All that is usually required is for you to be in the lawyer's office when he or she call the detective. If a deal can be made,...Read more »
Please ask a question. But just for information puroses, deferred adjudication probations are not allowed in DWI cases in Texas. If probation is granted in a Texas DWI, it is only granted after a defendant is found guilty (i.e., convicted) of the offense, so it can never be deferred.
Neither of the offenses I’m on probation for are drug related. I failed a drug test for the first time and completely stopped smoking, I got tested again about 30 days later and am worried I didn’t pass. I took an at home test and passed two and the third one came up positive for thc. I’m... Read more »
Marihauana is fat-soluble, meaning it can stay in a person's body for several weeks, maybe even as long a 3 months. If you stopped smoking pot immedialtely after the first test, you should be fine, even if it shows up on the second test, so long as it shows a lower score in line with your...Read more »
Your son's new case is a felony. Will he get time? If your son is found guilty as charged, the Court must sentence him to a term of imprisonment. (You seem to be assuming he will "lose" his case. He might win the case.) Even if he's convicted and sentenced to prison, he may...Read more »

Deferred adjudication means that the finding of guilty has been put off (deferred) for the duration of your probation. If you violate the terms of your probation by failing to perform your community service, the judge can enter a finding of guilt. This would constitute a conviction for theft, which...Read more »
Yes you will be allowed more time to shop for retained counsel if you were appointed a lawyer a few days before your first setting in court.

Sounds like you pleaded guilty or "no contest" (same as guilty plea). If you pleaded guilty pursuant to a plea bargain, there's almost noithing you can do at this stage. There's no "King'sX" in Court. You can't accept a plea offer, get the deal done by...Read more »

If the facts are as you claim and you were unaware your friends were headed to the Verizon store to commit a strong-arm robbery, you are an innocent victim just like the phone company. Well, not JUST like the phone company, but innocent nonetheless.

I believe you're asking the wrong question, but I'll go ahead and answer it before I talk about the right question.

Being on bond does not necessarily disqualify a person from having a lawyer appointed to represent him/her. The person may have become unable to hire a lawyer because he spent most or all of his money on the bond. Often the person on bond didn't pay for his own release, rather friends or...Read more »

Of course having drugs in your system can affect your probation. However, the fact that your probation officer is requiring you to go to detox means he or she already believes or actually has evidence that you have used drugs in violation of the terms and conditions of your probation.
