    A COP PLANT DOPE ON ME AND I WAS PLACED ON PROBATION THEN THE SAME COP WAS ARRESTED AND CONVICTED OF PLANT DOPE ON HIS WIFE AND OVER 20 CASES WERE DROPEDE CAN I GET MY PROBATION DISMISSED AND MY RECORD EXSPUNGED

    Evan’s Answer

    You really should sit down with a reputable criminal defense lawyer in your area and discuss this face to face. Here's why. The facts and circumstances of each case are different. However, while rare, dishonest law enforcement officers do exist. But, only a full examination of your situation will tell whether you have a hope to get your case re-opened. As far as expunction goes, whether that would be possible for a person who got there case re-opened would depend on what the result was after the case was re-opened.

    Evan’s Answer

    I agree with Richard Jones.

    I would add that a child's parents have a right to decide with whom that child associates. A 16 year old, even a 17 year old, is still a child in Texas.

    My son's dad got arrested and got burglary of habitation, he was drunk and got the crud beat out of him for it, he has also been to jail several other times for dwi, being drunk in public, drunk and fighting in public. What is he looking at when h...

    Evan’s Answer

    Burglary of a habitation with no prior felony convictions is either a second degree felony (2-20 years and up to a 10 thousand dollar fine) or a first degree felony (5-99 years or life and up to a 10 thousand dollar fine) depending on the facts. If a defendant has no prior felony convictions, probation would be an option if the sentence was 10 years or less. A probation without a finding of guilt would also be a possibility. What actually happens in any specific case is so dependent on the facts that its beyond what we can answer on avvo.

  • I have just found out that there is a warrant out for me...by searching the internet. I have been told it's a bond warrant.

    Supposedly I posted or signed bond papers for a man I don't know and I am sure someone has gotten my Id or thing. ..but a I have not did this for anyone...what should I do about this warrant. This warrant is dated back to 2007...it has never came...

    Evan’s Answer

    Generally, a warrant is issued for a person's arrest when he or she has been charged with a crime.

    If a person pays the bail bond fee for another person, that should not result in a warrant for the friend paying the bond fee, even if the person who is getting bonded out fails to appear for court.

    If the person who pays the bail bond fee also signs a guarantee with the bondsman that he or she will reimburse the bondsman for the bondsman's losses in having to pay off on the bond if the person in jail runs, then the friend could expect a demand for payment of the full amount of the bond if the defendant misses court and the bond gets forfeited.

    Not sure from your question what if any of the above applies to your situation. Best idea would be to speak briefly with a criminal defense lawyer. That is almost always a free visit. The lawyer should be able to sort out the situation for you. It's a bit complex to sort out on avvo.

  • Affidavit

    Charged with possession of a controlled substance but I was unaware there drugs in the vehicle. Owner is willing to take it, which affidavit do we need to fill out?

    Evan’s Answer

    Do it yourself criminal defense almost always seems to end in disaster.

    May I suggest that you seek the assistance of a reputable criminal defense lawyer in the community where you are charged.

    he has been in the US his whole life and has no criminal charges or anything , but I'm just 17 and he's 18 and we want to see if he can get his green card by marriage with me .

    Evan’s Answer

    This is an immigration law question.

    For an answer specific to your boyfriend, he really needs to speak with an immigration lawyer.

    You can find immigration lawyers close to you by using the avvo.com directory.

  • A friend of mine was trying to save his child from choking and was charged with injury to a child

    A friend of mine thought his child was choking and preformed a type of cpr for choking babies and is now being charged with injury to a child and maybe capitol murder he was only trying to save his child!!!!!!!

    Evan’s Answer

    Situations such as you describe really need immediate attention from a highly experienced, skilled, criminal defense lawyer.

    I concur with Mr. Johnston that representation for this sort of situation is expensive and very complicated. It can involve CSI type issues that require expert consultants and witnesses for the defense. It can involve legal issues that are far beyond the basic sorts of criminal law that most general practice lawyers would be familiar with.

    May I suggest an immediate consultation with such a lawyer in the community where the case you refer to is taking place?

  • I was placed on probation for deferred adjudication in 2001. Why is it saying disposition convicted and felony status: active?

    Burglary of a building, 3 years deferred adjudication probation, completed. Never got probation revoked but was put on intensive probation.

    Evan’s Answer

    When a deferred adjudication probation is successfully completed in Texas, the trial court does not enter a judgment of guilt.

    Yet, you say that you find your case listed as having been disposed of by a conviction.

    The two are inconsistent.

    My suggestion is that a reputable criminal defense lawyer in the community where you were placed on deferred adjudication needs to review the official file to determine what actually happened and to try to determine where the confusion lies.

    I would not imagine a lawyer charging a great deal for a basic review of the documents.

    Evan’s Answer

    My suggestion is that you meet with your lawyer and say to him or her what you put in your question. If you are not satisfied with the answers your lawyer has to your concerns, then you may wish to seek a second opinion from another reputable criminal defense lawyer who practices in the community where you are being prosecuted.
