Arrested for DWI in Aug 2014, Refused breath test and was taken to jail, bonded out next day, no previous record.
No previous driving or tickets. I am 57. DA wants me to take deal. 2 years probation drug testing etc. I have never been in trouble in my life. Totally clean driving record. Telling me Now I must call 2 days a week and come in for drug test if they so choose I also have to pay for the test. . I have not been to court yet and have not been found guilty.
Do you have an attorney? If not, why not? What is the question?
I refused dwi blood and breath test over 70 days ago and driver license is still valid?? Do u have a explanation for this??
I thought Texas gives you a 41 day driving permit before suspension on dwi refusal testing??
In some jurisdictions, the license is not suspended until there has actually been a conviction. You should use this...
In regards to a DWI in a town hours away from home, is it better to get an attorney from the arresting area, or closer to home?
It happened in a rural town outside of Clarksville, TX (Red River County) and I live in Plano, TX about 2 hours away. I'm concerned that a lawyer here wouldn't have the upperhand in the form of connections that others from that area would. Does this play an important factor?
I suggest that you hire an attorney with experience in the court where the case will be prosecuted. However, this is...
If I ditched my car to avoid dui charges, will I ensue other charges if I go pick my vehicle up?
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...
DUI Interlock System Requirement
I was arrested for a DUI in the state of TX and it appears as though I will be required to install an interlock system as part of my probation. I have two cars, one of which is my commute car with the other being mostly a weekend car. I really don't like the idea of installing this on my car and was wondering if it is possible to just install on my commute car and not drive the other? I have no intentions of driving without it but don't want to have to do both when I can just limit my driving to one.
The order will state that you are not to drive a vehicle unless it is equipped with an interlock device. You only need...
My husband got a DUI in Gregg Co. But he was already on probation for a DUI in San Patricio Co. Now there is a MTR.
He was returning home from a working trip and after dropping off a co-worker in Longview he drank (he was sober for 5.5 years.) His favorite brother-in-law had died suddenly while he was on his working trip, if this matters. He came home and did okay for a little while with probation, however they finally gave him an MTR. I believe that one time traces of alcohol were found in his urine. At any rate he is in San Patricio jail waiting on his hearing. He has 2 attorneys, one for the DUI (Gregg Co.) and one for the MTR (San Patricio Co.). His attorney here says that he is working on a workable solution with the other attorney that will satisfy both counties. I will testify for him at his hearing. My question is this what can I expect at this hearing? What are the different kinds of Rehab?
San Patricio county likes to use their RTC facility. (Residential Treatment Facility) It's an inpatient facility where...
My husband has a DUI in Gregg Co. but now has an MTR in San Patricio County. What will happen at the hearing?
My husband has 2 attorneys. He has one for the DUI in Gregg County and one for the MTR in San Patricio County. His lawyer here says that the 2 attorneys are working on a workable solution that will satisfy both counties to keep him from going to prison. He (the attorney) realizes that this was a relapse ( maybe due to a sudden death of a close relative while he was away on a business trip). My question(s) is this: What will happen at the hearing? I am going to testify; what do I say or not say? And should we try to get others to testify or write a letter on his behalf?
Ask the lawyer representing him on the motion to revoke.
