    Hello. Your main question is will CPS be called on you? The only person / people that can answer that question are the police officers involved in the incident from that night. But, in order to justify a CPS investigation, the agency would need to have some sort of allegation of neglect on your part towards your child or some sort of basis to suspect that you were endangering your child. Just because you were with someone that had marijuana on them is not sufficient reason in and of itself...

  2. I got in trouble for a petty theft, because a friend had stolen merchandise, what should I do next?

    Hello. In order to charge you with Theft, the State (Police) will have to show that you were somehow aiding or participating in your friend's act of shoplifting. The typical way is to show that you were the "lookout" person. Another way is that one person would remove the packaging and another person would conceal the items. Another common way is that one person selects the items and the second person hides the items. If you did none of these actions that it will be very difficult for...

    SHHHHHHH!!!!! First off, you probably should stop saying things on open forums where you are making admissions that could potentially be used against you. You have a right to be silent ... exercise your rights! Now, lets talk about some generalities. Theft is classified by categories of value. In other words, if a person steals less than $50 worth of stuff, they are charged with a class c misdemeanor. Between $50 and $500, a class B misdemeanor and between $500 and $1,500, a class A...

  4. What the different between my trial date and my sentence date?

    Hello. Your question is a little bit confusing because you say that you have been "convicted of aggravated robbery ..." I assume that you mean that you were "charged with" those crimes and that you have a trial date. If you were "convicted" then you have been found "guilty" but assuming that you have only been charged, then you are "innocent until you are proven guilty" which means that the state prosecutor has to prove your guilt at a trial. If the prosecutor is able to prove that you...

    Mr. Harris is correct, you really need to NOT talk to anyone about this incident, including DO NOT post about it on-line as you do not want someone taking what you have said and using it against you as an admission on your part. Remember, this is an open forum and not a legal consultation where our communications are privileged. Okay, that being said - If you were a guest in the house, you were invited into the house and at the time of the alleged assault, were still welcomed in the house,...

  6. After serving probation for a year, 1st DWI, will show on my record or can it be sealed, expunged?

    Hello. Unfortunately, in Texas there is no such thing as "Deferred Probation" for a DWI. I assume that you are on probation in El Paso, since that is where your question originated from. Because you say that you are on probation for one year, then it is very likely that you are NOT in the PTD, or Pre-Trial Diversion program. That would be the only way to come out of a DWI without a conviction. There are only a few counties in Texas that operate PTD programs. Now, once you are "convicted"...

  7. What do I do about my first class c misdemeanor?!

    Don't panic. It will be okay. You may be able to get an attorney to represent you on the Class C Theft fairly cheap. You can call the same attorneys that do the traffic tickets. See if they will represent you for the same basic prices that they charge for the traffic tickets. Your representation is essentially the same and will be in the same courts. Either way, if it comes down to you needing to go to court and enter a plea, you need to request "Deferred Adjudication Probation." You...

    I agree with Ms. Jaggers, this is silly. But, you should also be careful and not say anything else about this or what the substance was or might have been so that there are no admissions by you. If the Detective wants to talk to you, remember that you have a right to remain silent - exercise your rights. If the Detective files the charges with the District Attorney's office, the case will not get filed. If, for some unheard of reason, it does get filed, come see me. Based on what you...

    Ms. Jaggers is correct. The Criminal Defense Attorney can call the complainant to the stand. However, if she is going to recant, or say that she lied to the police, there is a very real possibility that the Judge will appoint an attorney to advise her of the possible consequences of changing her story under oath. The problem for her is that it all depends on how she gave her original version of her story. You say in your questions "inappropriate touching", which most likely means that a...

    Hello. There is both good and bad news for you. The bad news is that you are facing a pretty serious felony charge. I am assuming that you are facing that charge here in El Paso since that is where you posted your question from. The good news is that based on what you have put here in your question, it is likely that in a worst case scenario you only looking at Deferred Probation on the felony charge. There is a possibility, depending on several factors, that we could get the charge...
