Your question is unclear. When you say he never "got the DUI taken care of," are you saying the DUI is still pending and was not addressed because he was in prison, or are you saying that he was sentenced to do certain things like get a chemical dependency evaluation, attend treatment classes, pay fines, etc., but never did them because he was in prison? More information is needed. Your husband should consider hiring an experienced DUI attorney to address these matters for him. Good luck.
If you are questioning whether you are likely to be extradited, it depends, and your situation appears to be complicated by a number of factors. Some warrants are extraditable; some are not. Some states limit the scope of their warrants to extradition from surrounding states. The general rule is that a felony warrant is extraditable and misdemeanors from non-surrounding states are not. There are exceptions to the rule, and keep in mind that whether you are arrestable is very different than...
If your friend is indigent, he should apply for a federal public defender, who will handle his criminal case for free. If the public defender's office has a conflict, it will be assigned to a private attorney who takes federal public defense cases. The local Clerk of Court's office will have information on how to apply for a federal defender. Best of luck to your friend.
Choosing a good attorney to handle a serious matter like a federal kiddie porn case can be difficult. There are plenty of ratings websites, AVVO included, that can provide you some starting point.

Not only should you be looking for a "good" attorney, you should be looking for the "right" attorney for you. Best of luck to you.
The short answer is "it depends." You were represented by counsel and appeared to sign a negotiated settlement agreement. If the time to appeal the award has expired, your options to reopen the judgment are very limited. You may have redress against your former attorney. You should contact an experienced family law attorney licensed in your state to discuss this matter. Good luck.
There are really two issues in your question: (1) when should you move forward with your state case; and (2) how to get the matters ran concurrently. The federal government typically will not run its sentence concurrently with a state sentence, but a state can run its sentence concurrently with the federal case. Under federal law, you can get credit for time served so long as that time is not credited against another sentence. State laws differ on how credit can be applied. Your post does...
Whether you can transfer probation from one state to another is typically governed by the Interstate Compact and the terms of your criminal judgment and probation. If your probation is governed by the Compact, Oklahoma would need to approve the transfer before you'd be allowed to move. Your probation officer or attorney will have additional information about this process. Good luck.
Your inquiry is unclear. More information is needed before providing you with any information about the validity of the court order for you to serve 10 days in jail. You should find a competent criminal defense lawyer licensed in Texas to address your questions. Try using the AVVO "find a lawyer" search. Best of luck.
In terms of criminal charges, threats are typically charged out as either a felony terrorizing or misdemeanor menacing. The punishment varies with the seriousness of the threat and the neighbor's criminal history. The timeline for proceedings from charges to resolution is usually 3-4 months.
If your neighbor is threatening you, you should consider reporting it to law enforcement. You can also seek a disorderly conduct restraining order. If you have questions, you should consult with an...
