    Lauren’s Answer

    Consult Legal Aid or a family law attorney. If you have any child support orders, please have copies of those orders. The District Attorney's office most likely has a victim advocate who can walk you through securing a protective order against your baby's father.

    Criminal Trespass generally is a Class B misdemeanor which ranges from $0 -$2,000 fine and from 0 - 180 days in the County Jail. Also, probation up to 2 years. Most large cities, San Antonio, Bexar County included, have a mental health docket. In Bexar County, the mental health docket is held in County Court 12. He can be interviewed to see if he qualifies.

  • How to get a pr bond in the state of tx

    a friend of mine is in jail on a 100,000 bond i wanted to know how could he get a pr bond or get his bond lowered

    Lauren’s Answer

    Generally, a PR or Personal Recognizance Bond is granted when a defendant has significant ties to the community and is low flight risk. Judging from the amount of the bond, your friend is charged with a serious felony offense. It is very unlikely that he will qualify for a PR bond but I would encourage you to contact a local attorney.
    Regarding a bond reduction, it is possible depending on many factors. Again, an attorney in your area should be consulted if one has not been appointed.

    This is my first dwi and or alcohol related offense. What Can I do legally about this?

    Lauren’s Answer

    If your blood alcohol level (BAC) is alleged to be above .15 then you can be charged with Driving While Intoxicated with an "Extreme Intoxication" enhancement which is a Class A misdemeanor regardless if it is your first arrest for DWI. It is a class B misdemeanor is the BAC is under .15.

    Lauren’s Answer

    In general, a parolee is not entitled to a court appointed attorney for an alleged parole violation. Again, without knowing more, your husband may have a had a "blue" warrant issued by the parole violation of failing to report a new address. In that case, your husband may not have committed a new offense but being held for the parole violation only. A hearing to determine whether or not your husband committed the violation. The hearing will be sent to the parole board who will determine the outcome. There should be attorneys available in your area to assist in the parole hearing if you can afford to hire one.
