    The officer cannot search you for weapons just because he stopped you to investigate a traffic offense. In order to search you for weapons he has to have specific, articulable facts that lead him to believe that you might be armed. Not just a hunch. Therefore the search is bad under that theory. However, an officer is entitled to arrest a motorist if he has probable cause to believe the motorist committed a moving violation other than speeding (or open container). Presumably you were...

  3. Can the DA change the deal they made with someone in exchange for their testimony against someone else after the fact?

    Usually the DA will make an offer but withhold the plea or not box themselves in on sentencing until after you testify against the other person. Once the testimony is over then the plea bargain is realized. At that point the DA cannot reopen the case, even if the other guy's case is reversed. They can still call you as a witness and, if you testify differently, they can impeach you with your prior testimony. But they cannot "undo" your plea bargain. If, however, your plea bargain is still...

    That is a very long time to sit in jail awaiting trial. Unfortunately it is common for defendants charged with this crime to be denied a bond and to sit in jail a long time before trial. There are too many factors to list here that might be affecting him. If the State is seeking death then this factor will likely drag it out a while. He can file a motion for speedy trial to try and move things along, but I would defer to his current lawyer(s) about whether such a motion is in his best interests....

    It depends on the case, but it most commonly means either: (1) a deadly weapon was involved; (2) someone suffered serious bodily injury; or (3) the victim was very young. When added, it typically increases the punishment range by at least one level. These are felony cases with serious consequences. I strongly urge you to get an experienced criminal defense lawyer involved immediately.

    You need to first find out how your record classified this case. If you posted your son't bail then the case might come up on a background check just to show you were the bail bondsman. If you are showing up as the defendant, then your options will depend on the jurisdiction. If it's in Houston then call the DA's Office and ask for the general litigation section. Tell them what your problem is. They have a procedure set up for clearing it up.

  7. What will happen after my husband was arrested and charged with burglary of a habitation from back in 2009?

    As a general rule, there are a lot more difficulties convicting someone of an old case than there are with a newer one. Burglary of a habitation is a pretty serious case and if it is that old then it's almost certainly been indicted...meaning that we've lost a valuable took that could have otherwise worked in our favor. Nonetheless, the prosecutor is not going to be very excited about a 2009 case with no blood or bodies. If your husband's lawyer does a fair amount of homework then there is a...

  8. My husband is in jail at Harris county he has an ICE what are the chances of him getting a bond???

    If the facts you gave are correct then I'm sure he has a bond set on the criminal case. You can post that bond, but he will not be released as long as there is an ICE detainer on him. He needs to consult with an immigration lawyer to see if there is any way to post an immigration bond or have the detainer lifted. If either of those is accomplished then he should be able to post his criminal bond and be released.

    Yes, one can still be charged. There would be a warrant for that person's arrest and the case would remain in hibernation until they were caught.

    It is unlikely that California will actively pursue you, but you can bet that the first time a Texas cop pulls you over then you are going to jail. There will certainly be an active warrant out for your arrest. Texas will begin an extradition proceeding. You will probably be able to make an extradition bond in Texas and then run out to California to post a bond there (if one is available), rendering the Texas extradition proceeding moot. Nonetheless, the point is that you will have to face the...
