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

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

You're looking at the Dallas county online records site. " Misdemeanor reduction - sentence probated" means he was originally charged with a felony, but had it dropped to a misdemeanor and given probation. That happened on 11-4-16: November 4, 2016. He should be released either immediately, or after a short jail stay if he was given some time in jail as a condition of his probation .See question
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

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
