I got a DWI a couple of months ago but I am still in the court process and my probation has not yet started. Would I be able to travel by plane to a nearby city? My intention is to return before my next court date.
As long as you are abiding by all of your bond conditions, you should be alright. But have your attorney run it past the judge of your court , just to be on the safe side. Good luck.See question
I got 90 days of deferred and the probation can pop random drug test got a possession of gambling device
Most likely you will not be revoked if it's your first UA , and it's dirty. I'm assuming you took a plea, were sent over to 49 San Jacinto, where you submitted a urine sample,which tested positive for THC. The issue with marijuana is that it remains in your system for up to thirty days. They now have a baseline reading. When they check again, your number should have significantly decreased, or be zero. You can't be revoked for an act committed prior to being placed on probation. No more weed for you - at least until you have been successfully discharged from deferred adjudication, and the case has been dismissed. Best of luck.See question
I was recently in a car wreck in which I was not at-fault but I have a suspended license and was cited. This is my first traffic citation. My license is suspended due to a default judgement from a few years ago that remain unsatisfied. Can I be ar...
A first offense for Driving While License Invalid under these circumstances ( a judgement lien) is a Class C Misdemeanor. They want their money, not you. The citation you signed is your promise to appear ( like a personal recognizance bond) to either pay the citation, or request a hearing. To be arrested for DWLI, you have to either have a prior DWLI conviction, or be DWLI with no insurance, which makes it a Class B Misdemeanor. It's a Class A Misdemeanor if you are DWLI, and you have no insurance, and you either caused, or are the "at fault party" in an accident which resulted in serious bodily injury or death. Bottom line, I think you'll be O.K.See question
I received my Dwi when I was 19 yrs old, I had a accident with another vehicle in which no one was hurt. My car skid on a rain day into another vehicle. I'm currently 22 going on 23. I would like to have any info if it's still a possibility
I think you can become a licensed security officer. The Texas Occupation Code,, Chapter 10, Section 1702, covers Private Security Guards. Under the General Qualifications, Sec 1702.113, you cannot apply if you are "currently" being charged with a Class A or B Misdemeanor. If you want to become a Commissioned Officer, that is one who carries a weapon, you cannot have two prior DWI convictions within the preceding ten years of applying for their license - Bottom line - you should be O.K. Good luck.See question
I was arrested for a DWI and my attorney never requested an ALR, his secretary will not answer me when I ask why.
The request for hearing must be received by DPS within 15 days from the date you received, or are presumed to have received the Notice of Suspension Temporary Driving Permit - form DIC 25. Typically that date is the day or night you were arrested for DWI. If no request is received by the Department within that 15 day period, your license is eligible for suspension, 40 days from the date you received or are presumed to have received that notice. You can fax your request for hearing to (512) 424-2650. Be sure and tell them your name, date of birth, license number, address, phone number, county of arrest, whether it was a refusal or failure,the officers name, the police agency that arrested you, and any other pertinent information. Good luck.See question
I have court next week what can happen
I could give you a much better answer if I had more information. Which court are you in ? Is this a Misdemeanor or a Felony? How long have you been on probation? Are you current on all other conditions of probation? Have you had any other violations? How old are you? What are the facts of the underlying DWI? What was the breath or blood test result ? Was their an accident? Have they filed a Motion to Revoke Probation already ? If so, what are the allegations? Give us this information, and we can give you a better answer. Either way - you will definitely need a lawyer.See question
I am facing a DWI in Michigan and I'm not sure if I need a Texas lawyer as well or if my licence will be affected or not.
I agree 100% with Mr. Hines. Texas is a member state of the interstate drivers license
compact. As long as Michigan's DWI laws are substantially similar to the Texas DWI laws,Texas will recognize Michigan suspensions. In other words, if an action occurs in Michigan which would trigger a suspension in Texas, then Texas will suspend your license. Then you will need a lawyer in Texas, to apply for an occupational drivers license.
I have a DUI case pending (first time, class B misdemeanor, no prior criminal history) and received a parking ticket this week for parking within 20 ft from a crosswalk (Did not even know that was a statute, but never mind). My question is, will ...
Please - I know it's easy for me to say - but really - stop worrying - it will be O.K. You aren't a bad person or a "criminal" just because you were charged with a first offense DWI. And to address the elephant in the room - you most likely wont spend a day in jail for this offense. To answer the more specific question - the municipal court, and the County Court at Law, don't know one anothers business. Therefore, the County Court at Law handling the DWI will have no clue about your parking ticket. Even if they did - they wouldn't care. Hire an attorney who specializes in DWI defense, and let them take over the case - and the worry. That is, after all, what they are paid to do. I wish you the best, and I hope this answer brings you some comfort.See question
Defendant was found walking near accident scene (car was ultimately declared a total loss). He reportedly couldn't say where he'd been, where he was going, or how the accident happened. The arresting officer interpreted this as an indicator of i...
It depends on the nature and extent of the injuries. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the agency that developed the field sobriety tests ,realized that some people weren't good candidates for the tests, like people who had suffered concussions,head trauma, or other injuries to the body which would keep them from being able to perform the physical exercises. Further - shock can mimic intoxication. Find an experienced DWI lawyer in your area that has litigated these issues.Good luck.See question
they don't want to give me probation is there a way to get under the 30 day minimum in texas do they give more time if I had a very high bac I didn't crash or hit anything or anyone
That's a shame because probation is a way of getting around the 30 days. If they would agree to punish it as a first offense, that is another way of doing it. A second offense probation carries a three day minimum jail term as a condition of probation, and five day jail term if the prior DWI was within five years of this one.See question
