What are the chances that my probation will be revoked?
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 Texas can I get a Class A Misdemeanor expunged if I served probation and the case was disposed?
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....
If I ditched my car to avoid dui charges, will I ensue other charges if I go pick my vehicle up?
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...
Can I fight this DUI?
I got pulled over for no light on my license plate. Officer asked me to step out of car and asked if I'd been drinking... I said I had a couple of drinks earlier (around 3pm this was 1:30am) he said since it's a bar night I'm going to do an eye test. Did that, never made me blow test. Gave me a DUI and let me get a ride home. I am under 21 but how can he prove I was under the influence when I wasn't pulled over for any type of impaired driving...
You can absolutely fight this case. The eye test he gave you was likely the Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus test. It is one...
I need a DWI attorney!
The attorney that I previously had was never showing up for coyrt and when he did he would always reset! And would call me in between resets and add more fees after he was paid for his services! He never let me know what was going on with my case and now he has withdrawn and I have to go to court in a week! I need help!
Retagging - you should use the Avvo "Find a Lawyer" tool to get an attorney. Best Wishes!
I got a DWI/POM I was not drunk and was not on marijuana but I was on synthetic marijuana can blood work show the synthetic
They did not see me smoking but they found the blunt on the floor of my car. My bond paper work just shows a DWI and nothin else. Can my blood work show the synthetic marijuana. And if dose not show up in my blood work will they drop all charges against me. I did not do good on my field sub. But I told them I was nervous
If they found the blunt in your car, that will suffice to charge you for possession. they may be waiting on a lab...
Pulled over and arrested for DWI in Carrollton, Tx.
Police officer followed me from a Race Trac parking lot, because I was looking down while sitting in car. Thought I was doing something illegal. He follows me for about a mile. I come to a red light that was turning green and rolled over white line to take right turn. He pulled me over, searched vehicle, no drugs or empty alcohol containers. Sobriety tests performed, had a broken foot, 32 degrees outside and asks me to remove my house slippers. Performed test on slanted surface at same time suffering from severe anxiety attack and diabetic. Took breathalyzer and read .10 and was arrested. Refused blood test on site, but at police station they drew blood and test was .07. Should I obtain an attorney who specializes in medical conditions and falsely accused DUI's?
Absolutely, there are some legal issues there that need to be addressed with a defense attorney.
