    If you're on disability, you should really inquire about a court appointed attorney. Assuming the facts are as you stated, this should be an easy case to get deferred adjudication or something similar.

    Get an attorney. It's tough for pro se people to be able to negotiate properly with the state prosecutors and the judges. It's worth the money.

    Adrian’s Answer

    Bexar County does not have a public defender system but instead contracts private attorneys to handle indigent defense, so in all likelyhood you will receive a good attorney at a fraction of his or her ordinary cost. If you don't like him or her, you can always hire the lawyer of your choice later on.

    Adrian’s Answer

    In San Antonio, the DA's Office will typically pick up the charges. Your best bet is to convince the police officer that took the report to not turn the matter over to the DA. Otherwise, once the DA has it, you'll have to convince him to dismiss it after the fact, which sometimes they do, sometimes they don't.

    You are absolutely entitled to whatever visitation is outlined in your last court order, nothing more, nothing less. If he refuses to obey the order, you can hire a lawyer to file a motion to enforce. If your order does not provide for visitation, or for insufficient visitation, you can hire a lawyer to file a motion to modify.

  • Why does my court date keep getting pushed back?

    I got in a car accident. Car hit me and destroyed my car. He didn't have insurance and I only had liability so I sued him so he would pay me my car back. He has a lawyer and I don't. I just sued him in a small court

    Adrian’s Answer

    Courts in general, and San Antonio courts in particular, tend to overbook their docket. Whatever the type of case, multiple resets are common if you don't settle outside of court and require a trial.

    Depending on when this occurred, there may be no statute of limitations for this offense, as there is now currently no statute of limitations for sex offenses in Texas. Therefore, you may still be able to file charges. Please keep in mind that due to the passage of time and consequential lack of physical proof, you will need to testify at trial as he has a right to confront his accuser and you need to ask yourself whether that is worth it, given the trauma you've already been through. Call the police to start the process.
