    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.

    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.

    Hire an attorney. They can contact the court and ask the court to place the case on a docket. If the court wont retract the warrant then the attorney can recommend a bondsmen. You'll need a lawyer for court to protect your rights.

    any association with someone with a criminal record can be a violation of your terms and conditions of probation. There is nothing you can do. If the Judge does not give you permission to be with him you can't.

  7. What is the statute of limitations for filing a false police report in Houston, TX?

    Making a false police report is a Class B misdemeanor for which the statute of limitations is 2 years. The statute begins to run on the date that the report is made. It is typical for prosecutors to threaten a recanting complainant for saying they lied in their original accusation. I would suggest making sure the accused defense lawyer is informed of the complainant's new statements recanting her accusation.

  8. Ft.Bend county probation department question

    The Fort bend Probation department does random drug testing. To my knowledge this is mostly done with urine tests but they can do hair follicle testing if they had a reason to. The best rule of thumb is if you are on probation do not use illegal drugs or alcohol. The consequences of a positive drug test are not worth it.

    First there are a few options on keeping this off your record. You should discuss them with who ever you hire. Deferred adjudication probation and pre-trial diversion are both options that will keep your record clean. As far as hiring a lawyer the internet is a great starting point. Find lawyers who practice in Fort Bend County and then call them and interview them and find one you like.

    It sounds like you may be eligible for non-disclosure. I would contact an attorney and talk with them about your case and then they can tell you for sure but from what you have indicated I see no reason you can not have a non-disclosure petition done.
