From the very limited info given, I must assume there was a Petition to revoke your probation. Once the State files a Petition to revoke your probation, the court can hold the hearing, allow a deal between the DA and the Defendant, or dismiss the petition and thus, dismiss the case.

You need to consult your divorce attorney and move to hold him in contempt in the divorce case. He will likely have to hold you harmless on the debt regardless.

There is no valid reason to do this. Make your friend buy their own drugs, with their own money.

I am not guilty, I had no knowledge of the marijuana being in my vehicle, and I denied the police permission to search my vehicle. I want to get my case dismissed.

Getting a dismissal in a case like this isn't about filing motions and forms.

Once the admission of possession of an illegal substance was made, the officer had a legal right to search your car. Whether the officer was going to "bust up" your car or impound your vehicle to perform an inventory search is speculation. Call your lawyer. Good luck.

I got arrested in Waller Texas in October of 2020 and it’s almost been 180 days since I’ve been out. I had an arraignment but i read online that if I don’t have an indictment that I can fight to get my case dropped and was wondering if this was true.

If the case is dismissed now then you will be released from the bond. However, if you are later indicted an arrest warrant will be issued because you are no longer on bond. The state has up to 3 years to indict you for most felonies so should be sure that the prosecutors don't want the case... Read more »
