is no obligation to report something of this nature. Your desire to be a law-abiding citizen is impressive,...
Can a judge order a defendant facing a DWI to divuldge his past history of attending treatment centers ?
Can I choose not to provide my treatment history to the courts as I feel it would be devistating to my case. I am facing one of the toughest and possibly most corrupt systems in the state of Texas ( Willianson Cty.) They by reputation and historical facts are extremely harsh when it comes to convicting and sentanceing of DWI offenders (even 1st timers).
A Judge cannot order you to breach your 5th Amendment right to self-incrimination before guilt is assessed. However,...
I have been charged with DUI and am applying for pre trial intervention. Do I have to disclose all treatment centers i have been
they do not specificaly request this info but my attorney has asked me to go ahead and include all of the treatment centers as well as the dates. Do prosecutors and courts typically have the time and resources to research my history and discover all of the treatment centers I have attended? I ask this because I feel if they are aware of this information they will reject me from the program with the feeling that I need more stringent rules of probation even though I am 44yr old male and do not have a criminal record of any kind not even a missdamenor
You have been charged with DWI, not DUI. DUI is for people under 21. If your attorney told you to include the...
