About nine months ago, I pled 'no contest' to my first DWI charge, was convicted and received no jail time or further suspensions. However, I was informed by the judge that it was mandatory for me to purchase and maintain SR-22 insurance (which I ...
The lord works in mysterious ways, and so does the Texas DPS. I suspect that it may be a privacy issue - other people have access to those records.
In my 30 plus years of practice, whenever somebody asks me why so and so did such and such, I say "Why don't you ask them?"
You could call the DPS to ask, or go to a local office, but you'll likely get a different answer from each employee you ask. But if you just HAVE to get an answer, that would be my advice. But what difference does it make?

This is my first dwi charge. Which is ridiculous because. I believe the only reason i was pulled over was because i made a u turn on yellow light cop saw that and pulled me over. I want to know what are lawyers forms of payment? Like can i do paym...
Frankly, I don't know if any attorneys who do not allow payment plans, but I guess that it's possible that some do not. If you were stopped only for making a legal U-turn, and no other reason, then you should be able to get your case dismissed with what is called a motion to suppress. An attorney can assist you with that.
Best wishes for a successful outcome on your case!See question
My husband was arrested for a DWI exactly 2 years ago. It was finally filed in court in March 2015 but a court date has not been assigned. Does the 2 year statute of limitation still stand since he has not been charged or indicted? Or because the ...
If it occurred in December 2014 and was filed in March 2015, then the statute of limitations will not prevent the case from going forward. You should however have a pretty good chance of getting the case dismissed upon constitutional speedy trial grounds. You would be well advised to find a lawyer who has already won several speedy trial motions to dismiss on other cases. Experience in a litigating such matters can make a big difference!
Good luck to you!See question
This was my 2nd DUI and I was placed on two years probation and was required to have an interlock for two years. When my probation ended the interlock company said that I would need to petition the court to have the interlock removed. I had a Dall...
I agree with the other attorneys. This isn't a complicated issue at all, and it shouldn't take longer than a week to get this done.See question
My boyfriend is in jail his attorney received a pass slip and in the other box it says admonishment and in the plea bargain box it says 7 years in prison. I'm just trying to get a better understanding of things.
I completely agree with Mr. Miller, who is an excellent lawyer in the Dallas area. I would add that in most cases, but not all, plea offers that are written on the pass slip can be improved upon. For example, the seven years could be bargained down to five years, or possibly even probation.See question
My boyfriend likes to antique and a friend gave him an antique firearm and was going to sell it. He was pulled over by State Trooper and even though WE have rights to say no we don't want the car searched the Trooper did it anyway (He has a civil...
Attorney Bain provided you with a very accurate and detailed explanation. I would only add this: If it was an illegal search the case gets dismissed, antique or not.See question
i have 12 months of probation everything as of my Lifeskill class as well as my community service is basically complete; i have like 3 days to finish my life skills class and i have to do 10 hrs of community service each month i have 65 commun...
Your question is rather rambling and I'm not 100% sure that I understand it. It sounds to me like you are saying that you have three days left to complete your life skills program and still owe only five hours of community service plus $900 in fees. Depending on the offense, it sounds like they might be trying to release you early from probation once everything is taken care of. Talk to your probation officer first - that is why they are there - then an independent lawyer if necessary.See question

I agree with Ms. Branan and would add that under the Dallas County grand jury system a case heard on November 15th will typically report out on November 17th (later today). Good luck!See question
Two years ago, I got a DWI and was put on probation. I ended up having it revoked and served time. Since my case is over and my interlock isn't a condition of my license any longer, is there a way to take care of it myself?
For many judges getting an interlock removal order can be a pretty simple thing. It sounds like you have an absolute right to have your interlock removed. Call the court or better yet go there in person and ask them what steps you need to take. Assuming that your stated facts are accurate, the judge will probably grant you an order immediately.See question
I was told by a detective that I have a felony warrant. The detective told me to get a bonds man, and we can do a walk through. I called several bonds companies and none of them can locate my warrant. I called the police department that this detec...
Actually, you can't. You can only check to see if a warrant has been entered in a given warrant data base. The police have various options available to them, one of which is to obtain a "pocket warrant," which sounds like your situation. With a pocket warrant, the officer gets a judge to issue a warrant based upon probable cause, then simply puts it in his or her "pocket.". Nobody else knows about it, or can find it.
They do this when they want to personally arrest you, typically to question you in an attempt to get a statement, and preferably a confession from you. Contact the detective to turn yourself in, but DO NOT GIVE THEM A STATEMENT. See "Don't talk to police" on YouTube for more detailed info about that.See question
