  • Police contacted me about an incident that happened at previous job concerning theft.

    Meghan’s Answer

    As everyone has already said, you should not talk to the police without an attorney present. The cops never "just want to talk." If you are officially charged with theft, that is when a warrant would go out for your arrest. At that time, you would be entitled to a court appointed attorney if you cannot afford one. If you are worried that there may be a warrant out for your arrest, I would recommend contacting a local bonding company as they should have access to that information.

  • How long should I wait to hire an attorney?

    Meghan’s Answer

    As the others mentioned, the sooner you hire an attorney the better. In Lubbock, it typically takes several months before the DA officially files charges, at which point you will hear from the court. Additionally, it is extremely rare for DWI charges not to be filed in Lubbock County. This means you almost certainly will be hearing from the court at some point in the future. The best thing to do is meet with several attorneys now so that you can find the best person to represent you, and along with your attorney, you can begin to develop a plan for your defense. This would also give you an idea of what it will cost to hire an attorney so you have more time to save money, if necessary.

  • How do i press criminal charges and get justice.....

    Meghan’s Answer

    Technically, it is the District Attorney who files charges against someone. What you can do (as you have already tried to do) is report a complaint to law enforcement. Law enforcement then investigates and sends the police reports to the District Attorney. It sounds like the police are saying you have to make the complaint in person. My advice would be to contact other law enforcement entities in that area and see if anyone can help you while you are out of town. If you have already tried the local police department, you could also try the Sheriff's Department, DPS, and the Texas Rangers. Although that may not be their area on investigation, hopefully you will find someone who can pass the complaint along to the right department. Also, your friend who was helping you before may be able to make the complaint in person for you to get the investigative process started.
