  • How can I get a deadly conduct charge seal are off my record

    I got a DWI about five to seven years ago and I took a deadly conduct charge because I had my own business and I couldn't get a DWI they were going to cancel the insurance on all my trucks I was supposed to have gotten deferred adjudication and I...

    Macy’s Answer

    If you successfully completed the probation you do not have a conviction. Because it was deferred. This also means you should be eligible to seal the record from public view by filing a petition for non disclosure. Any local defense attorney should be able to do this for you.

  • What is my max sentence and can I get this charge reduced or off my record?

    I went into Walmart and stole $300-$400 worth of items. They caught me right outside the exit. I was cooperative with the employees and the officers. I didn't give anyone problems. I sat in jail for two days and got out on a Pre-Trial Release bond...

    Macy’s Answer

    This is a class B misdemeanor with a maximum sentence of 180 days in jail or two years probation and a $2,000 fine. If this is your first arrest you may qualify for a Pretrial Diversion program that results in a dismissal. You will need an attorney. If you cannot afford one, you can apply for a court appointed attorney.

  • Can a theft charge (not conviction) > $50 ($65 actually) successfully revoke my dwi 3 probation?

    I've had a motion to revoke filed in rockwall county where I'm on felony probation, courtesy supervised in Tarrant, for dwi 3. I was charged for a $65 theft that I did not commit and my attorney says it will be dropped. A capias has been issued by...

    Macy’s Answer

    Of course. Any time you are on probation and are arrested on a new charge a pv can be filed. You need to hire an attorney who practices In Rockwall. That person will try to get you a bond set so that you can remain out of jail while the pv is pending.

  • Can someone get time served from a crime prior to incarceration?

    My son was arrested for theft 17 months ago. Sentenced to 12 months state jail time. He has since got out and maintained employment and stayed out of trouble. They just showed up at the house the other morning as he was leaving for work and picked...

    Macy’s Answer

    No. He will not get time served. He cannot get credit for time that he served before the cases were filed--even if the offense occurred before sentencing in the other case. Unless you want him sitting there for several months, I would bond him out and hire an attorney to try to keep him out.

  • What does a first setting mean? Does the defendant have to attend

    A person is charge with possession of a firearm and is on parole

    Macy’s Answer

    In almost every felony court in Dallas the defendant is required to appear at all settings. At the first setting the case just gets rolling--the defense attorney lets the court know she has been retained, she requests discovery from the DA, and sometimes she receives an initial recommendation at that setting. Obviously if you don't already have an attorney you should start interviewing people immediately.

  • I was charged with class B misdemeanor criminal mischief. What do I do next?

    I did something foolish. I smashed in my ex's car window after a major fight. I just got a court summons and I am being charged with a class B misdemeanor for criminal mischief. What I did was totally unlike me and this is my first offense. I have...

    Macy’s Answer

    What you do next is start interviewing attorneys. Interview a few until you find one you are comfortable with. You will probably find that fees vary greatly. Because you do not have a record there may be a way to get the case dismissed. If the case is dismissed you will be able to expunge it from your record completely. If you receive a deferred probation, you will be able to seal the record from public view. There are waiting periods for both of these. The first thing you need to worry about is finding the right attorney to represent you. Just start calling around.

  • Does my family member have a case about a DWI charge if her blood alcohol was .03 and was just sleeping in her car while running

    She was parked in front of her cousins house and was 2 streets down from her house. They woke her up because her car was on with the lights on. She had been up for about 20 hours straight before they made her take a field test that she failed. The...

    Macy’s Answer

    Of course she should fight it. It is hard (but not impossible) for the State to win a DWI with a .03 BAC. She may also need to have a hearing on the issue of whether she was even operating the vehicle. There is case law on both sides of this issues and it will largely depend on whose court she is in. DWI convictions are permanent and extremely expensive. She needs to start interviewing local DWI attorneys immediately.

  • Is expunging my MIC citation the only way to get it completely off my record, and how does this compare to deferred disposition?

    I recently received an MIC citation, I am 20 years old. I was wondering how to completely get this off of my record so it is unable to be seen by Pre-employment background checks. How soon after the disposition process can I file for expunging the...

    Macy’s Answer

    Yes. You'll want to and need to expunge this from your record completely. You cannot do this unless you first successfully complete a deferred disposition.

  • Once the da gives the procescutor a case will a charge be filled or dropped

    It's a child sex crime

    Macy’s Answer

    The DA is the prosecutor. So I'm not sure what your question is. It is up to the DA's office whether to accept a case. Typically on a child sex case, they are going to accept it and present it to the Grand Jury for indictment. The Grand Jury can no bill the case, but more often than not they are going to indict it and send to a trial court DA. At that point anything can happen--dismissal, plea bargain, trial. Obviously this is a very serious allegation and you need legal counsel immediately.

  • I was charged with 3rd degree assault in an altercation with my wife a few nights ago. I am also on probation for 2nd DWI.

    Macy’s Answer

    I'm not entirely sure what your question is. Almost certainly a probation violation will be filed. You will want to hire an attorney as soon as possible to stay in front of this. Your attorney can get a bond set on the pv and arrange for you to do a walk through so that you do not actually have to go into custody.

    Another reason to hire an attorney sooner than later is that they may be able to prevent an indictment. You won't be notified about a court date until you are already indicted.

    You need to start talking to local experienced defense attorneys as soon as possible to start preparing your defense in both cases.
