    Macy’s Answer

    This case has received a First Setting with the Court on February 17. The DA disposition is an internal code that has no significance to the case. If you call a local attorney, they can pull the case up and give you a little more information about the case. No one is going to know much, however, until they appear at court to meet with the DA and receive the discovery. Most of us offer free consultations. Just start calling around.

  • What will likely happen to me in this situation?

    How likely is it to get a dismissal or pretreat diversion if arrested on class A misdemeanor controlled substance and class b marijuana? Officer walked up on us smoking and claims he found another "blunt" rolled up in a friends car. He persuaded m...

    Macy’s Answer

    Dallas's policy is to not allow Pretrial diversion if the person has two cases--but they have been talked into making exceptions on some occasions. Pretrial diversion results in a dismissal of the cases so that they can be expunged from your record completely.

    What you need to do at this point is start interviewing local experienced attorneys. Most of us offer free consultations. Also stop smoking right away. You need to be prepared to pass UAs to help get your cases dismissed.

  • Attorney recommends to plea for 1st dwi

    My sister got a dwi 1st a little over a year from now. Her attorney she hired told her she needs to plea bargain because she was swaying in her video. She asked to see it and he told her he hasn't gotten a copy though. How did he see it then? He ...

    Macy’s Answer

    He may have viewed the video at the courthouse. However the DA is REQUIRED to give it to him. And she should demand to view it before making a decision. Her only options are to plea or go to trial. That is correct. Also a delay of this time period is not uncommon for a DWI in Dallas. She has a big decision to make. If she and her attorney cannot get on the same page she may need to seek new counsel.

  • Why did they arrest him? How can i get charges dropped?

    Someone is being held in jail for a crime they didnt do the charge is robbery the report doesnt have him as a suspect i have messages and witness that he never took nothing with no permission why is he still in jail what can i do

    Macy’s Answer

    He's in jail because the police have probable cause to believe he committed the offense. I have no idea what that evidence is and neither do you. You cannot get the charges dropped. He needs an attorney. If he cannot afford one, the court will appoint him one. That person will have access to all the State's evidence and can properly advise him and represent him.

    Macy’s Answer

    There are really way too many possible variables for any of us to tell you anything definitively. (Also there is no definitive when it comes to parole--that's up to the parole board.) I can tell you that if the judge ordered the sentences to run concurrently that means he is serving the 5 years and the 4 years at the same time (not 4 plus 5 equals 9 years). He probably has a lot more backtime credit on the probation case, which is why the DA gave him one year less on the new case.

  • My question is whether they can deny him a public defender? I need advice on how to proceed. I cannot not afford an attorney.

    Macy’s Answer

    Yes. It is within the Court's discretion to review an application for a court appointed attorney based on indigency. If he is in custody, he is assumed indigent and unable to afford an attorney. If he is out on bond, the Court will review his application to determine if it thinks he can afford to hire his own attorney. Some courts are more lenient than others. Some expect you to liquidate assets (eg, sell a car) or get a second job to pay for your own attorney. You certainly have no obligation to pay for his attorney.

    Macy’s Answer

    There is not enough information here to answer your question. It looks like you were placed on deferred. If you successfully completed it, that results in a sort-of dismissal. Typically you cannot expunge this from your record. However, the fact that you received a 90 day deferred and a $100 suggests you pled to a Class C. If that is the case, you should be able to expunge it from your record. You need to contact an attorney who practices in Dallas so that they can look into the details of your case and let you know definitively what your options are.

  • What can happen to my brother? Will an attorney be needed?

    My 14 year old brother inappropriately touches my 5 year old niece. The mom knows and is only going to talk to CPS. He has no criminal record. The mom doesn't want to file for charges.

    Macy’s Answer

    It's not up to the mom. CPS will be required to notify law enforcement. I would say chances are high he will be arrested. Your mom or dad should start interviewing attorneys who represent juveniles to get an idea of what to expect as well as their fees. If they cannot afford an attorney, he is entitled to a court appointed attorney. This is a very serious Charge that could affect him for the rest of his life.

  • what are my chances of getting community service, probation, a fine or possibly expunging of my record,ect?

    I just got charged with theft (class b misdemeanor) from target, merchandise added up to about 161.19,but it's my first case, I have a clean record. Switched the tags, and put cheap jewelry in a purse that I was purchasing.

    Macy’s Answer

    If this is your first offense you may qualify for a Pretrial diversion program that results in a dismissal of your case (which you could later expunge). You will have to hire an attorney to represent you (or apply for a court appointed attorney if you are indigent). Your attorney will obtain the states evidence, review it with you, and explain your options from there.

    Only the judge can lift the no contact order. Ask your husbands attorney the best way to request this.
