    While the cross examination of witnesses is standard practice in most cases, sometimes there are strategic reasons not to do so. Every case is different and there is no way to give an opinion without knowing all the circumstances surrounding the case and trial.

    a criminal record is not like a credit report. Things do not get taken off after a period of time, and the only way to get things off your record is to either expunge it or file a petition of non-disclosure. Since you completed deferred adjudication, your case was technically dismissed. Still, your record may show the arrest, charge, the fact that you got deferred adjudication, and that it was dismissed. Under the law as it stands today, you would not be entitled to an expungement, only...

  3. What does to disclose experts in a criminal case mean

    In a criminal case, either the state or the defense can ask the judge to order the other side to disclose any experts they have and that may testify in the case. The judge will usually give a timeline as to when the information has to be turned over. I expect that has been done in your brother's case and either his attorney or the State has asked the other side to give them the names of the expert witnesses they intend to call during trial.

    The State (district attorney) is subpoenaing witnesses that they are preparing for the possibility of trial. This is pretty standard in any case where the state is making sure that their witnesses are under subpoena and therefore under the jurisdiction of the court. In the end it will be a way for them to make sure everyone shows up to testify when they are needed. If your boyfriend has been in jail for 90 days without being indicted, then consult his attorney ASAP to get a P.R. bond. If...

  5. I was convicted without a trial in texas

    Get at attorney quickly. Most post conviction remedies have strict deadlines. In Texas you have a very limited amount of time to ask for a new trial. However, writ of habeas corpus have a much longer timeframe with which to work with. Like I said, talk to an attorney ASAP and discuss your options.

  7. Speeding ticket with wrong vehicle information. Is that a case for dismissal ?

    Your post doesn't have a lot of information, but I expect you mean the office or did not put the correct information as to the vehicle you were driving? If so it's not automatic grounds for dismissal, but will make the prosecutions case harder to prove against you. However the strength of your case will fully depend on the facts and circumstances surrounding the ticket. You can certainly appear by yourself, but if you plan to fight the ticket then I do recommend you hire an attorney. Even...

  8. My daughter is in jail, she got stop, ticket dwl supended, not signaling. and she had meth in her car.

    although the dwl suspended is a misdemeanor case, any amount of meth in Texas is considered a felony. The level of the felony will depend on the amount they are alleging she possessed. Wether or not she gets probation or some sort of drug treatment will depend on the court and the prosecutor's recommendation. In my experience if they are going to recommend probation, they will most likely give her some sort of outpatient treatment and have her attend some drug classes. However, if she tests...

    Hire an attorney quickly and explain your situation to them. If you are still on the probationary period for your first offense, that could create trouble for you. Also, if you are trying to make sure you get the best deal possible on this second case, the sooner you talk to a lawyer the better.
