Your options are to 1) accept a plea bargain offer from the DA, 2) plead Not Guilty and have a trial, 3) do an "open" plea to the judge where you plead guilty but ask for something different than what the DA is offering. If you want to do an open plea, you need to be prepared to convince the judge that you don't need inpatient (successful completion of or at least current enrollment in an out-patient program will help tremendously). If you are this far along, you must already have an attorney. You need to speak with this person about your options in greater detail. I would also recommend that you expunge the no-billed and dismissed cases from your record as soon as the law allows. I suspect they are having an impact on how the DA views your drug habits.See question

Well you can't expunge a conviction. Is it possible you were placed on deferred probation? If so, you may be eligible to seal the record from public view by filing a Petition for Non-Disclosure. As you're learning, employers hate theft cases, so you'll certainly want to do this as soon as possible. You need to hire an attorney to make sure it's done properly (an improperly sealed record cannot be corrected, then you're really stuck with it). Attorneys set their own fees, so just call around until you find someone in your price range that you are comfortable with.See question

All the detective needs to issue a warrant is probable cause to believe a person committed an offense. The police are not required to notify a person when they issue a warrant. He is entitled to a bond. However, you may have to wait for him to be transferred to the county that issued the warrant for a bond to be set--or you can hire an attorney who practices in that county to go get a bond set. Now that he has been apprehended, the arresting agency will file the case with the DA's office (although this process may take a few months).See question

It depends on what he is charged with. For some felonies, there is automatic release after 3 business days if the case isn't filed. For other felonies, it is 10 business days.See question

Any usable amount of marijuana is enough to convict a person of possession. The more important questions are whether the initial detention and subsequent search were legal. And regardless, if the person doesn't have a criminal history, do they qualify for a pretrial diversion program that guarantees a dismissal? The person accused needs to start interviewing local attorneys to discuss his facts in greater detail.See question
Class A misdemeanor theft enhanced to third degree for preventing theft detector from sounding also enhanced with prior thefts DA a is threating to add a third enhancement for other priors a robbery an criminial mischief making it habitual
There are jurisdictional enhancements
And sentencing enhancements. A class A theft can be enhanced to a state jail felony with a prior theft conviction. State jail felonies can have sentencing enhancements based on prior felony convictions. It does not matter if these sentencing paragraphs are not on your original indictment because it can be easily amended to add them. However, two enhancement paragraphs cannot put a state jail felony at a 25-life punishment range. I know you are saying you are charged with a third degree, but I keep referring to state jail because I cannot see how a class A becomes a third degree in the way you are describing. However I am not looking at your case specifics, so there certainly may be something I'm misunderstanding. If you have an attorney, that person is in the best position to review your current and potential enhancements with you.

There should not be any confusion on this issue. You are not a convicted felon if you successfully completed deferred probation.
You cannot expunge a case that you did probation on. You may be able to seal the record from public view in a couple of years. The waiting period to seal the record on a felony is five years from the date you were discharged from probation. Contact an attorney when that time approaches to discuss this in more detail.See question
What does "A.T.G.O.B" stand for in a Texas drug possession charges?
It's an Affidavit to Go Off Bond by the surety. This person likely has a warrant for his/her arrest. They need to contact their bonding company immediately to try to straighten this out. If the bonding company won't go back on the bond, the defendant needs to talk to his/her attorney about getting a new bond set and posted ASAP.See question
