My Fiance was arrested on 09/02/2016 in Travis County for two warrants he had in two other counties. Williamson County picked him up on 09/08/2016 in which he was able to see the Magristrate and was advised that they have him listed for BOND FORF/...
I gather that the DWLI is the Williamson County case. He will need to go to jail call in one of the county courts to plead that out to time served, with or without counsel. In Williamson, the magistrate will appoint an attorney if the defendant wants one and and qualifies, which it sounds like he does. Since he has a case pending in Williamson, they won't release him to Nacogdoches until that case is complete, generally. Once that Williamson case is over, then the 10 days starts for Nacogdoches. I'm guessing that the case in Nacogdoches is a felony, as it's rare to see a no-bond for a misdemeanor, especially a DWLI. And if it is a felony and currently a no-bond, the judge is probably unlikely to set a low bond anyway, since either he bond-forfeited on that one too, or it is a Motion to Revoke Probation. So I wouldn't expect him to get out until he completes his case in Nacogdoches. Just guessing, but that's what makes sense.See question

I practice in Williamson County and if they are offering 10 days it means that you didn't want to do the Pretrial Intervention program, which is a diversionary program and results in a dismissal, and you don't want to take deferred adjudication probation either, which does not include a drivers license suspension and can be nondisclosed after completion. Even at that, prosecutors here regularly offer a reduction to a Class C if you take a drug class and get two negative UA's, or they offer time-served, which means you don't serve any more jail time and pay a fine and court costs. There are no public defenders in Williamson County. All of the attorneys who take appointments are private attorneys, so whoever you hire may also be on the appointment list anyway. I'm suspicious of your claim that with no criminal history at all, 10 days is the only offer.See question
P.O.M. >2oz is a class b misdemeanor in TX
Highly unlikely. It's not a traffic offense so nobody is going to tell them. If you are convicted and get a drivers license suspension and try to get an occupational license, they would find out and maybe raise your fees for that.See question

I practice in Williamson County and have never seen anyone revoked to prison for inability to pay, restitution or otherwise. Not saying it couldn't happen, but I've not seen it. If they file a Motion to Adjudicate they would most likely extend your probation to the maximum 10 years, if it isn't already 10 years. If they revoke you to prison, it's most likely that they'll never see another dime, so there's that. Can't tell you what might happen but good luck.See question
Did not know to summit documents of community service to probation officer til the end of term what to expect?
Yes, you violated the terms of probation. But if you actually did do the community service in a timely fashion and merely failed to report it, you might get a break. That's also if you didn't have any other violations. Get a lawyer and let him present the evidence to the prosecutor and probation department.See question
I allowed my underage son be with a girl that is overage, and now I wanna make a report on her. It's been over 2 years
Wow. You say you approved of your underage son "being with" an older girl. I assume your son was 16 or younger at the time and the girl was 19 or older. In Texas, it's not illegal for someone to have sex with someone under 17 if they are within 3 years of each other. If she was older than that, yes, it's sexual assault. But we have to talk about your motive here. It sounds kind of vicious. Why would you do that to someone, especially after 2 years? What does your son think about this? Many prosecutors would look cross-eyed at you for trying to do this, also. Could you be charged with endangering a child? Perhaps.See question

Your fact scenario is confusing. 12 months probation sounds like a misdemeanor. Parole is for a felony that someone went to prison for. Which is it? Ultimately, they can't prevent him from "ever" living with you. As long as he's on paper, they can set conditions for him including no contact with you. But once that's done, he can live wherever he wants.See question

In general in Texas, a warrant is required to make an arrest. The police can't make an arrest on the spot unless they witness the crime, except for family violence or a felony. I assume your case is a misdemeanor and they didn't witness it. That's why they had to let you go and get a warrant. Get a lawyer to check on the warrant, talk to a bondsman about getting released and then turn yourself in. If you have a lawyer he can show up with you and shorten the time it takes to get released on bond.See question
I was told bail was $10,000 for a friend, I put it up and later was told it turned out to be only $1,600 and the rest went to attorney fees. I don't remember authorizing this? The bail bondsman said that just the way it works? Is this right?
I've never heard of a bond company paying for an attorney. They're not even allowed to recommend an attorney, much less hire one. The bond amount is the amount the court requires be posted. That apparently was $10,000. The fee you paid the bondsman, $1600, was for the bondsman to promise to pay the court $10,000 if the defendant doesn't show up for court. I think you misunderstood what the bondsman was saying.See question
