    Full range of punishment for a class B is up to 180 days in jail and/or a fine not to exceed $2000.00. You need to contact an attorney ASAP because theft is a crime of moral turpitude and is an enhanceable offense. You need an attorney to try to get this case dismissed. I regularly handle cases like this all the time in Travis County, feel free to contact me if you have any questions. (512) 529-7414. Best of Luck~

    You would need to fill out an application and apply for a court-appointed attorney to assist you with the appeal. Usually they will appoint the same attorney that represented you but that is not always the case, sometimes for instance, certain court appointed attorneys are not on the appeal's list.

    Yes, you need an attorney. A DWI is not the end of the world but you do have your whole future ahead of you and you need an experienced attorney to help you through this process. I'm glad to hear that you refused to give a specimen of your breath or blood, however, it sounds like you did admit to some sort of drug use. After reviewing your video and facts of the case, an attorney will be able to tell you your strengths and weaknesses. Don't hesitate, you definitely need an attorney.

    Yes, of course you need to hire an attorney. Hays County does not have a Veteran's Court as of yet but I know they are looking into it.

    If it is your first felony, deferred adjudication is a real possibility to answer your question. Going to AA and seeing a counselor will help your case as well. Keep up with it.

    Yes, you could still get felony probation. I agree with the response below, DWI 3rd probation lengths vary from 3-10 years probation depending on the facts of the case. I would seek alcohol treatment immediately to improve your chances.

    Contact a local criminal defense attorney. Since it is a Class C Misdemeanor and assuming this is your first offense, you should be able to fight for a dismissal upon completion of certain conditions. You certainly do not want a theft conviction on your record especially being a recent graduate with potential job prospects.

    I doubt it. While on probation, however, you are supposed to refrain from using drugs and/or alcohol, so you are definitely taking chances. If you are taking medication, make sure to give a list of medications to your PO in case something shows up. Good luck!

    Contact a local attorney. If he is charged with a terroristic threat, a misdemeanor, then the arresting officer has 24 hours to turn in the probable cause affidavit or 48 hours if it is felony. Either way, an attorney can go visit him and if the paperwork is turned in then we can waiver magistration and work on getting him out on a personal bond asap.
