Is there any other option other than no contest for Public Intoxication. I want it off my record for the future.
I was driving home after a few drinks one night when my car broke down on the side of the road. I called my roadside assistance and waited in my car with the hazard lights on. A cop pulled over to see what the problem was. I told him and he said he smelled alcohol on my breath. So he gave me a breathalizer and it was .085. I did the pen and walking test and did fine on those. So he gave me another breathalizer and it was .088. He gave me a ticket for PI and I had a friend pick me up since I was so close to home. I'm no so worried about the ticket as I am how it will hurt my future. It's my first major offense and I'm scared I messed up everything. Is there any way of getting it dissmissed or something diffrent so I can get it off my record later? Please Help!
You always have the option of pleading not guilty and taking the case to court, and making the office testify that you...
Last night I was pulled over for speeding- I had some drinks earlier in the night and refused the breathalyzer.
I took the field sobriety test and the officer said he failed me because I started too soon. The officer failed to explain that that would equal an automatic arrest and license suspension. I assumed that they would take me to the station where I would be tested there- I know that the mobile units are very unreliable and didn't wish to incriminate myself further. Once at the station the officers refused to do any sort of tests. At about 6 a.m. I was laying on a mat on the floor and the officer who arrested me came into the room, started yelling about breakfast, and I didn't say anything- I was genuinely scared. He then kicked the mat (and my head in the process) as hard as he could yelling "you stupid drunk a**hole!". There was a camera in the room and a witness. What can I do with this?
You have outlined several issues that need addressing. I would suggest contacting an experienced DWI/DUI attorney....
If drinking non-alcoholic beer could I fail a UA (ETG) test ? I have read on-line where they are super sensitive and even the use of hand sanitizes could give a positive reading. I would hate to get my probation revoked for drinking non-alcoholic beer. I took UA yesterday morning.
ETG tests are very unreliable and are not considered accurate. Recently this issue came up in Smith County and the...

How much jail time can one expect to serve for multiple DWI/DWLI and a FTA in Brazoria County/Wharton County, Texas?
There are currently two HOLD/FTA/DWI charges pending, two HOLD/DWI charges pending and two HOLD/DWLI charges. The individual has a total of $67,500 in bonds, but can not afford to post bail, nor does the individual have the means to hire a lawyer. The indivuidual has previous DWI ,PI and one Intoxication Manslaughter charge from 2005. The individual was arrested last night for a PI, and had 6 warrants out of Wharton County, they have been transfered to the Brazoria County Jail. What can be expected going forward. They have stated that they will be in the BCJ for a maximum of 10 days, then transfered to Wharton, will have a trial and then be sent to state prision. Is this how the process will work and what can be done to avoid jail time, or to serve the least amount of time as possible.
With this man's EXTREMELY SERIOUS criminal history and multiple warrants, it will most likely be nearly impossible to...
