My friend downloaded photo's served 4 years in prison & received 5 years probation He has taken 3 Polygraph tests & has failed all 3 . What might happen to him
He could have his probation revoked, which means he would go back to prison, or he could have his probation modified, which could include treatment, counseling, days in jail as a condition of probation, or any number of other "reasonable terms and conditions of probation." It's completely up to the judge, who will most likely rely upon the recommendations of the probation department as well as the State.See question
So I was parked in a parking lot, and I fell asleep in the car. I was taken to the hospital by an ambulance, I also refused to do a blood test or a breathalyzer so I received a paper stating that my license will be suspended in 40 days. When I ...
Was your blood taken as part of your "treatment" at the hospital? If so, (1) they could be waiting on your blood test results, or (2) they could have received those results - they were under the legal limit - and they didn't file DWI charges. They also may not have filed DWI charges because they couldn't prove that you were "operating" your motor vehicle, which is required by the DWI statute. As the others mentioned, just refusing to give them a breath or blood sample will cause your license to be suspended for 180 days if it's your first offense, all the way up to 2 years, depending on whether you have prior DWI or alcohol related contacts.See question
Okay, so today I had my interview taken and I passed my test, both, English, U.S. history and government test. But my IO chose B: A decision cannot be made yet about your application. What does that mean? May I in trouble or anything? Is it unusua...
I'm assuming this is an immigration question? If so, you should seek the advice of a local immigration attorney. Try searching AVVO under the subject area of Immigration Law. You have posted this question in the DWI practice area.See question
My first DWI was 30 plus years ago. I am 54 and have not had trouble since last night. I was pulled over and given the test. I failed the test. I am pretty sure I would have failed it 100% sober. I have a medical condition with my legs so walking ...
Saying "I would have failed it 100% sober", presumes you were not sober. Did you mean to say "I failed it, and i was 100% sober." Either way, you need a local DWI lawyer. Best of luck.See question
First time DWI, on probation
One judge I know of uses it if he suspects the person has been drinking, otherwise, it is not widely used in Harris County.See question
Arrested and charged with a dwi or dui in bastrop tx - bastrop county
I'll take a stab at this. Once a citizen requests a copy of their DWI video from the law enforcement agency employing the officer who made the stop and arrest, that police agency has a duty to give you a copy of any video showing the stop, the arrest, and any interaction between you and the officer including you performing the field sobriety tests and/or any procedures where your breath or blood specimen was taken. You are entitled to this as a matter of law courtesy of Article: 2.139 (B.) of the Texas Code of Criminal Procedure. Now, If the police agency claims that they lost the video, that fact is admissible at trial. That is to say, the jury gets to hear that the police had a duty to create a video, that they did so, and then lost it or destroyed it If you feel that the video would exonerate you, and they lost it. Hope this helps.See question
I paid a retainer and first month to an attorney for a DWI case. He has stopped contact. The public defender is still listed on my paperwork. I am almost sure I have lost my license. I have a warrant issued for my arrest. He said that he would try...
You have alleged several possible ethical violations here, the least among them being the duty to keep a client reasonably informed about the status of their case. Whether the lawyer charged you a retainer of $1000 or $10,000, the same duty to act in a professional manner is owed. If you feel your lawyer has violated the Texas Disciplinary Rules Of Professional Conduct, you have the right to file a grievance with the State Bar of Texas. They take all ethical violations seriously, and will conduct an investigation. If warranted, they will discipline the lawyer. If not, they won't.
Regarding your drivers license - If this was your first DWI, you are facing a 90 suspension of your license if you gave a specimen of your breath or blood that exceeded the .08 limit. This period of suspension is increased to 180 days if you refused to give a specimen. If you agreed to give a blood specimen that turns out to be under the .08 limit, there will be no suspension. That 15 days you mentioned, was the time you had from the date of your arrest, to request an Administrative License Revocation (ALR) hearing - to contest your stop and subsequent arrest for DWI. If this hearing was not requested, your license will be suspended forty (40) days from the date of the stop. Finally, I want to know if (1) you signed a written contract with the lawyer, and (2) why you have an open warrant? Good luck.
I have had a charge for POM less then 2oz. (Had about 1.5g) at the time with 13 counts of paraphernalia. Now 10 of those counts were dropped, now I was set on probation. Then a couple of days after signing the paperwork I got a DWI I was 0.15 bac ...
It depends on how long it has been since you were arrested. They expect you to be dirty on your first UA. Marijuana stays in your system for up to 30 days, depending on how heavy a smoker you were. They expect those levels to go down, eventually hitting zero. If you have been on bond for more than 30 days before you took the plea, then you may have a problem. The judge can revoke, modify, or extend your probation. You need to speak to a local attorney who knows the policies of the court you're in. Hope this helps.See question

I would not do it. Take care of any open warrants first. One of the requirements for renewing your license online is that you have no open warrants or unpaid tickets. It stands to reason that if you appear in person, at a location filled with State Troopers, and you have open warrants, you are taking an unnecessary risk. Hope this helps.See question
My case was disposed in mid October. I still have my license, and according to the DPS website I am still eligible to drive. How long does it typically take for the DPS to suspend a license?
I agree with both of the attorneys and would simply add that sometimes "things" happen, and the license is never suspended. If I were you, I would go to the DPS website and check the status of my licence on a regular basis until such time I was convinced that the suspension was never reported. This is typically a clerk error. Hope this helps.See question
