About two years ago, I got a DWI and ended up having it revoked. I served my time, took the DWI education course and am paying my surcharge. I was wondering about the next step in regards to finally getting my draeger interlock device uninstalled.
That's a little like asking how much does it cost to get a haircut. It depends on a number of factors. But you probably shouldn't have to spend any more than $250.See question
My warrant is based on disorderly conduct can i still get arrested for something minor?
I agree with attorney Clayton Smith. Clayton: Surely you have been to lusteric (Lew Sterrett) before?
"Lew Sterrett" is the name of the Dallas County jail. Mr. Sterrett is a former Dallas judge, and the jail was named in his honor.
The name is frequently misspelled, but perhaps never so badly as "lusteric.". LOLSee question
Arrested in June 2009, drugs were found in my apartment and cops had evidence of my boyfriend at the time drug dealing, they arrested me along with him, I was never charged by the DA . Trying to have the arrest cleared from my record, but also won...
Assuming that you have not been charged yet, the other answers are correct - The case would be barred by the statute of limitations. I have seen a few instances where someone was charged with a crime but was never notified about it for several years. There is no absolute requirement that law enforcement notify you if they've filed a charge. And if they've misspelled your name it takes much more than a casual computer check to verify that no charges have ever been filed. However even if your situation falls into one of those unusual categories you might still be able to get your case dismissed on speedy trial grounds, and subsequently expunged.
Best of luck to you!See question
I was arrested and its been 3 months since my arrest and I have never been formally charged by the DA's office yet.
In Texas, there is no statute of limitations for murder, sexual assault, or indecency with a child, along with a few other crimes. If you are GUILTY, hire a lawyer as soon as possible and start planning your defense. If you are NOT guilty, hire a lawyer as soon as possible and start planning your defense. If you aren't sure, hire a lawyer as soon as possible and start planning your defense. The road ahead for you is likely very rough indeed. The very best of luck to you!See question
My brother was recently shot by a police officer and he has been in the hospital for a week now. We have not been allowed to see or talk to him. We haven't even been able to talk to the doctor or nurses. The hospital won't acknowledge that he is t...
You haven't talked to him. You haven't talked to the nurses or doctors. The hospital won't acknowledge his presence.
What hospital? How do you even know he is there? Could he be in another hospital? Or in jail by now? Have you contacted the press? They are usually right on top of any police shootings.See question
My probation officer has extended my time by 3 months because I have not paid off court fees . I have paid off all probation fees . I thought court fees are different department from probation. Is he allowed to extend my time just for that reason
I agree with the others. If your probation is extended, you'll have more monthly probation fees and more trips to your probation officer. Try to get everything paid off ASAP and get this all behind you!See question
A cop wants to interview me due to a fraud allegation. I contacted a lawyer and asked him to talk to the officer to get more info on the matter. The police told him that he is not going to arrest me and the interview is for 2 hours. Now my questi...
You write that a police officer wants to interview you regarding a fraud allegation. Don't do it. Just say no. If you have a lawyer, refer them to your lawyer.
For a thorough discussion about what can happen if you DO talk to the police, go to YouTube and search under the heading "Don't Talk to Police." There you will find an eye-opening 48 minute lecture jointly presented by a law school professor and a police officer. If my clients express a continued desire to talk to the police against my advice, I instruct them to watch this video first. If they take the time to watch this video, they usually decide not to talk. Take the time. It might be the most important 48 minutes of the year for you.
You haven't been arrested or charged with a crime yet. If you want that to change, talk to the police!
Best of luck to you!See question
I have 9 months left until my license can be reinstated in California. If I can get a restricted license in Texas I would also be interested to see if it might add additional time to the restriction. Thank you!
Absolutely! As long as you had a driver's license in California and it was suspended for reasons other than physical or mental disability or impairment, you should be able to get a Texas Occupational Driver's License (Texas Transportation Code Section 521.242.) A Texas judge can allow you to drive anywhere in the state of Texas and up to 12 hours in any 24 hour calendar day.See question
I was charged with possession of a cs. Class b misdemeanor, and my initial court date was suppose to be at the middle of January of 2014, but when I arrived that morning, they told me to call in and check every week to see if my case has been file...
I agree with the other answers, but this particular problem is unique to Dallas county. On misdemeanor cases, the sheriff's office gives you a fictitious court date (to check the misdemeanor "bulletin board") before they even know if a case will be filed against you, which is complete BS. I've seen people trudge down to the courthouse unnecessarily every two weeks for over a year checking to see if they have a court date.
Either hire an attorney to take care of this for you, or figure out how to monitor it online so you can save numerous wasted trips to the court house.See question
