My 21 year old son was charged with DWI w/minor in car. His 14 yr sister-in-law was in the car when he was stopped. She was 3 weeks from turning 15. When he went to arraignment, the judge denied him a public defender because he admitted to smoking a marijuana cigarette 2 weeks before going to court. The judge's comment was "If he had enough money to buy marijuana, then he had enough money to hire a lawyer." He did not buy it the marjuana, a friend of his did.

But, in 2013, I gave up on probation for my 2nd DWI, I couldn't afford it, no matter how I tried. "I got a job selling liquor," "NO!"; "I got a job clearing tables at a restaurant," "NO!" So I gave up, got my probation revoked. Now, I want probation again, 2 of 3 times I finished, and 1 for 1 on felony. Can I get probation again? Will going to a rehab facility help my chances? The best times of my life were when I was sober, I want to get back to that.
Rehab is a wonderful idea. Sobriety is a wonderful idea. Will either keep you out of jail this time? Who knows? You...
We moved in tarrant county, about 2 weeks ago. My husband got a dui in California, the judge agreed to do his probation in Texas.
