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...
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?

Can I contact a prosecuting attorney in someone else's upcoming domestic violence/DWI case with info that affects the case?
I am currently in the middle of a child custody modification case with my ex-husband due to significant changes in our child's life since the divorce. He was served with a TRO last month and requested mediation, which is scheduled for next month. He moved in his girlfriend and her kids to live with him and our child within 3 weeks of the divorce. So far the past year and a half, they have turned his life upside down and have not followed original divorce decree (we are JMC), keeping my child from me on several occasions. I found out that the girlfriend living with my ex and child has been arrested once for a DWI and once for assault (domestic violence, causes bodily injury). She has a court date scheduled for next month. Does either of these cases have any bearing on the other?
The central question will be the best interests of the child. Keeping in mind that you can't choose your ex's paramours,...
