    You are in a good felony court but your lawyer needs to answer your questions. This is your freedom. Hire a new lawyer.

  • No short way discharge,non aggervated, will do quarter of time flat time plus good time.

    My loved one is doing 25 years and has done 22 years so far on a aggervated charge for his current sentence. He picked up a separate charge while inside in 2013. He came up for parole review and asked the Pio, about the other separate charge, was...

    Cynthia’s Answer

    What does all that mean? On the original charge he was required to do 1/2 before being considered for parole. Obviously he has done way more than that. The new charge could run concurrently but was more likely stacked on the old charge so he would parole (or discharge) the original case before beginning to serve time on the new case. On the new case, he could parole (or discharge.)

  • How to stop domestic violence conviction

    I filled a report of DV but now some time has passed and I realized that the suspect was only trying to protect themselves and their home by not allowing me inside to get my belongings, he was not there at the time the police were taking my report...

    Cynthia’s Answer

    Did you lie to the police? If so, you made a false report and should hire a lawyer. If not and it is just nuances, then you can contact police but be aware that any changes in the report will be viewed with great skepticism as complainants more often than not have what we term "buyer's regret" and after they have cooled off and are no longer anger, they wish they had not made the report.

  • Is failing a UA for conditions of bond a probation violation.

    I took a UA for conditions of bond in a misdemeanor court about a week before I signed for felony probation in another court. I was unaware of etg testing technology. Question is if the UA was for conditions of bond a BEFORE I was on probation ca...

    Cynthia’s Answer

    No, your probation cannot be revoked for something that happened before you go the probation. BUT, it can definitely affect your conditions of probation - meaning that they can add drug testing and drug treatment because you failed.

    You are on probation now. You need to get serious. You should not have been using while on bond but it is no longer just about getting your bond revoked. You can go to prison.

  • Should I tell my Probation officer about this traffic warrant?

    I got a speeding ticket before I was on probation? I completely forgot about it. Few months ago I called Tx DPS to find any tickets I had so I could pay them since I finally had the money. This one was not mentioned. Few weeks ago I did a backgrou...

    Cynthia’s Answer

    Yes, you should tell your probation officer. It does not violate your probation and it will help build trust between you and your probation officer that you thought it proper to mention it. I would call him back and tell him.

  • How long of a sentence can you face for a dwi on your second mtr?

    .

    Cynthia’s Answer

    I agree completely with Chuck. It is not about it being your second MTR. It is about the level of offense for which you are on probation.

    Cynthia’s Answer

    It is not a fine. It is a civil demand which if you ignore it you will receive more aggressive letters demanding higher amounts until the letters stop.

    You need to handle the criminal charge. It is most important.

  • Do I have to use court appointed arty when I need 2 motion to modify probation? Can I request interstate transfer in that motion

    Need to modify the no contact terms of probation I took deal for deferred felony with weapon charge. There was no order by the state or victim for no contact the judge made it condition of probation. Yet now the victim and I wish to remarry he has...

    Cynthia’s Answer

    You no longer have a court appointed lawyer. If you want to modify your probation in any manner, you will need to hire a lawyer. You are not entitled to transfer - the judge in your court AND the state to which you want to move have to agree. It is NOT automatic. And, you need a lawyer to talk to the judge about no contact. If you have had no contact as is a condition of your probation, then how do you know that you and the victim now wish to marry? Sounds like you have been violating your probation.......

    I am supposed to term probation next week. Today I looked at the local country clerk website website and the case status says case closed and the disposition days DSMD DEFR ADJ. My question is I wasn't put on deferred, I was placed on straight pro...

    Cynthia’s Answer

    Unless your case was a DWI, why take a straight probation (generally.) When your probation is truly terminated, your probation officer will send you a copy of the order terminating it - whether it was straight or deferred.

    And "wait out the last 3 days" like you are going to go party like there is no tomorrow? I would wait.

    Cynthia’s Answer

    Clearly someone is being investigated for something. If your husband previously lived there, he could be the target. You could be charged with harassment depending on the content of the calls but I have NEVER seen this type of search for that kind of charge (which is a misdemeanor.)
