    Wayne’s Answer

    They are going to be done separately. He will do the federal time first. If he gets paroled from the feds, there may be a warrant/detainer hold waiting for him. He would then be shipped to a proper State facility to address the warrant for parole violation.

    Unfortunately, when "jokes" go too far, this is all too often the result. Count on some jail time. And have your friend very carefully consider not to let any jokes get out of had a again, or he will likely be looking at the State charging him as an habitual offender. This is no joke.

    Wayne’s Answer

    Because CPS is considered an "agency" of law enforcement, they can make that request. That doesn't mean it will be transferred, but an attorney would be able to help in this regard.

  • Tarrant County Labor Detail?

    What happens when someone misses work time on labor detail for Tarrant County? Not on probation, was to do 15 days and pay a fine.

    Yes, usually when you miss time on a labor detail they have to serve the jail time remaining. You will likely not be able to get a better outcome doing this on your own. Get an attorney and have them help you.

    Wayne’s Answer

    I agree. Depending on the facts of your car and your criminal history, with your attorney's help, you may be offered something which would allow you to have your case dismissed after a probationary period.

  • Attempted capital murder charges for shooting a police car. can the charges be reduced? this is his first offense.

    if the suspect has had abandonment issues will that help reduce the sentence. Also, is there an alternative to prison such as a mental jail.

    Wayne’s Answer

    The charges are not likely to be reduced, based on the slim details given here. A trial on sentencing is where abandonment issues might be considered in assessing punishment, but again, no real details.

  • How do I find out if I have any outstanding warrants before going to visit my boyfriend in jail?

    Not sure if I have any old traffic tickets that are in warrant status

    Wayne’s Answer

    If you failed to appear on any of the traffic violations, an alias warrant will be filed as a matter of course. If you have any traffic violations in which you had an agreement to pay and failed to fulfill your payment obligation, a capias warrant will be issued.

    1995 I was put on deferred probation for 10 years in Texas I failed to complete the probation due to being young and stupid. In 1999 I moved to Iowa and built a better life for myself I got married and had a child never picked up any more charges ...

    Being "young and stupid" has been the downfall of many after they have grown up. Unfortunately, the consequences of those youthful indiscretions tend to follow us the entire way. You need to address the failure to complete probation rather than assuming it just disappeared into the ozone. It can definitely be a hinderance to the potential job.
