I admittedly was drunk when I hitched a ride with my friend to another friend's place where I would reside for the night. We were following behind the aforementioned friend where my driver ran a red light. Shortly after we were pulled over (I in the passenger seat) about 3 blocks from our destination. My friend was asked a series of questions and then arrested for running a red light and "being rude to the officer". I was communicating with the officer and she told me that I may walk to my friend's place but that changed when her lieutenant arrived. I was given a field sobriety test and then arrested. I had given the officer the address of my friend's house a couple of times letting her know the proximity of the destination but it was to no avail. Neither of us were read our rights. Help?
These are common and defendable circumstances. Hire a lawyer to represent you. You will be glad you did. Do not...
Does this sound like the correct process? Any further tips? I got a Public Intoxication and I want it dismissed. From what I've gathered, I will need to: 1) I will ask for deferred probation. (I should NOT plead guilty or even no-contest) 2) I will complete deferred probation, complete what is requested of me, and get it dismissed. --- Now my goal will be to get it expunged: 1) 6 months after dismissal, I will get fingerprinted with L1 and obtain my criminal record. 2) I will complete the Expungement Petition that I found here: http://sites.lawhelp.org/documents/clusters/TX/443/English/1_Expunction_Petition_Final.pdf 3) I will bring to the courts the completed expungement form, copy of my criminal record, proof of completion of whatever I was assigned, and copy of my ID.
Sounds about right.
He has his 3rd dwi and is on probation
Assuming that he is only charged with a DWI 3rd he is facing anywhere from 2-10 years. No one here can tell you how...
What does a Deferred probation for a Public Intoxication Class C misdemeanor usually entail? What do the courts usually require of you when you request a Deferred? Do you still pay a fine, community service, or just wait a duration of time?
The best person to answer this question is a qualified criminal defense lawyer who practices in this jurisdiction....
I got my 2nd DWI on October 24, 2012. I have had an interlock in my car since November of 2012. For 8 of those months I wasn't even driving because of a waiting period for an ODL, just blowing into my car one or two times daily because they said that I had to. The first violation I blew was in March I believe, and I never heard anything about it I'm assuming because I didn't drive back then? My second violation was blown on August 14 at 3:27 PM, I blew a .042. My lawyer's office called me this morning to tell me that I needed to appear before the judge on Monday morning? When I asked what would happen they continue to tell me they don't know. Am I going to jail? Will the judge revoke my bond for ONE violation? Please help!
Most of the misdemeanor judges in Dallas give you one violation, after that you will go to jail.
I'm planning on taking a plea deal for a DWI in Dallas County, which includes getting probation for 18 months. At this time I'm unemployed and cannot find work in Dallas. I'm from Florida and my extended family lives there. Recently, I was offered a job in Florida and was told all I have to do is move back and I can start working. If I'm on probation, can I move to Florida? Is there anyway that my probation case can be transfered to Florida?
Your lawyer would need to address this with the Court. Some courts allow transfers and some do not.
I got a violation on my smart start device. I was not drinking and have witnesses to vouch for that. I freaked out and called the police and asked if they could send someone to give me a breathalyzer and they said no. My probation was transferred to Tarrant Co. and my probation officer said she sent the report to Dallas Co. She said it was up to them. I have never violated and never done anything wrong on probation. What should I do?
You need to pay better attention. If this is a misdemeanor, you should have had the interlock removed after 1/2 of...
