If he wants to appeal his conviction, you need to look for an appellate attorney who practices in the state where he was convicted. An appeal (or a writ if his time to file an appeal has expired) is the only way to possibly reverse the conviction. Be prepared for a long, expensive process.See question
I completed my probation term with no issues and when I went to ask the judge for a release form to have the breathalyzer removed, she stated that since it was my second DWI that I need to keep it on my vehicle for an additional year.
State law requires an additional year of Interlock after discharge from probation on a DWI 2nd. She does not have the authority to allow removal before that date.See question
My fiance had a grand hearing 08/16/2017 and nothing has appeared on his paperwork what is taking so long or what's the next step
Grand Jury verdicts in Dallas do not report out for at least 48 hours (although no bills do often appear the same day). So you will likely see a true bill on the system tomorrow. Shortly after the true bill is issued, the trial court will set his case for a first appearance. If he's in custody, he has a court appointed attorney. If he's on bond, he needs to hire an attorney ASAP to appear with him at the first setting.See question
My common law husband was arrested for pulling a knife on me and choking me.i don't want him to go to prison but instead get help for drug which I believe was a part in his reaction.
2-20 is the punishment range on an Agg Assault Deadly Weapon. If you let the DA know that you think he needs drug treatment, they will take that into consideration. It may be possible for him to get probation with drug treatment instead of pen time.See question

Pretrial release is the same as being out on bond. You still have to go to court and handle your case. You will need an attorney to represent you. Call around and interview a few local attorneys until you find someone you are comfortable with in your price range. Best of luck.See question
My girlfriend had a POS. Cs. Sentenced 90 days 2 for 1. I have gone through the Dallas pages online a 100 times and still cannot find her release date????
You won't find a release date online. You just have to do the math. A Dallas sentence is 3 for 1. But you can't get 90 days on a PCS unless you get a 12.44.See question
My boyfriend lawyer said the prosecute is going to offer him probation if his hearing is tomorrow and he agrees to the probation how long does it take for them to release him?
It depends on several factors. Even if he agrees to probation, he may need to complete a presentencing interview before the judge will sign off on the plea and place him on probation. Also, he could get 6-9 months in patient treatment as a probation condition, which he would have complete before being released. And finally, if it's a felony he could get up to 180 days in jail as a probation condition, which he would get no back tome credit for. So basically, those of us unfamiliar with his case can only guess.See question
