For a warrant to be active involves many steps and communications between various offices. The court is not the right place to be calling. They can tell you whether they issued a warrant but not if it was activated or has remained active. If you want to know if you have an active warrant, call the Sheriff's Department or look at dallascounty.org under "wanted."See question
I was involved in a verbal altercation at my boyfriend's residence after we both consumed a lot of alcohol. While we were both trying to take possession of my cell phone it hit me in the face. He was shouting and told me I had to leave but still...
You cannot change the statement you have already given, but you can give an additional statement. The police may have already sent the case to the DA. Someone from the DA's office will be contacting you about the case. Ironically, talking to the DA is often unhelpful in family violence cases. Many victims call me, confused, frustrated, and even upset by the way they have been treated by the DA's office. The most effective way you can be helpful is by talking to his defense attorney about this. That person will advise you the best way to proceed depending on the facts of the case and the jurisdiction.See question
1st offense and not guilty what my husband says
Not all attorneys charge the same rate. Although $10,000 does not seem unreasonable for this offense, if you call more attorneys, you will likely find several that charge less and many that offer a payment plan. As to the issue of the court appointed attorney, see my answer to your previous question.See question
Court appointed attorney has only saw my husband 1 time for 3 minutes while in jail for over 60 days.
Unfortunately, you have no say in who your court appointed attorney is. If this is a felony, the attorney may be waiting for the indictment to come down. There's typically not much they can do before this happens. In other words, the attorney may not have any news for your husband. He is certainly welcome to send the court a letter complaining about the lack of communication from his attorney, but the reality is that the Judge is unlikely to give him a new one.See question
If a female gets a possession charge and gets released on a dry writ what does that mean.
In Dallas a person is automatically released on a dry writ after a certain number of days if the case is not filed (probably 3 business days in this case). This is a standing order of the district judges and happens without an attorney actually filing a writ. It is important for this person to know that the case will almost certainly still be filed. They are likely awaiting the return of the drug labs. When an indictment comes down a new warrant will issue and the person will be arrested again. This often surprises and confuses people because they assume the case "went away." The defendant should take advantage of this time to find an attorney. That person will monitor the case and stay on top of a new warrant. Most of us offer free consultations. Just start calling around.See question

Yes they can still charge you. They have at least two years to file the case. Nothing requires them to make an arrest immediately or to file an offense report immediately. If you are not comfortable working the case off, let them file it and hire an attorney to handle it for you.See question
He's on probation for robbery now. They say they have a video with him on it but they didnt caught him in the car or nothing they just stopped him when we were walking out the store and about to walk home
If he is charged with a new case while on probation, a probation violation will be filed. If he is on deferred he is entitled to a bond but it will likely be very high. The state will probably be seeking pen time on the robbery case, but if the evidence in the new case is week his attorney may be able to keep him out of the pen.See question

I'm not sure what your question is. If someone is threatening you, you can call and report this to the police. You can also sue him civilly if you can find an attorney willing to take the case. And obviously if you have been charged with a crime, you need a defense attorney representing you in that matter.See question
What could happen if I am guilty after have being granted bail?
This is a difficult question to answer because of the way you have worded it and the lack of information. Ultimately your worst case scenario in any case depends on the level of offense you are charged with. So you're looking at anywhere between 180 days in jail and life in prison. Probation is also often an option in lieu of jail or prison time. Probation comes with a wide variety of conditions depending on the nature and level of the offense and almost always includes a fine and community service hours.
If you have just posted bond you are a long way from this case being over. You will need hire an attorney, that person will receive and review the states evidence with you, and then they will be able to discuss options and the DAs offer in the case.
Most defense attorneys offer free consultations. You need to start calling around to find out about fees (which will vary greatly), discuss your case in more detail, and decide who you are most comfortable representing you. Best of luck.See question

Absolutely not. The detective is not "just trying to clear this up." The detective is building a case. I would never recommend that a person suspected of an offense meet with a detective without representation. You need to start interviewing local, experienced attorneys as soon as possible. The person you hire will review all of the facts with you in great detail and recommend from there whether you should meet with the detective at all (but it certainly would not be without your attorney present). You are likely being contacted by a detective in the Financial Crimes Unit of DPD. These are highly specialized detectives that handle primarily white collar crime cases like this. I cannot urge you strongly enough to seek counsel immediately.See question
