My son was arrested for DUI & spent a night in jail. He swears he wasn't drinking/drugs. The blood test should prove this.
He had just been in a college class & stayed afterwards to talk with his prof, who says he was fine. 40 min later arrested. Our problem is.....his court date is this Thursday, but the blood tests results won't be back for a couple more weeks. 1st time arrested....he was in shock.
Even if blood test results do not come back with any substance or alcohol, don't expect the prosecutor to just dismiss....

My son got a DUI and his attorney failed to appear at his court hearing. Does he need an attorney to request a public defender?
My son got a DUI in 04/13 and signed a plea agreement. His attorney was also his boss at a restaurant. He closed the business without paying my son which started an avalanche of financial problems, then he didn't show up at his hearing. He wasn't offered a public defender, even though he was unemployed, and for the most part homeless. He didn't know what to do, but he's been told if he puts myself on the docket they will put him in jail. A bench warrant has been issued. My son has been diagnosed with a mental illness, and he wasn't taking his medication when he signed the plea deal. This has sent him into a spiral and he makes his living with his car, so this has truly devastated his life.
Your son should engage counsel prior to surrendering on the warrant.
Will Texas recognize the 18 month interlock law (Erin Swezey Act) of Oklahoma when I move back to Texas?
I said no to a breathalyzer (dumb on my behalf), bad tribal knowledge led me to that decision. At the police station I read a card that stated that I would lose my license for 6 months, I was okay with that. I don't remember reading anything about an interlock for an additional 18 months after the 6 month suspension or I probably would have complied. In any case, I don't plan on being in Oklahoma these full 2 years. I know the revocation will be recognized but I can't find any information regarding this Erin Swezey Act.
If you have a suspended OK DR then you will not be able to obtain a TX DL until you can show you are cleared in OK.

My mom lost her husband to caner unexpectedly October 30th and while at the bank a few days ago a drunk driver hit her truck
The truck was totaled and her pets were inside. This was her husbands vehicle and all she had left of him. She about passed out when she came out of the bank to find her truck on its lid! She said she wished she had been in it. She has been thru hell. Her dog was injured also. Is she entitled to more than just blue book on the truck and vet bills? Im wondering about compensation for the mental distress she is under. So worried about her... just not fair what she's been thru. Thank you
If vehicle is totaled, fair market value, which is not the same as blue book, reimbursement of tag and tax on a pro...
