White Settlement Law

My son-in-law was arrested and charged with DUI/child endangerment under 15. Bond was set on a Sun. at 30,000.
They released him the next day. Daughter said blood results showed no drugs. Is this possible? Wouldn't blood tests take longer? Is it possible my daughter was lying and she probably bailed him out.
I don't see a relationship between bond/bail and a statement about blood tests. Logically, you can have one without...
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...
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...
Interlock Require but not Identified as Required?
I recently received a DWI in Tarrant county with a BAC above .15 which requires an interlock device be installed. I've already had my day in court however my probation paperwork clearly does not have the interlock requirement box checked. Classes and fines are checked however not the interlock device. This is the paperwork I signed as part of my deal and will be pro riding to my probation officer. Also, not sure if this is relevant however my license was not suspended which my lawyer indicated could be possible if they simply forgot. I'm asking purely for second opinion purposes however is the interlock still required and if my license was not suspended should I not receive the funds back that were provided for the license suspension? Thanks in advance.
Call DPS and make sure your license is not suspended, The interlock may have of been condition of bond. When you go...
Is it legal for police to refuse to let me do a blood test if I offer to give a blood sample instead of a breathalyzer?
I was driving home to Haslet Tuesday night from a friends house in Watauga. I had just picked up some food and was eating and driving and I guess I was swerving a little bit. I was pulled over and I refused to do a PBT. I was arrested. At the station I refused a breathalyzer but offered to do a blood test. They told me I could not do a blood test and that I had to do the breathalyzer. I still refused and they put me in jail for 4 days and took my license.
It is perfectly legal AND, you can expect a 6 month driver's license suspension for refusing the breath test. You CAN...
DWI (0.15) First Offense Question
I just received a DWI in TX (0.15 BAC) first offense. I'm concerned about potential jail time and how common that is for first time offense for starters. How common is it for a lawyer to be able to avoid jail time in favor of probation? I'm a single parent and this is my main concern. Also, how common is it that I will receive a interlock requirement? My other question is that I am planning a potential move to Missouri. How does this impact the process?
