  • HELP PLEASE

    IM IN PROBATION FOR 4 YEARS FOR A 3RD DEGREE FELONY AND I GET NEW CHARGES FOR A MISDEMEANOR CLASS B FAILURE TO ID WHAT HAPPENDS WITH THAT ITS REVOKE PROBATION OR NO? AND IF IS REVOKE PROBATION WHAT HAPPENDS TO ME IN COURT I ALREADY HAVE A LAWYER ...

    Mario’s Answer

    I agree that you should listen to your attorney. In any case where a motion to revoke is filed, the court can modify the probation (adding conditions including jail time); revoke the probation (sending the probationer to prison); or deny the motion and reinstate the probation as if nothing happened.

    Speak with your lawyer regarding your options. Good luck.

  • Can a Class C Misdemeanor for shoplifting be expunged or sealed in Texas?

    I was caught shoplifting an item under 50 dollars. I paid both the court and civil penalty fee. I receive a penalty release letter and was wondering if a company were to do a background check on me would they see this on my record?

    Mario’s Answer

    If you pled guilty and were found guilty under the current law you cannot either seal or expunge your record. Legally your only option would be a presidential or gubernatorial pardon.

    A motion to adjudicate will likely be filed on your original case. You are entitled to a hearing on that case to determine if you violated the terms and conditions of your community supervision. You can be revoked and face up to 2 years in State Jail; you can be reinstated and possibly have your deferred modified in some way;or you can win at the hearing and continue the deferred. However you will still have to deal with the new case.

    You will need to hire an attorney.

  • What should i do i got a citation while on deferred disposition

    my deffered disposition is in carrollton and the ticket i got is in mansfield

    Mario’s Answer

    It depends on what the terms of your deferred disposition are. If the terms are no moving violations and the court is aware, you will be found guilty of the original citation. If the terms are no convictions you must make sure the new ticket does not result in a conviction.

    Mario’s Answer

    I agree with the prior answers. You need to hire a Texas attorney to help you. Do not wait to get arrested and extradited. The warrant is not going to go away. A local attorney can possibly get you a bond you can make and the attorney can defend you while you are on bond rather in jail.

  • Can i go to jail for missing my court date?

    I got a dui 2 years ago in WA and when i got my review went out and celebrated but i got another one. To makes things worst I ran away to TX, Can I follow this problem from Tx or do I need to go to WA?

    Mario’s Answer

    You should speak with an attorney in Washington. You can be arrested for an out of state warrant and held and extradited to the other state. You should not wait and wait to see if you will one day get arrested, rather you should be proactive and contact an attorney from Washington.

  • What is a motion conference in a criminal case

    what happens at a plea?

    Mario’s Answer

    Courts will use different titles for court settings. For example, a setting may be called an arraignment , a non issue, a non trial, a disposition, a pretrial conference or a motion setting, just to name a few. It sounds like the motion conference you are asking about is setting where a the state and defense discuss all motions filed before a trial date given. You should speak with an attorney that practices in the county that has a motion conference to be sure.

    I agree with the prior posts. You need to speak with an immigration attorney. Begin by posting on this site for immigrations.
