    The answer to your question is yes. However, there is a lot more that goes into answering the question than that. Galveston is an interesting county. As the others have mentioned, you should hire someone that is familiar with DWI laws. You should also hire an attorneythat has extensive experienced in Galveston County. Who you hire could make th difference in you being convicted of a felony or not.

    If you are talking about a true 12.45 plea, that means that the sentencing court took the evading arrest charge into consideration when assessing punishment for your DWI. These are done infrequently in Texas.

    If arrested in Harris County, the processing time can be long. I would contact a reputable bondsman and more importantly a quality DWI lawyer. A good place to start looking for a DWI attorney is with the National College for DUI Defense.

    Unfortunately, the answer is no you can not get the convictions removed from your record or sealed. The only time you can legally have your records sealed in Texas is if you have successfully completed a deferred adjudication probation. If you have been to prison, there is not a way to seal your record.

    If you are looking for a DWI class for a first offender, there is a 12 hour class that is required as a condition of probation to avoid a driver's license suspension. There is also a repeat offender DWI class that is 30 hours long.

  7. Can someone get a passport to travel into mexico with dui felony?

    Answered over 4 years ago.

    To my knowledge there is no restriction on obtaining a US Passport with a felony DWI conviction. The real question is will the other country (Mexico) let the US citizen into Mexico? There are problems traveling to some countries with any DWI on your record - most notably, Canada. However, I have not encountered any problems with someone traveling to Mexico.

    Most likely yes. If you were convicted of DWI, the convictions will be on your record forever. It just depends on what database your employer uses to do background checks. A DWI conviction stays on your record forever.
