My DUI happened after an accident that put me off driving entirely. In my 21y.o. naïveté I thought I could just hand everything over to an attorney and have the case handled. Years passed and I eventually realized my mistake. I'm finally ready to tackle this issue, but I can't seem to find any info about cases as old and dormant as mine.
I would assume you have a warrant out on the DUI and a warrant will toll any statute of limitations issue. You really...
IL: Sec. 11-501. Driving while under the influence of alcohol, other drug or drugs, intoxicating compound or compounds or any combination thereof. TX : Sec. 49.04. DRIVING WHILE INTOXICATED. (a) A person commits an offense if the person is intoxicated while operating a motor vehicle in a public place.
Intoxication in Texas can be from many other substances other than alcohol. The Texas penal code defines "intoxication"...
i live in austin texas, and i am in orlando doing a contract project at the convention center. I jsut got a dui, and it says I have 10 days to dispute it and i can get a hardship license. It says my license wil be suspended for up to a year. If my drivers license was issued in texas does that mean that the same thing will happen in Texas, and if so can I get a hardship license?
Yes, although there is always the possibility that it will take time or perhaps get lost,, but plan on getting a...
After being charged with DWI in Dallas, TX, I relocated to CA for work (I maintain residences in both states). I have already served a six month ALR suspension. I am looking to make a plea agreement which would result in a conviction on my record. Will my TX license be suspended again? How difficult would it be to reinstate? Would it be better to obtain a CA license before making the plea? Would my CA license be suspended in this event? What would the process be to reinstate it?
If this is your first DWI you will not have an additional suspend ouch you plead to probation. So you would have no...
I am going for 3 months and so far the only response I've gotten was "It's like Kindergarten. You get colored shirts which state your risk level, can't touch anyone or get out of line. There's nap time and rec time and meetings.". I am nowhere near satisfied with that answer. My preferred response has to do with what kind of people I will be dealing with, and if there is a risk (like in jail) of me having to stand my ground which will earn me more time. I do not want to be there longer than I have to, and I think it's complete trash that I have to go in the first place considering I no longer drink and I still attend my AA meetings. This is screwing me out of a job, which will in turn screw my girlfriend on finances. Also, does my time in count toward probation time? Thank you.
I have never heard of SAFPF being a 3-month program. I believe it is usually 6 months with up to a 3-month halfway...
Hello, I have no priors, am an undergrad about to graduate, and in the mental health docket. I was given the option of pretrial diversion, which to my understanding is new in the county. I was arrested in December for Xanax misuse. However, I have shown many changes, and it was the county attorney who recommended it, not the prosecutor. On the 22nd of May, I meet with a counselor who will determine my eligibility. However, my questions are as follows: 1. Do I self-incriminate on information they do not know? Ie. my blood results have not come back 2. How long does one have to stay in the program? Is it a year, 6 months, etc? 3. After this, how long before I can have it expunged from my record? I understand two years per Texas Penal Code but know it differs by county. Thank you!
Pretrial diversion programs are different in every county. I recommend you contact a lawyer in Bell County to answer...
What would the defense be and am I looking at jail time or what's the least penalty the court may give?
Hard to say with so little information. Could be charged with child endangerment and DWI at a minimum. If child not...
