    How long has it been since the order was granted? you need to look at the original order signed by the judge and see specifically what entities were ordered to expunge their records. Private companies typically buy their records from government agencies on a quarterly basis. When these companies by the new information, they typically update their entire database like replacing all of the current information with the new information. So, with time this private companies' information...

    Well, most people don't wear it everyday and an argument could be made that you were anticipating the confrontation (whether that was/is true or not would be a fact issue).

    The answer to this question is very case and court specific. There are many factors that play into whether a person with a DWI 1st will serve jail time as a condition in Harris County. You will need to address the fact that you have a warrant before your next court date or you will be taken into custody on that day. Specifically how you failed to comply with the terms of your pretrial release bond will also determine whether or not the district attorneys office will offer a probation and if...

    If the DA won't dismiss despite the affidavit, then maybe that is why the attorney wants to go to trial. Maybe the attorney is thinking they state can prove the case. You should talk to your attorney more about this....

    Yes, they can find out by running your record. If you were arrested, the information was entered into the system (TCIC/NCIC) which will allow for viewing of any arrested nation wide. You need to consult with an attorney. You are not supposed to be drinking at all on this program. If they find out, an attorney may be able to keep you from being kicked out. If you do get kicked out, yes you could get jail time and that is why you should hire an attorney. Good Luck

    Yes - in Harris County you do get back time for the time your were in New Choices. However, you cannot file a motion for 12.44(a). If you have violated your deferred in some way and the state has filed a motion to revoke your community supervision, then you need to hire an attorney, who could possible negotiate that deal for you. But if you are just talking about wanting to get off probation, it doesn't work that way. Depending on how you have done, the Judge and other factors, you maybe be...

    Maybe. Depending on content and frequency. You can not communicate in a threat or text too many times. There are no magic words or number of times, but would be subject to interpretation by the agency filing the charge and the ADA reviewing the case. So, you need to stop and consult with an attorney.

    Not necessarily. Each case, court and prosecutor will affect the outcome differently. You need to hire an attorney and discuss the specific facts of the case with the attorney that you hire. The issue here is possession, not who takes the case.

    No, you weren't convicted. But the question is not asking that. You should get your recorded sealed so this won't be an issue.

    There is nothing you can do right now except hire a good attorney. The attorney will assist you in understanding how to prepare for court. Much of this will depend on who your judge and prosecutor is. There are too many unknowns right now. Your priors are old, which is good. But your DWI is still enhanced to a felony. So, you need to get a good local attorney before your first court date.
