A friend of mine was pulled over for supposedly a DWI in 2011. It took a whole year before he even got a court date, when he called the DPS to find out how much he owes in surcharges they told him he didn't have a DWI on his record nor did it show his license being suspended. On top of that, they had done a blood test because the officer didn't have the breathalizer, yet he never saw the results. So according to Midland County he has a DWI, but the DPS in Austin said he doesn't. He has already paid in so much money for this, so my question is this: if they can't provide proof of the blood alcohol level from that evening, would Midland County have to expunge the DWI from his record and refund him all everything he has paid in? Please point us in the right direction..
It sounds like Midland is just one of the slower moving docket counties. While it may seem odd to you, it is much more likely that the case is still active and pending. DPS does not handle the criminal case in Midland. Best bet is for your friend to hire an attorney to represent him. The blood result is most likely in the hands of the prosecutor assigned to the case.
