Roy Lee Warren's answer You should remember whether you were ever charged with a DWI. If you took some other plea you would not have a DWI but you cannot get deferred adjudication for a DWI so if you had probation for a DWI, sorry that would be what it is. Many times people can plea to reckless driving instead. Go to the DPS website and check to see if you have that on your record. Best of luck.
Roy Lee Warren's answer Your information is not a rare occurrence. Police reports almost always have errors and a person that is under the BAC can still be charged (and convicted) of a DWI because the test is whether the person has "normal use of their mental or physical faculties" It is anyone's guess whether a person has their "normal" use. As for the state taking its sweet time, I actually like that because people's memories change over time and witnesses go missing, or they change jobs. Also if she were to...
Roy Lee Warren's answer i AM SORRY BUT YOU WILL NEED TO REPOST YOUR QUESTION AS AN IMMIGRATION QUESTION SO YOU WILL GET MORE QUALIFIED ANSWERS. (sorry bout caps) President Trump has caused many changes so a person up to date on immigration needs to help you. Best of luck to you.
Dustan Neyland's answer Car insurance companies base their decision to set rates or cancel an insured based on risk. Having an intoxication offense on your record can certainly be a reason for non-renewal/cancellation or increased rates.
Roy Lee Warren's answer I will venture an educated guess and say, probably not but the school districts may each have their own policy on such events. Look to your HR policies in your handbook provided by your employer.
Grant St Julian III's answer There are ways to keep your license even if you are convicted on a DWI - 1st offense. You must be granted probation and successfully complete a DWI education class as a part of the probation to avoid a DPS imposed license suspension after conviction. Also note there is another ground for license suspension regrading the breath/blood test performed at the time of the stop. Confer with a local attorney for more details. Good luck.
Kiele Linroth Pace's answer DWI is a criminal offense so he should apply for a court appointed attorney. However, being found incompetent has other serious ramifications that he should discuss with his attorney.
Grant St Julian III's answer I have had cases where it took 11 months for the crime lab to return test results. The State has 2 years from the date of offense to file the charging instrument with the court. Good luck.
Grant St Julian III's answer If your father has dementia, make sure a competency hearing is performed before anything else. Bring documentation of his medical condition to court. Unless you have been designated as his guardian or are a licensed attorney, however, you will not be able to "represent" your father in this matter. Good luck.
Grant St Julian III's answer First, your license suspension is a separate proceeding from the DWI. If a blood sample was taken on your DWI, it may take several months for the crime lab to return the results, which causes a delay in the filing of the criminal case. Call an attorney in your area; don't wait for a phone call. Good luck.
Grant St Julian III's answer It depends on the specific charge and the ultimate disposition of the case (accident or no accident, blood alcohol concentration and prior dwi offenses are all factors). Call the attorney who represented you on the original case. Good luck.
Paul Looney's answer You are a "repeat" DWI offender based on your record. Not a felony DWI offender. However, if you are thinking about the possibility of it happening again, then your conduct has not been adjusted to assure it does not happen again. So, it WILL happen again ... eventually. Here's a clue. You live in a community that is heavily opposed to drunk drivers. Do not drive, even if you have just had a few. You are too young to drink if you cannot plan how you are going to get home. Just don't drive. Or...
Grant St Julian III's answer I would have nothing to do with this situation if I were you. If your wife wants to compete any documentation without your consent, that's up to her. I am also sure that anyone who is like a father to me would ask me to perpetrate a fraud upon the Court. Good luck.
