I got a DUI and now i owe the fines and when i called to take care of fines they said i needed to write a letter to vacate the warrant even though i had already went to all my court dates
You need to consult an attorney. It's hard to tell what is happening from your question. There's a big difference...
I was arrested for reckless driving. I was not read my rights until 7:00am the next morning. After spending the night in jail. I still don't have any paper work on it. No copy of the ticket. Nothing. I don't know what to do
You should contact a local attorney. You can also ask family to inquire into your bond, and see about getting you out....
I did not take a breath test, I told the officers that I was falling asleep at the wheel (which i was) i just refused the breath test so they arrested me. I was drinking the night before but I slept some hours before I got in the car. I was given a blood test about 2-3 hrs after I was arrested. This was 05/04/2013 and it is now 02/04/2014 and I havent heard anything. Is there a place online where I could look to see what the hold up is?
It is possible that the laboratory testing the blood is behind and has not tested/sent the results of testing to the...
Yes my son was arrested in Travis County. His bond was set at $2,000.00 so I did bond him out yesterday so he could continue to work and continue with school. He currently works at a recovery place in Austin and attends a local college. He did not breathe or give blood. He was released from prison in March of this year and has been meeting all the terms of his parole until this incident. He was in prison for robbery. Does he need an attorney for the parole hearing also? This is his 1st DWI with no prior history of dui or dwi. He does however have possesion charges from when he was a minor.
Be aware that he will likely get a blue warrant issued - a parole warrant for which there is no bond. If that happens,...
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 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,...
