Paris Law

In 2011 I was put on one year probation for a class b misdemeanor. I couldn't pay the fees and didn't have transportation at the time (now I wish I would have just sat out the 90 days in jail) anyway I just kind of set it on the back burner stupid I know and they filed a motion to revoke in August of 2012, it is now Feb of 2014 and I turned myself in last night and bonded out today. It's not that I was really "running" as I haven't moved, I've lived at the same address for almost 7 years, I am trying to get this all taken care of and behind me. What are the chances that they will revoke and I will go to jail... I have a good job I don't want to loose and 2 kids (7 years and 2 months) I can pay all my fees now... What are the chances they will revoke my probation?
That question is best answered by a local attorney. I practice in some counties where they would give you some jail...
In 1994 at the age of 19 I was arrested for DWI. The case was dropped to a Class A Misdemeanor and I pleaded Nollo Contendre and served one year probation. The staus on my record shows that the case was disposed/CSCD. Can this case be expunged or do I have to file for non-disclosure?
Hmm. DWI is currently a class B misdemeanor and it was at the time of your arrest. Class A is a more serious charge....
I got my car stuck in a ditch and I had to ditch my car because I had a few drinks before the happening. It was towed to a storage and towing facility.
It is possible that you may face charges of leaving the scene of an accident, if you admit to driving, but that is...
I have not been convicted. I'm still in a discovery stage of it with my attorney. Just curious if it will show up on my background check considering I have not been convicted.
It should show up that you have been "charged". It should not show up in a check for convictions. The type of record...
I was in a wreck in 2008, which resulted in 2 back surgeries, and knee surgery, so I was prescribed pain medication for a few years. After all surgeries, and pain management, I was put on Buprenorphine, to help body adjust, and also for acute back pain management. Every Rx I've had, were 100% legitimate. I was arrested for a 2nd DWI in 2013, my first DWI was in 2002. My probation officer wants a letter from my doctor explaining the need to be on this medication, and my PO said she wants to make a plan to get me off of this medication. I've have several UA's, and all were 100% clean. So I don't understand what the problem is. If it doesn't fail any of the "testing for" medications/substances, why is it an issue? Is she allowed (legally) to make decisions for my medical treatment?
Your PO is not a doctor and has no say in your medical care. As long as the medications are prescribed to you and you...
What are the chances of me being able to stay out of jail?
Not good, unless you can win an acquittal on this one.
This is my very first DWI, and I plan on pleading no contest. I was wondering if I needed to hire an attorney or if it'd be okay to use the court appointed attorney.
It's up to you. Do you want a lawyer who has time to speak to you and spend time on your case? Hire a lawyer. If you...
