    A vehicle stop does not require probable cause. It only requires an articulable reasonable suspicion of criminal activity ie. traffic violations like speeding, etc.. Even a missing light bulb or failing to signal 100 feet before a turn is a good stop. If the officer did not articulate the violation in his report, you have a good chance to have any evidence including testimont of the officer supressed. Historically, deals get better the closer you get to trial. The problem with DWI cases is...

    Your lawyer is doing a great job for you. I was able to get a very similar deal recently and I advised my client to take it. As an experienced trial lawyer, I always feel that I can get an aquittal. However, juries are a mystery and no matter how well I do jury selection, I can never be sure that the jury panel answered the questions truthfully. District Attorney's rarely drop sex cases because they have a victim and their family to deal with. Victims Advocate groups have gained great power...

    You need to request a court appointed attorney. You are facing either a State Jail Felony Theft or Unauthorized Use of a.Motor Vehicle. It carries a 6 month - 2 year sentence.

    You may only expunge records that have not been pled guilty to or aquitted or dismissed without any admittance of guilt. Read Mr. Sullivans answer regarding Non-Disclosure. It is concise and accurate.

    You can be charged with anything. But the District Attorney should not accept the case because the statute of limitations has run. Further, the facts do not support a conviction.

    I dont understand why you expect a dismissal at this point. Probably not going to happen. A good criminal lawyer probably wont take the case if thats what you expect. However, if you post an appeal bond to move the case to the higher court, there's a chance the.case wull get lost in the shuffle by the overwhelmed county attorney.

    It depends. If you were on deferred adjudication probation (not convicted) you can file a Motion for Non-Disclosure. In most cases, a Judge will grant the motion. However, there are several offenses for which you cannot have your case wiped clean from public view. For example: Indecency with a Child and other more serious crimes. I assume your offense was not one of these because you had such a low number of months on probation. If you are convicted --- you are stuck with it. Learn how to...

    You can write the TDPS at the address below and request a form that will request a background check. It costs $15.00 to get the results. You will need to go to your local law enforcement agency and get a new fingerprint card. Further, it has been my experience that the nursing board will not restrict you from being a nurse for the minor violations of which you speak.
