I was summoned as a witness for state of texas against my ex husband. I have a class a, deferred, that is disclosed. Can his attorney open it while in court?
I assume that you received deferred and the case was dismissed. If these are the correct facts than no they can not use the case against you in court.
Call the Washington County DA and voice your concerns. If you are on probation for a felony or misdemeanor involving moral turpitude, then you may be cross examined about it.
I am not intending this to be legal advice, because I don't know the particulars of your situation. Call me if you would like to discuss this or other isues.
I assume without knowing that by disclosed you mean an order of non-disclosure has been entered. The answer, similar to the advice already given, is that it depends on what the class a was for. If you mean class a felony (from another state - Texas has degrees of felonies and classes for misdemeanors), then it may be used against you in court. If you mean class a misdemeanor, then it depends on whether or not it is a crime of moral turpitude (e.g. Theft, Fraud, and other crimes or acts of dishonesty).
