Mansfield Law

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. Is this a valid reason to deny someone free counsel if they cannot afford an attorney? We have just lost our house & we cannot afford to hire him a lawyer. What can I do to help him?

My breathalyzer just gave me a violation tonight. I had a couple of sips of drink at my hoa meeting, I was told there was not any alcohol.

Please see my answer to your previous question.
I am on probation and have to take a hair follicle test after a 3 and 6 month term I work with parts solvents that contain alcohol and need to know about false positives
Your best bet would be to call the authority who does the testing and ask.
I was put on probation for 2 years for a DWI in wise county. My probation is over in August. I got a PI last week in Denton. I was wrongfully accused of being intoxicated at a bar and police arrested me. They were going to let me go then my friend intervened and took both of us. I told my PO last week and he said he's gonna send it over to Wise county. He called me later and told me to meet him this Friday. I was out because I was going to have a baby in 3 days and only had 3 beers. My baby was born 4 days ago. What will happen to me Friday when I see my PO?
No one here can tell you what you want to know. You could be arrested, so you should be prepared for that.
