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?

It is possible that you may face charges of leaving the scene of an accident, if you admit to driving, but that is...
DUI Interlock System Requirement
I was arrested for a DUI in the state of TX and it appears as though I will be required to install an interlock system as part of my probation. I have two cars, one of which is my commute car with the other being mostly a weekend car. I really don't like the idea of installing this on my car and was wondering if it is possible to just install on my commute car and not drive the other? I have no intentions of driving without it but don't want to have to do both when I can just limit my driving to one.
The order will state that you are not to drive a vehicle unless it is equipped with an interlock device. You only need...
DWI Attorney is nonresponsive - getting scared.
I got charged with two dwi firsts within the span of a few months. Was going through a messy divorce. Both had very high BAC's one involved an accident where nobody was hurt. Moved out of state hired an attorney to take the case up. He keeps resetting the case but wont keep telephone appointments or call me back. What should I do? Is he going to drop the case? Have been seeing an alcohol treatment counselor and going to meetings hoping that may help my case. Thanks. Very worried here. Also any speculation as to what sentencing would be like would be helpful.
Your attorney can't just drop your case without givin yo Notice and an explanation. I suggest that you send him a...
