My 3rd theft charge getting ready to go to court for in Collin country under <750
You will find out what the State's offer is when you go to court. Because you have prior thefts, this case could possibly be indicted as a felony. If it has not been and the misdemeanor DA catches this oversight, they will often threaten to indict if you do not accept their offer. With priors in Collin County, it is highly unlikely you will be offered deferred probation. The DA may offer you straight probation or she may offer you jail times (or even possibly a combination). Again, you will simply have to go to court and find out what their offer is at that time. Hopefully your attorney will be able to negotiate a better offer if he cannot find a way to get it reduced or dismissed after reviewing the State's evidence.See question
IN JAIL FOR AGG. ASSAULT W/DEADLY WEAPON ARRESTED ON 7-30-16 AS OF 8-16-16 STILL NOT FILED CASE OR CHARGED NO GRAND JURY INDICTMENT YET
Dallas County has a policy of releasing people in 10 business days on unfiled aggravated cases. That doesn't mean that person can't be held on something else. The law requires the person be given a PR bond if the case is not indicted within 90 days. His attorney is the best person to ask about the status of his case.See question

Maybe, maybe not. Your attorney will receive the states evidence and review it with you. If it looks unlikely you will win at trial, your attorney will start negotiating with the DA. The DA may or may not seek jail time. The DA may or may not come down off their original offer. Basically, you need to hire an experienced Attorney and let that person do Their job.See question

Judge White is a great Judge. He believes in giving people a chance to succeed in probation before sending them to prison. I have done many open pleas in front of him with great results. Of course no one can guarantee the outcome, but it sounds like his attorney has the right idea.See question

Absolutely not on either. You will always be a convicted felon and this will always be viewable to the public. The only way to remove this from your record is by receiving a pardon, which is nearly impossible to do.See question

I would consider going to the police station and filing a complaint with a sergeant. After talking to you and getting any possible contact information you have on your ex, they will likely stop.See question

If you have already pled to probation, your attorney's job is done. Unless you need to hire her again for a probation violation. You HAVE to report to probation. The fact that you are not reporting is a huge problem that needs to be remedied before you end up with a warrant. When a field officer sends a file to court, this is typically for a probation violation. Your attorney should be able to find this out through one conversation with the court's probation officer. If your attorney is unwilling to do this, you may need to go to court on your own. Chances are good there is about to be a warrant issued for a PV.See question
I was sent a notice I had 2 other charges than what I was booked in on 3 years ago to the date never knew anything about.
The Statute of Limitations for a misdemeanor in Texas is two years. This is how long the State has to file a case and does not have anything to do with warrants. Warrants do not expire. I can't tell from your description 1) what your offense date is, 2) when the warrants were issued, or 3) when the cases were filed. These are all important facts to discuss with your attorney. If the cases were filed two years ago and the State took no action to apprehend you or prosecute you, you may have a chance to get the cases dismisses due to a speedy trial violation. Best of luck.See question

A few thoughts. First and foremost, he is the one who needs help. It sounds like he is facing a new felony and a parole violation. As long as he is in custody, he will have a court appointed attorney. Of course, you are free to hire him one. He will not have an attorney appointed for his parole hearing; you would definitely have to hire one if you wanted him to have representation there. Parole may or may not issue a blue warrant. Sometimes they wait to see if the new felony is indicted or no-billed. Parole may or may not be influenced by the outcome of this case. If you do not want to see him charged, you need to start working with his attorney as soon as possible. Sometimes an indictment can be prevented in cases like this.
Also, you are describing a felony that requires two separate assaults. So even if the grand jury does not believe one of the assaults occurred, they may still return the case as a misdemeanor based on the other assault. This will likely also cause a parole violation.
And ultimately, it does not matter what your intention was. If you were in danger, you were right to call the police. It is up to the State, not you, whether or not to prosecute him based on the evidence.
If you are seeking to help him, you should start interviewing local, experienced defense attorneys as soon as possible. Best of luck.See question

You don't have to a citizen or even in the country legally to enjoy police protection against crimes. Police do not typically report crime victims to ICE, because that would discourage these people from reporting crimes committed against them. Obviously law enforcement cannot allow people to be robbed, beaten, etc. simply because they are not here legally.
You need to be interviewing criminal defense attorneys. There will be several ways to keep a conviction off your record. Most of us offer free consultations. Just call a few who practice in your area to discuss the facts of your case and find out about their fees and payment plans.See question
