To be more specific: the DPS action is an administrative action and operates on its own. It is not connected to your criminal actions. Even if the prosecutor never filed the charge or the military never prosecuted you, that does not affect the DPS matter.
You can request a hearing, but it's probably too late unless it was based on a blood test result that just came back. If you took a breath test or refused the test, then you won't get a hearing. If it was blood test, then you should request a hearing a hire an attorney to help you fight over the license.
I was pulled over in 2013 for failure to stop and suspended driver license. I was given a court appointed attorney due to funds. The attorney has never heard the side of my story. We got into an argument and later that week I received a letter say...
If you don't want her as your attorney, you need to hire one your choice. You do not get to choose your court-appointed attorney. If there is true conflict, then the court will be required to appoint someone else. But just not getting along or not liking her is not a true conflict. Hire one of your choosing. If you cannot afford one, the next time the court hears your application for appointed counsel, politely inform him/her that another judge keeps letting the "Ms. [fill in name}" out of my case. I'm going in circles. Please appoint someone else. However, if she keeps withdrawing because you tell her you want someone else, then the only way you will be allowed to have someone else is to hire one.See question
She had a couple of felony charges and currently has 60 something years. She is a model prisoner. But 60 years is crazy she will be dead before then. Is there litterally anything I can possible do to reduce her sentence. Pay on her fines or anythi...
alao, if she has served at least 5 of the years, she can apply for a pardon or commutation of sentence. there is no cost for that. application and instructions can be found on the website of the OK Pardon and Parole.See question

need a bondsman to take care of the warrant. need an attorney to help with the charges. picking up new charges while on probabtion is not a light matter. some counties will want some jail time unless they are pursuaded otherwise.
if he is indigent, unfortunately he will need to surrender and sit in jail until he can be granted either an OR bond or a redecued bond amount.
I have multiple warrants around the state of Oklahoma and have recently found a new job. But prior to being hired I need to get rid of any outstanding warrants and legal issues. No felonies all misdemeanors
the fastest way to resolve warrants is to post bond on them. that keeps your options open on how to handle them. cash bond is your best option but if that's too much money you can go through a bondsman.See question

hire a good trial attorney. This case needs to be set for trial. That's the only way to force the State to actually take a good look at their "victim" and see how she'll sound on the stand. But even then, DA's would rather present bad evidence and let a judge dismiss it or a jury find him not guilty than to agree to drop charges, except in the rare case where DA is convinced there was no crime. But if not, case will have to go to trial.See question
Hello, I had I drunk scuffle with an ex girlfriend a few years ago that left me with several serious charges. Restraining (2 counts of domestic strangulation) and taking the car keys because "it's snowing and our drunk, you aren't leaving" (kidnap...
the DA will have to agree to any changes on the length of time if the deferred was a result of a plea agreement. They are already familiar with the facts, so the same facts aren't going to be enough. And you just finished the supervised portion.
you'll need to make a good showing as to why the outcome you agreed to should be shortened without even completing half.
talk to your lawyer (or hire a different one) to discuss in detail.
I was charged with a felony demostic A@B second offense in 2010. It is 7 years past that now and i want to know if a potential employer can see my background or if there is some way i can get it off of my record?
You can pull your own background from OSBI to see exactly what is on there. that is what an employer would see.
You don't state if you plead to the charge and what the result was (conviction or deferred). if deferred, you have to wait until 5 years after the deferred sentence ended. (if 5 year deferred +5 =10 years from date of plea)
If convicted (suspended sentence or prison), must receive a pardon and wait 10 years from date of conviction.
This assumes the law does not change between now and then. a change in the law could either make it eligible sooner or not at all.
if by chance your case was dismissed without a plea, you don't have to wait.
I was parked at a park after closing hours and I had a pipe, a rolling device and a grinder in my glovebox. I was not smoking at the time, just eating my dinner from a fast food place. I informed the police officers where the stuff was and gave hi...
the only thing I will add is that you need to start detoxing from marijuana and get used to not using it or having it. the most common condition of probation for possession cases is random UA's (drug tests). and it can take at least 20 days to clear (or longer) it might help your attorney's negotiations if you can test clean by the time you enter a plea.See question
Before I ask any questions, thank you to all that reply. My paid lawyer told me I had to waive my PLH or take a deal. He wanted to walk, but they said no. I waived and my DCA is coming up very soon. My lawyer refuses to tell me what to expect. So,...
A district court arraignment is a "formal arraignment" after the preliminary hearing. For some counties, all you will do is show up, plead not guilty and be given a new date that most courts call a "pre-trial conference." Some counties will also take plea agreements that day.
Your lawyer cannot withdraw without permission of the court. Usually after the PH stage, a lawyer has to have a good reason to be let out. The most common reason is conflict between the lawyer and the client (for whatever reason)
if you're not happy with your lawyer, you should hire a different lawyer sooner rather than later. Just be aware that a different lawyer may or may not be able to give you better options.
