Can I get this public intoxication ticket dismissed in court?
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?

DUI: Surcharge
In mid-2012, I received a conviction for DUI. My license, as per the court, was suspended for 1 year. DPS never received notice of the conviction, and my license never showed up as suspended. Three years later now, I am wondering about the surcharge which also wasn't assessed. The Texas statute says: Sec. 708.102(b) Each year the department shall assess a surcharge on the license of each person who during the preceding 36-month period has been finally convicted of an offense relating to the operating of a motor vehicle while intoxicated. Sec. 708.102(d)A surcharge under this section for the same conviction may not be assessed in more than three years. Will the surcharge automatically expire this year, so that it can never be assessed as it passed out of the three year time frame?
Check your license and all the applicable surcharges and other actions on DPS website. It will tell you what is...
