    If your case is in Fort Bend County contact your bondsman. Usually an arraignment date is set when the bond is made. Because you are on bond the DA's office will usually indict a felony case within 90 days of the charges being filed but the Statute of limitation is 3 years. However, it is unusual not to have an arraignment date. I suggest you hire an attorney or check with your bondsman

  • How do I check the status after filing charges on someone 5 years ago?

    I called constantly to check on the status of the charges that were filed, and was always told that there was a high volume of complaint. I was told that it could take a while. Well, five years have passed and I still havent heard anything.

    Rosario’s Answer

    You can go to the Harris Co. DA's office intake division on the 2nd floor of the Criminal Justice Center and ask to speak to the community service desk prosecutor they can check on the status of the case. Another alternative is to check with the police agency you reported the case to and that took the offense report. They can tell you if charges were accepted or not

    I agree with Mr. McClure. More detailed information is needed to be able to answer your question. The range of punishment for the charge your Husband is on probation for and the Judge he is before are critical. The Judge could either revoke the probation or continue your husband on probation with additional conditions. Retaining an attorney for your Husband is very important.

    Rosario’s Answer

    You need to deal with the charge in Texas. If you leave and do not appear in Court a warrant will be issued and your bond will be forfeit. You need to hire a good lawyer as soon as possible. Being placed on probation in a Texas case when you live in another State is a tricky matter so the lawyer you hire will need to help you negotiate it.

    Rosario’s Answer

    If your Husband is out on bond then it does not matter that the State has not indicted him yet. If he is in jail then after 90 days he is entitled to a PR Bond if the State does not indict him in that time limit. The state has until the statute of limitations is ended to Indict someone for a felony.

    Rosario’s Answer

    You need to hire an attorney. the basis of the theft as far as the State is concerned is the amount of rent owed on the car. The amount must be over $1500 since they charged you with felony. An Attorney can present your side of the facts to the prosecutor and may be able to convince them to dismiss the case. You need to hire an attorney as soon as possible.
