    If so how long does it take to get an expunge after completion of the anger management classes? How do you find out if it was dismiss or not?

    An anger management class is normally part of a deferred prosecution agreement. An expunction is normally not permissible until 2years after the date the offense was dismissed.

    William’s Answer

    You will almost certainly be contacted by either a representative of pretrial services or the District Attorney's office if your husband's lawyer believes there is a chance to have a personal bond approved. Give them your honest opinion on whether he will comply with conditions and whether he will pose a risk to you or your family.

    He has since been arrested for DWI a third time and has been going through the court. He is going to get senteced on Wednesday. However, on last Friday he was arrested for public lewdness for having sex in public which is a class A misdemeanor h...

    William’s Answer

    He probably should go forward with the sentencing if his DWI is a misdemeanor. This is true because the new arrest is so recent, the prosecutors wouldn't know about it. If you postponed the case, they may find out and pull their offer. The new case sounds like one that could be dismissed if handled properly.

  • What happens when you skip out on a felony dwi bond from Texas?

    My cousin was arrested for a felony dwi in texas. They got bailed out then left the state. They are refusing to come back but are worried that a bounty hunter will come and pick them up. How do I convince them to come back and turn themself in.

    William’s Answer

    It is very frightening to be charged with a felony that carries up to 10 years in prison. So, it is understandable someone would panic in this situation. Eventually he will get caught and it can be even worse on him than if he simply turns himself in. If he does not turn himself in and is caught by law enforcement or a bounty hunter he could have additional charges brought against him which brings more jail time.

    William’s Answer

    This depends on what the exact sentence was. If you were placed deferred ajudication you may qualify for a non-disclosure. If you your case was dismissed you may qualify for an expunction. However, if you served jail time as a sentence on this case you may not be able to seal the record.

    William’s Answer

    This really depends on some additional factors but, generally you can get your license back by paying the surcharge fees at the Texas Department of Public Safety. You can find more information on their website at https://texasonline.state.tx.us.

    You may be eligible for an expunction if the charge was dismissed. If it was filed as a "Class C" offense, even if deferred adjudication it can be eligible for sealing the record.

    There is no requirement to shaire any informaiton with most courts. It can be either a positive or negative to your situation. You will need to consult with an experienced attorney who can review all aspects of your case and help you determine how disclosure of this information will apply to your case.
