    Here's a list of the factors that will play a part in your cousin's sentence 1) The rehabilitation efforts she undertakes between now and her sentence 2) The attitude of the judge 3) the strength of the DWI accusation she is currently facing 3) The skill of the defense attorney in arguing that she should be allowed to get probation again. Only one of these things can anyone control right now and that is finding a skilled and experienced criminal defense attorney. If I were your cousin's...

    I agree with Ms. Foley, and beware of anyone who tells you differently. Never pay an attorney for an expunction unless the attorney can explain why you or your loved on is eligible to receive one. Good luck.

    These are questions that are best addressed to your attorney. If you have not yet gotten a court appointed attorney you need to research hiring a lawyer. A good lawyer will talk to you about the strategies that can be employed to reduce your sentence, get your case dismissed, or to prepare for a jury trial. At the end of the day, the sentence you will receive (if you are eventually sentenced) will depend on the following factors 1) The strength of the Government's Evidence 2) the amount of...

    You need to get legal representation. When an employer accuses you of theft everything you say can be used against you. That includes statements made to co-workers, to friends, other employees and to the employer themselves. Even your reaction to the accusation can be used to bolster your employer's case. Be careful what you put in emails. Often, an employer will tell you that they won't press charges if you resign or make restitution, but making agreements without legal representation is...

    I agree with the above answers and I would add that the following: Just because a police officer works for the State does not mean the Federal Government cannot file charges based on their investigations. So, a DPS trooper might make an arrest that results in Federal charges being brought and a Federal Agent might make an arrest resulting in State charges. Good luck.

    You absolutely need a lawyer to help you with this. Do not go to his office without first hiring an attorney to advocate on your behalf. Once you have spoken to law enforcement, especially if you are out of custody, whatever you say will be used against you. Even if you are completely innocent, you do not want to be locked into a version of events that forfeits other legal defenses. Here's what you should do: 1) Contact a lawyer and tell the lawyer what is going on. 2) If the officer...

    You need to contact a lawyer who knows your specific situation. The answer depends on whether or not you are on pre-trial release or on probation. It also depends on the judge who is hearing the case and what that judge's attitude is toward your violation. If you are on pre-trial release you need to immediately contact your lawyer and explain your situation. If you are on probation you need to hire a new lawyer (or the lawyer who resolved your case) and tell him the situation. Regardless,...

    Unfortunately, there is not a satisfying answer to this question. Texas allows you to own a firearm after the fifth anniversary from your release from probation. However, Federal law prohibits you from owning a firearm unless your civil rights have been restored. The only way to have your civil rights restored is to apply to the Governor for a pardon. I would recommend that you hire a lawyer to continue with this process. Good luck

    The answers you will receive will be accurate based on whether or not this is a Federal case. I believe, based on my experience that your husband is facing a Federal criminal case. In Federal criminal cases probation is not automatic even if the defendant has a clean record. That does not mean, however, that probation cannot be granted by the Federal District Court Judge. Here is how the case will likely proceed. First, the Court will determine whether there is sufficient evidence to...

    A Federal Criminal Accusation is a threat to everything you and your boyfriend are working to do. Getting out of debt should be secondary to making sure that your boyfriend gets every possible strategy examined. If your boyfriend is being accused of sexual internet charges the end result will be that the Government will try and make your boyfriend spend time in prison and become a lifetime registered sex offender. A good lawyer can give your boyfriend a fighting chance at 1) Finding a way to...
