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.

My husband got a DUI in Gregg Co. But he was already on probation for a DUI in San Patricio Co. Now there is a MTR.
He was returning home from a working trip and after dropping off a co-worker in Longview he drank (he was sober for 5.5 years.) His favorite brother-in-law had died suddenly while he was on his working trip, if this matters. He came home and did okay for a little while with probation, however they finally gave him an MTR. I believe that one time traces of alcohol were found in his urine. At any rate he is in San Patricio jail waiting on his hearing. He has 2 attorneys, one for the DUI (Gregg Co.) and one for the MTR (San Patricio Co.). His attorney here says that he is working on a workable solution with the other attorney that will satisfy both counties. I will testify for him at his hearing. My question is this what can I expect at this hearing? What are the different kinds of Rehab?
San Patricio county likes to use their RTC facility. (Residential Treatment Facility) It's an inpatient facility where...

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...
