I was going through my website, and I realized it had been a while since I had updated my Recent Court Victories. While I am waiting for the web masters to update that portion of the page, I thought writing something a little more comprehensive in a blog might be helpful. 

In January of 2014, I got a Driving While Intoxicated case for C.M. reduced to an Obstruction of a Highway Passageway in Travis County Court at Law # 7.   It was a breath test case.  C.M. blew a 0.113 and a 0.117.  On the video he did well on the field sobriety tests.  He did the 12 hour DWI education class and MADD victim impact panel up front.    He was sentenced to 15 months deferred adjudication probation.  He had to pay court costs and do 40 hours of community service.  He successfully completed community supervision in April 2015.  We will be filing a Petition for Non-Disclosure in April 2017.

I know this is a lot of detail.  Most attorneys would just list this as a dismissal of the driving while intoxicated charge on their website, but I think it is important for you to get an idea of what real outcomes there are out there.

In February 2014, I got a case for K.M. dismissed in Caldwell County Court at Law.  She was charged with possession of a controlled substance.  It was charged as a Class A misdemeanor in Caldwell County though it could have been charged as a felony since it was amphetamine that was possessed. (The client possessed prescription ADHD medication, which is typically charged as a felony.  The state here charged it as a Class A possession of a controlled substance more than 3 grams less than 28 grams, which is typically reserved for most other prescription medications possessed without a prescription.)  I had the client take the Texas Drug Offender Education Course and the prosecutor agreed to dismiss the case with proof of completion.

In February 2014, I got a case for W.F. dismissed in exchange for a deferred prosecution agreement, which required him to do counseling as recommended by Travis County Counseling and Education Service.  He was charged with assault causing bodily injury family violence in Travis County Court at Law # 4.

In February 2014, I got a case for Z.D. dismissed.  He was charged with possession of marijuana less than two ounces in Williamson County Court at Law # 1.  I had him complete two clean urine tests 30 days apart and take the Texas Drug Offender Education Program, and the prosecutor agreed to dismiss.

In March 2014, I got a case for A.H.  reduced from a boating while intoxicated (BWI) to a criminal attempt boating while intoxicated.  The case was in the Bell County Court at Law.

In March 2014, I got a case for G.E. dismissed.  He was charged with possession of marijuana less than two ounces.  I had him take the Texas Drug Offender Education Program and the state dismissed.  The case was in Travis County Court at Law # 8.

In March 2014, I got a case for A.B. dismissed.  She was charged with driving while license invalid/suspend in Williamson County Court at Law # 3.  I helped her clear her driver’s license.  Once she had a clear driver’s license, and we showed proof to the prosecution the charges were dismissed.

In March 2014, I got a case for Q.G. dismissed.  She was charged with assault causing bodily injury family violence in the Bell County Court at Law.  We set the case for jury trial.  On the day of trial, the state dismissed. 

In March 2014, I got a case for Y.A. dismissed.  He was charged with assault causing bodily injury family violence in Williamson County Court at Law # 1.   He successfully completed pre-trial diversion.

In March 2014, I got a case for A.R. dismissed.  He was charged with a driving while intoxicated in Williamson County Court at Law # 2.  There was no blood or breath in his case.  There was only a video.  He did not look too bad on the video.  The officer said in his report and testified at the administrative license review hearing that he believed the client was under the influence of both alcohol and marijuana.  Ultimately, the client plead guilty an obstruction of a highway passageway.  He was placed on 12 months deferred adjudication probation.  He was given 48 hours of community service, a $300 fine, and ordered to pay $262 in court costs.  He completed probation successfully in April 2015.  We will be filing a Petition of Non-Disclosure in April 2017.

In April 2014, I got a case for T.L dismissed in exchange for pretrial diversion.  She was charged for theft of more than $50 less than $500, a Class B Misdemeanor in Travis County Court at Law # 7

In April 2014, I got a case for S.S. dismissed.  He was charged with felony impersonating a peace officer in the Caldwell County District Court

In April 2014, I got a case for A.C. dismissed.  She was charged with driving while license invalid/suspended in Williamson County Court at Law # 3.  I assisted her in getting her driver’s license reinstated.  Once we showed proof to the county attorney that her license was reinstated her case was dismissed.
