    Macy’s Answer

    No attorney will know what is possible in your case until they review the State's evidence and start negotiating with the DA. Your chances of a reduction would certainly be better without priors. My guess is that a reduction is a long shot, but nothing is impossible. Just hire a good lawyer and let that person get to work.

  • What to do about probation officer sending revoke of non ajudication probation to judge?

    My probation officer sent my file to the judge for a revoke of my non ajudication probation. What can I do to find out what is going on. It has been three months. My lawyer has not found out anything. Can he call the judge or the probation court ...

    If your case is in Dallas County, your attorney should be communicating with the court's probation officer. This will allow you to stay ahead of the warrant. I have done this many times and it is a pretty simple process. Sometimes getting the file to the court officer takes awhile--especially if you report out of county.

  • What are the requirements of the timing for filings of criminal complaints in Texas?

    I showed up to arraignment today to plead not guilty. I requested a copy of the criminal complaint only to discover one had not been completed yet. Is there any legal recourse to motion for a dismissal at this time? Thank you.

    Macy’s Answer

    The state has two years to file a misdemeanor and at least three on a felony. So unless your offense was more than two years ago, a motion to dismiss is premature. Once you hire an attorney, they will take over and explain the process to you in greater detail.

  • Can I ask or tell my probation officer not to talk to me ugly or bully me .

    I had received probation for a drug charge . I was appointed a probation officer who is bullying me and talks to me as if I am not human and I want to tell her to stop and respect me. This charge is my first ever in life and it was because I took ...

    Macy’s Answer

    Of course you can. But all that's going to do is increase the tension between you. Some POs are jerks. I recommend that you grin and bear it to avoid further conflict. That person weilds a tremendous amount of power in your life. Whether or not you are guilty is irrelevant now. You entered a voluntary plea and must complete your probation requirements to your officers satisfaction.

    Absolutely. Warrants do not expire. They likely issued a warrant at large for your arrest. You will need to turn yourself in and post a bond or risk getting arrested at any time. HOWEVER, you do not have to and I would suggest SHOULD NOT make any statement to the police. They are not "just trying to clear this up." And they are certainly not trying to help you out. They are building a case against you. You need to hire an experienced defense attorney as soon as possible. That person can talk to you about the facts in greater detail and advise you properly from there. Most of us offer free consultations. Just start calling around.

  • Can a clerk in a probation officer's office sign a motion to revoke probation, or, is the PO required to sign it?

    My daughter's case was set with 10 years probation in May of this year. On June 29, she was arrested on a MTR (motion to revoke). When shown the papers while being booked into the jail, her PO's name was nowhere on the papers, nor was the ADA's ...

    Macy’s Answer

    The DA has to sign the Motion to Revoke and the Judge has to issue the warrant. However, this does not mean that the revocation cannot proceed. The State can simply file a new motion if the signature is, in fact, a clerk's and not a DA's (although I would be surprised if you or your daughter knew every DA's signature--the DA that signs the motion does not have to be the same DA that signed her plea paperwork).

    Macy’s Answer

    No one is going to be able to tell you in advance what the outcome of his cases will be. I see the version of events that you have posted. In my experience, the version of events contained in the State's evidence will be different--maybe a little, maybe a lot. It sounds like he will be arguing self-defense. His attorney will receive all of the State's evidence, will review it with him, and will be better able to advise about the strengths and weaknesses of his case at that time. He needs to start interviewing attorneys as soon as possible.

  • Can you be arrested for being suicidal?

    If you get really drunk and become suicidal and tell the bartender that you are suicidal and they call the police - will the police come? If so what will they say or do? Will they automatically take you to jail or a hospital or what?

    Macy’s Answer

    They cannot arrest you, but they can transport you to a mental health facility if they determine that you are a danger to yourself or others.

    Macy’s Answer

    There are several steps that come to my mind. One is to continue to make police reports of any threatening or harassing behavior. Another is to contact the DAs office about seeking a protective order. And finally, hire a family law attorney to get temporary custody orders in place.
