    He may be looking to up to 1 year in the county jail. Bottom line is he needs to hire an attorney to represent him. Just because a motion to revoke probation is filed does not mean his probation will get revoked. I have represented many clients on revocations and after speaking to the Judge, prosecutor, and probation we make an agreement to reinstate the probation. He needs a lawyer and soon.

    You need to hire an experienced criminal defense attorney if you want to "fight" your case. If this is your 1st DWI then you will be charged with a Class B misdemeanor. A good attorney will read the police report, watch the video and speak with you. Please hire an attorney as soon as possible.

Second your husband needs to retain an immigration attorney.

    Currently senior in college and recieved the misdemeanor 3 years ago.

    Rosario’s Answer

    If the case was dismissed or you were found not guilty at trial then you can have the case expunged right now. If you accepted a plea bargain of deferred adjudication probation then you can have the record sealed with a Petition of Non-Disclosure. Call my office at 281-920-5600 to discuss these options.

  • Can they judge take me off probation just because I told (PO) supervisor I had accepted something I didn't do!?

    I just want to know if he can take the probation away and send me to prison just because on what I said?

    Rosario’s Answer

    Your probation can only be revoked after a hearing in front of the Judge where he finds you violated a term or condition of probation or if you plead true to violating your probation and accept a plea bargain.
    Everything you tell your PO will be written down and given to the Judge. Your PO works for the Judge.
    It is not a violation of your probation to say you did not commit the crime. So no that statement will not violate your probation. However it wont help make your probation go smoothly.
