  • Is it legal to give drug test every other week on bond

    On bond with my parents and they are trying to cause problems for me

    Wayne’s Answer

    Yes, it's legal, if it's in your bond. They can go much farther than this. If the judge says it's okay, then they can do it. The point is to do what it takes to protect society and yourself.

  • Can a felony Insurance Fraud charge be reduced to a misdemeanor?

    I know someone who has been arrested several times and has wiggled his way out. he has now been arrested for Felony Fraud. Someone told me he cannot plea bargain this. Is that the case?

    Wayne’s Answer

    Not sure who the person is that told you this, but this is likely not accurate that a plea negotiation can't be reached. A law enforcement interviewer may say something like this to see if they can get someone to give information that will harm them in the process. While the DA can say that they are not willing to discuss it, I don't see it with this charge.

  • How much time has to be served on 15 year sentence non aggrevated charge?

    My fiancé was charged with possession of a CS <400 g while still being on parole. He is considered a habitual offender but has always been a trustee for his good behavior. How much time will he have to serve before coming home?

    Wayne’s Answer

    There are points on both sides that will be considered, the most important one is that he is a habitual offender. The parole board is concerned about the safety of the community more than anything else, so with the fact that he committed another felony while on parole doesn't make it look good for his potential release, regardless of whether or not he has been a trustee.

    It is possible, but you need to contact the court immediately. You can also get an attorney who will be able to help you with this for a reasonable amount that might be able to get this for you, if you are unable to do so.

  • Dwi and alr problem

    Wayne’s Answer

    You really need an attorney to help you with your DWI case. I am not saying that you cannot recognize an easy case from a hard one, but we as criminal defense attorneys see it all the time--and they are usually wrong. If the officer had to get a warrant to get your blood, it is generally because you refused to do so voluntarily. Since the police officer testified at the ALR hearing that you refused, you can bet that they will be testifying in court to this same thing. And, yes, they are quite convincing on the stand with that evidence. Can you get this dismissed? If you come up over the limit, don't bet on it. Expect an even smaller chance, if you attempt to handle this yourself. Be wise and hire an attorney so you do potentially hurt yourself and regret it for the rest of your life.

  • Lawyer vs. Appeal lawyer

    Since my brother caught a federal case will he do better with a federal lawyer or a appeal lawyer

    Wayne’s Answer

    No matter how you look at it, he will do better with a federal criminal defense attorney than he would with any other option. If you are looking at for a an attorney to handle an appeal, then you have already lost, and are generally attempting to argue that some mistake of law has taken place--often a very small chance of success.

  • I got arrrsted for theft of 50 dollars and had a warrant for credit card abuse, what is the worst I can get?

    I was arrested for theft of 50 dollars but already had a warrant for my arrest for credit card abuse in El Paso Texas.

    Wayne’s Answer

    The theft under $50 dollars is a class c misdemeanor punishable by a fine of up to $500, but the credit card abuse, can be charged in Texas, as a state jail felony that carries a penalty of 180 days to two years in a state prison and a fine of up to $10,000. Additionally, if the offense was committed against an elderly person, the charge may be increased to that of a third degree felony. A third degree felony carries a penalty of 2-10 years in a state prison and a fine of up to $10,000. Get a criminal defense attorney as soon as you can, so you can possibly make these numbers smaller.
