    Your attorney knows what he's doing. Your question is too general to answer. Trials unfold many different ways. You need to have a sit down with your attorney or hire a different one.

    No. The state has two years to file a misdemeanor. If you are going to court, it is almost certainly already filed. They do not have to have a video to prosecute you. They may prefer it, but it is not required. You need to hire a defense attorney to represent you in this matter.

    Why in the world are you representing yourself in a felony jury trial? You need to either hire one or try to qualify for a court appointed attorney. Unless you're just not really concerned about a felony conviction. No one can guarantee what a jury will do. But your chances will be infinitely better will an experienced attorney handling your case.

  4. Got a DUI in Texas and refused the breathalyzer. The officer did not show up at the ALR hearing, but the judge did not dismiss

    A continuance is completely at the judges discretion. In my experience, if the dps asks for a continuance, they get one. But only one. My clients are always happy when I get a dismissal this way, but it is more advantageous to your dwi defense if the officer does show and your attorney gets to cross examine him on the record. You need to trust your attorney more than your own online research.

    It doesn't matter how you pled, it matters what level of offense it was and how the case was disposed of. If you did deferred on a Class C you can expunge it. If you did deferred on a higher level theft, you should be able to seal the record. You should contact an attorney who practices in your county to look into this.

    He doesn't have to plead guilty. Only his attorney who has reviewed the states evidence and is familiar with the facts of his case can properly advise him.

    Probably. They might not start out offering it, but your attorney can probably get them there. They're highest priority is getting restitution for their victim. And you can't pay the money back if you're in prison. I would start interviewing attorneys now. Occasionally I have been able to prevent similar cases from being filed by reaching an agreement with the employer directly. It is rare but possible (especially if they haven't filed a report yet). Start calling attorneys asap.

    You need to hire an attorney. Fees vary greatly and many offer payment plans, so do not assume you cannot afford one. If you're county has a pretrial diversion program, this results in an outright dismissal that can be expunged from your record. Or if the DA will reduce it to a class C with deferred, you can also expunge that. An expunction gets you back to a clean record. This is your ultimate goal. Theft cases can be devastating when trying to seek employment.

    He is wrong. You will need to expunge it if you want to return to a clean record.

  10. Was is a typical penalty for a 1st DUI charge?

    There is no typical. The outcome of your case depends on the facts, the DA assigned, the judge' court you are in, and the work of your attorney. You have the right to plead not guilty and set your case for trial. DWIs are technical cases and there are many ways to beat them. A plea to a DWI means a permanent conviction on your record, seven years of increased insurance rates, and $3,000 in DPS surcharges.
