Liberty Hill Law
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 ?

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...
