Texas law requires that your daughter be represented by a lawyer.See question

I got arrested for DWI. Police took my license, performed an in room breath test. Next day I was released on bond and the license was given back to me as-is. I don't know the test results. Does this mean my license will not be affected or sho...
It all depends on the test results. If you blew over .08 then you will have an ALR.See question

Your husband needs an experienced criminal lawyer to get him through this situation. If he is not current on all technical aspects of his probation, he needs to get current.
The ASFV case must be favorably resolved, ie. dismiissed or an aquittal or there will be problems on any MTAG that goes forward.
I was given a citation for theft (under 50$) which to my understanding will turn into a class c misdemeanor. I am guilty but this is my first and only offense so can I request a deferred disposition and if so are my possibilities of receiving a de...
You are certainly eligible for a deferred on a class C theft. If the case is in Denton Municipal Ct., Ms. Berry will more than likely work with you.
In the unlikely event she won't agree to deferred, you should absolutely have a lawyer help you. A theft conviction will hurt more than most other type of offenses in the long run.
It is important to get deferred so the option of an expunction remains open.
I did something really stupid over this last weekend and got myself into some trouble. I had a lapse of judgement and shoplifted $30 so it's still petty theft. I've never done anything like this before (and I'm intending on keeping it that way) a...
You need to request deferred from the municipal prosecutor. If the prosecutor will not offer deferred, you absolutely need to hire a lawyer. A theft conviction is a crime of moral turpitude that will follow you forever.
You need to weigh what is in your best interest in the long run.

The decision to go forward with criminal charges is entirely up to the State.
The most important thing for you to do is to be honest if you are questioned by law enforcement. You do not, of course, have to discuss anything with them.
Your friend needs to also be honest with law enforcement. Her boyfriend needs to have an experienced criminal lawyer consult with him immediately.See question
