My friend went through two trials and during the second trial the jury came back with a guilty verdict on two of the lesser counts of the case. The jury then deliberated for 2 days on the sentence and couldnt come to a decision. At that point the ...
Yes, there would be a new jury selected, then the State would put on their entire case again. They have to put on all the evidence again since this new jury would know nothing about the facts. But the range of punishment would include only the lower charges. Typically, unless the State has a case involving serious injuries or death, at least in Tarrant County, the prosecutors will offer a better deal after a hung jury ("mistrial") to move the case.See question

This is a Class C citation. Look at the municipality's website for steps you can take to prevent a conviction. In the alternate, hire a criminal defense attorney who regularly handles citations/tickets.See question
how do they cound the days. and would I be able to get out on time to go to work if I go into work at 4am?
If you report 8 p.m. Friday night and stay until 5:00 a.m. Monday morning, you will get credit for 4 days. You could ask the judge if she/he would allow your release at 3:00 a.m. But you wouldn't get much sleep! Typically the judge wants defendant to keep his/her job. Try to explain your situation to the judge and see what can be worked out. I am presuming your attorney did not already work this out prior to your plea. You not need to hire an attorney though to handle this. Just go talk to the judge.See question
I developed a Retroperiteneal hematoma(KIDNEY BLEED) and went into respiratory arrest and was intubated in 2015. I noted several months on line that there was a class action against Warfarin but can't find an attorney
You have incorrectly posted this under DUI/DWI. Your question is not related to criminal law, in particular a driving while intoxicated arrest. You need to find a civil attorney who specifically handles class action lawsuits.See question
I have 2 previous state jail felonies drug convictions in Dallas county which I pleaded out w 1244a on both. and I have theft misdermeanor and cause a new charge In Dec in Tarrant County which was enhanced to 3rd degree state jail felony . I have ...
Your current theft charge, according to your description, is misdemeanor charge enhanced to a state jail felony because of your previous theft convictions. But this current charge is enhanced again up to a third degree felony because you already have two state jail convictions. So your criminal history brings you up to a range of punishment of 2 to 10 years in prison. It appears that your court-appointed attorney has negotiated a REDUCTION back to a state jail. The range of punishment on a state jail is 6 months to 2 years in prison. Your attorney has gotten you the lowest possible sentence, 6 months state jail. The 12.44a sentences (felony conviction, served in local county jail) were long ago and far away. You have continued to commit crimes so don't expect any 12.44a offer from the Tarrant County prosecutor. But I'm sure some other attorney will be happy to take your money to get you the lowest possible sentence, even if your current attorney HAS ALREADY OBTAINED that for you. if I were in your shoes, I would be thanking your court-appointed attorney for obtaining the lowest possible sentence for your. Just being real...See question
I been on misdemeanor probation For a DWI( was driving while on Xanax, no alcohol in system) for two in a half years now. I was suppose to get off November 2016 but kept messing up (failing drug tests) so they extended me an extra year and put me...
As Ben said, yes there is a possibility the PO will have you do a hair follicle test. One condition of any and all probationers in Tarrant County is random drug testing, including hair follicle testing. Xanax gets the best of many folks. Try to utilize what you learned in rehab so that you won't be facing a felony DWI in the future. A felony DWI is the hardest probation to successfully complete, in my opinion, because the terms and conditions are so harsh. Take care of yourself. Best wishes.See question

Try to be patient. It may take two or three weeks for your fiance' to get to Texas. My client was extradited from Pennsylvania about 4 years ago. It took him 22 days to get back here to Fort Worth. They travelled by bus and stopped along the way to pick up and drop off others. The officers are not going to disclose his location to you.See question
If someone needed a couple stitches under 10 would that be considered serious bodily harm. He got cut with a beer bottle.

The range of punishment an be up to one year in Tarrant County Jail and a fine up to $4,000. I would recommend you talk with a criminal defense attorney quickly to discuss possible defenses and to discuss the possibility of a deferred programs. You could also see if you might qualify for a court appointed attorney. But if you qualify for a deferred program, you must file your application within 30 days of the case's filing.See question
How many yrs. No criminal background .
First of all I presume you mean he has no other criminal convictions outside of the 4 DWIs. If a person has two prior DWIs, the third arrest would be a 3rd degree felony. If a person has 3 priors - including the felony conviction, the fourth arrest would be a 2nd degree felony. The range of punishment for either felony includes a probation of 2-10 years. Third degree prison time can be as low as 2 years and as high as 10 years. Second degree prison time is 2 to 20 years.See question
