I have to have a mammogram and the imaging center is asking people to wait in their car to be called to come inside. I feel that is ridiculous and Texas Health has that policy.

12.44 (b) it was reduced to a class A misdemeanor. But when I look at my records and charges it shows felony disposed instead of misdemeanor. Is this right? Should it really say felony disposed or misdemeanor? Please help.

If you mean affidavits of probable cause upon which is the basis to issue an arrest warrant or search warrant, in Texas the Judge is supposed to keep those or file them in a place that they are publicly available since they are matters of public record.
A warrant may be issued when there is probable cause to believe an offense occurred, so whether or not anyone pressed charges is irrelevant to the legality of a warrant. In a domestic assault case, the term "pressing charges" means the witness is helping the police and/or prosecutor...Read more »
