14 Questions Answered
- Q. arrested with DWI 3rd but brought evidence that DWI 2nd was dismissed DWI 3rd dismissed
- A: If you are set for a jury trial you need to have a criminal defense lawyer representing you. Could you get the resisting dismissed? You need a lawyer to see how likely that is. Most prosecutors are reluctant to dismiss resisting cases, but I'm not sure which court this is in. Can you ask for permission to sue? You don't really need permission to sue, you need the right facts and a great lawyer. The problem is in Texas it's almost impossible to sue the police. They have immunity in many cases. Still, you need to hire a lawyer to defend you in the criminal case. That's the first thing to focus on.
- Q. Okay last night this guy I had been seeing told me to come over and to bring some drugs and I wanted to see him so I
- A: What you do is meet with a defense lawyer. If he called the police on you, then he might have told the police you broke the law, and the police might want to investigate what happened. Which makes you a possible suspect. You NEVER talk to the police in this situation. You hire a lawyer to talk to the police.
- Q. How long do i have to file A GRIEVIENCE
- A: Try this- https://www.texasbar.com/AM/Template.cfm?Section=File_a_Grievance&Template=/CM/HTMLDisplay.cfm&ContentID=29656
- Q. How do I handle a void indictment
- A: I'm not sure what he was trying to get from the district clerk. But an indictment is a record of the grand jury proceeding in that is shows the result of the proceeding. What do you need to do? I'm not sure what the goal is. What is the trying to find out?
- Q. My boyfriend is back in jail for Misd A Fam/Violence. I dropped charges last year so this is the only charge. Probation?
- A: Is probation an option? Probably but that depends on many factors such as the facts of the case, boyfriend's criminal history, which court/county you are in etc. He needs a lawyer to help him. You need to find options for women in an abusive relationship. If money is a reason you are staying with this guy, then maybe there are resources available that could help you leave until he gets help. Would you want your 20-year-old daughter with a guy who gets drunk and assaults her? Of course not. So don't model that for her.
- Q. in Texas if you quash indictment for errors can they if there were fatal errors in the enhancement clause
- A: Quashing an indictment is a complicated issue. Without seeing the indictment it's impossible to tell you if it can be quashed. You need to take the indictment to a lawyer so that person can review it and offer some real legal advice.
- Q. TX quashing felony indictment. Errors. Of facts in the enhancement clause of indictment ,reindictment/or matter quashed
- A: You need to hire a lawyer. Don't try to file your own writ or Motion to Quash. If you care about the outcome have an experienced professional help.
- Q. If you know Police have tampered with evidence do you submit an Affidavit to the ADA or do you hire an Attorney to file?
- A: You should hire a lawyer. Getting a prosecutor (ADA) to believe the police changed your statement is going to be very difficult. If you are the Defendant in this case, or a suspect, then you should not talk to a prosecutor. If you are just a witness, and in no way involved in this situation beyond being a witness, then it's less risky to inquire about your own statement. However, if you aren't 100% sure you are not a suspect then don't take any chances and hire a lawyer.
- Q. what is the legal term for someone who had never been in trouble their whole life (60 years) except for a 2 month period
- A: There isn't one. What happened in the two months?
