    Did a shady Texas judge help protect one of his own from a drunk driving charge - and does video evidence now show his colleague's guilt? Texas judge Nora Longoria was arrested and charged with drunk driving in July, but she was let off the hook last month by fellow judge Rolando Cantu, who reportedly marked "other" as the reason for dismissing the case against her. Despite the information available, Hidalgo County District Attorney Rene Guerra told local paper the Monitor that there was not enough evidence to prosecute Longoria.

McAllen Law

My husband wants to get his citizenship so I can get my green card. But the problem is that he got arrested on 2012 for reckless driving and recently got a DWI. My question is when will he be able to apply for citizenship to the USCIS? And also will I be able to get my green card if I'm living here illegally, even though I entered the country with a tourist Visa? Or there's nothing to do about it.?
Five years of Good Moral Character are required. The rest is a matter of facts including whether you would be able to...
I got pulled over for speeding 15 miles over the speed limit, but I still got arrested for DWI even when I passed the Breathalyzer test and had no alcohol in my system. I also had a specimen of my blood taken. Will there be other substances found in my blood even when I did not admit to taking any drugs in my system? This is also my first offense. What happens next?
A full tox screen will be run on your blood and if you show any positive finding for a narcotic drug or pot in all...
I was arrested I refused the test,they eventualy got a warrant and drew blood from me. I'm out on bond. I remember the cops telling me that it will enhance or really hurt my case. obe more thing I have a dwi conviction more than five years old will this count as a second offense?
Texas law requires you to take a blood or breath test if you are arrested for a DWI. Texas’s “implied consent” law says...
can you help!!
If indeed both DWI arrests were "dismissed" by the court, then the adjudication is a non-conviction. Your best course...
I got an order of expungement in early October for a DUI arrest with no conviction. I was wondering how long it will take for me to be clear ?
Once the order has been entered by the court, it may take some time for all agencies with records of the arrest (DPS,...
Let me explain this a little bit more. In 2011 I was charged with DUI, but I was never convicted because it was dismissed. Two years later I seeked an expungement and spoke with a lawyer. I ended up getting a signed order of expungement and now Im just wondering what happens next? It was signed on September 30th, so almost two months ago, here in Texas. What do the courts do? What about DPS? My lawyer tells me that an FBI background check will not show this. Is that true? I ask because I eventually want to be a nurse, so I don't know if the boards can see this expunged case?
If you got it expunged, then it will usually take a couple of months for it to be fully "erased" from your record....
I was placed on 6month misdemenor probation for petty theft obviously I didnt stick around to do so , I also have unpaid tickets that went to court and court fees I was on a payment plan but since I moved I fell back on payments so I have a purge as well , I had my license suspended and taken away for two yrs on a possession charge but that was years ago .
The states do "talk" to each other.
