The suspension "starts" the day the Administrative Decision is rendered. Hope this helpsSee question
I had sat out the dwi when i recived it
I agree with Mrs. Kosub. You "sat out your DWI", which means you took jail time instead of probation. Even if you were a repeat offender, any suspension you would have received should be over by now. As the other lawyers mentioned, you have to pay a $125.00 reinstatement fee to DPS. You can go online now to check the status of your license. I suggest that would be a great place to start.

Have been in the program for almost 1 year, fines are paid, have about 250 left to pay the school
Ask your probation officer in California for suggestions. I think you are going to have to complete the California program in order to get your license out of suspension in California, which is a prerequisite to getting a license in Texas. Reason - Texas will honor the California suspension. Although a Texas DWI Education course may satisfy the court, I'm just not sure it will satisfy the California DMV.
Hope this helps.
I received the dwi in december and the trail is still going on, I have not gotten a lawyer yet simply because I do not have the funds as of now. I was wondering if I have to get an attorney to be eligible for deferred adjudication, as this is my f...
Deferred adjudication went by the wayside in the early 80's. As Cordt mentioned, Pre Trial Diversion offers the benefit of a dismissal, if it is successfully completed, as well as the opportunity for expunction of your arrest record. If your case was filed in Harris County, your BAC must be below .15, and you can't have ANY prior arrests. You also must have had valid liability insurance at the time of your arrest, and there must not have been an accident involving substantial property damage, or injury. The decision to offer this program is entrusted to Wonderland Hudson at the Harris County District Attorney's Office. You will definitely need a lawyer to handle this for you. Of course, all of this assumes your case should be plead. You and your lawyer should first evaluate all of the evidence in your case, to determine whether pleading guilty is in your best interest. Hope this helps.See question
am charged with a DUI-Minor in Texas. I was pulled over for racing and blew a .015 on the PPT when it was all said and done. I was issued a citation and then told I could drive away, and did. Is this charge dismissible due to the fact I drove away?
I don't think the fact that you were allowed to drive away is dispositive of the case. Remember, they only have to show that you had a detectable amount of alcohol in your system in order to write you a citation. Be careful how you handle this, as there is a license suspension you're possibly facing. Hire local counsel to handle this case for you. Best of luck.See question
I was put on DADJ For a class b misdemeanor. I was with some friends and they all starting smoking weed and I ended up getting some of the second hand smoke. I'm making an effort to get all my stuff done for probation. I have a job and I'm saving ...
I agree with Mr. White. How long have you been on community supervision? If this is your first drug test, and it's still within 30 days of your arrest - they expect you to be dirty, and they will expect your levels to dissipate and then disappear. If more than thirty days have passed since your arrest, then you have some explaining to do. How heavy a user were you ? Are you obese ? These factors can effect the length of time that marijuana metabolites can be detected in a urine sample. I agree with the lawyer who touched on your "second hand smoke" explanation for why your U.A. will be "dirty". Probation Officers wont be impressed with that explanation. Ultimately what happens in your case will depend on the judge. You already plead guilty, and that judge has withheld a finding of guilty. If they adjudicate you, they have the full range of punishment at their disposal. If the judge chooses not to adjudicate you, they can modify and/or extend your deferred adjudication probation, giving you another opportunity to avoid a final conviction. I Hope this information helps.See question
When initially sentenced for my first dui offense, the Judged removed the At-Home Breathalyzer condition citing reasons that it was unfair and I am an adult who can drink. I still have to get an interlock if ever get another car during probation. ...
Interesting - a judge who wants you to continue to drink while on probation for DWI. If that's the case - then I would recommend that you have your lawyer go back to that judge and ask him or her to remove any conditions which would prohibit you from using alcohol - that is - if that judge still has a bench after January 1st. I'm surprised that in today's climate , with all of the political pressure brought to bear on both judges and prosecutors by Mothers Against Drunk Drivers, that your judge would allow you to continue to use alcohol while on DWI probation. Is it possible you misunderstood the judge? I agree with the other lawyers. A standard condition of DWI probation is that you be evaluated to determine if you have a drug or alcohol problem. if it is found that you do, then it becomes the order of the court that you get treatment. It goes without saying that abstaining from alcohol is part of that treatment. Like I said, you can always have your attorney ask the judge to remove that condition from your probation.See question
Decision basically stated there was not conclusive evidence the individual was legally intoxicated at the time of the accident.
Was there a hearing with live witnesses ? If the officer testified under oath, and afterward the judge found "no conclusive evidence of intoxication", then we can assume the evidence was favorable to your defense - "I wasn't intoxicated." The ALR hearing is tape recorded, and you should immediately attempt to get your hands on that recording. There's your "leverage". If the officer now attempts to alter or otherwise change his or her testimony, you have a presumably favorable prior recorded statement which can be used to impeach their testimony at trial and call into question their credibility. In Harris County, it's not uncommon for the State to request a copy of that tape. Hope this helps.See question

It is my understanding that Mike Anderson got rid of DIVERT & was considering Pre Trail Diversion. I am a highly respected female professional and am highly concerned about my reputation. I am typically a law abiding, moral, religious, & ethical. ...
They do offer pretrial intervention, which is the same thing as the pretrial diversion program, in Harris County Texas. This is the policy of Devon Anderson, the current District Atty. You do have to meet certain minimum qualifications, including having a blood alcohol content under .15, and you can never have been arrested for anything your entire life. Remember, just because an officer said you were intoxicated doesn't mean that you actually were. That is why you hire an experienced DWI attorney. They can look at all of the evidence, and then advise you whether you should plea or fight the case. Pretrial diversion is a good option where the evidence proves your guilt beyond a reasonable doubt - not so good where it doesn't. Get a second opinion about your level of intoxication from an attorney who has your best interest at heart. Take care and don't let this spoil the rest of your Christmas. By the way, do not fail to request the ALR hearing, as you have only 15 days to make that request. This is the hearing to save your license. The lawyer you hire can handle that for you. Best of luck.See question
