Q. Parole violations due to cases dismissed and reinstated
A: You should really consider hiring a lawyer to address this issue. Parole violations can be tricky. Especially when they involve new arrests because arrests can create substantive and technical violations. Without seeing the exact parole violations being alleged it is impossible to give good advice about how to address this issue. Usually, parole violations are handled via Zoom so any lawyer in Texas can represent you on the violation, regardless of where the violation is being heard. If you choose to represent yourself in the parole violation make sure you have any documentation regarding the dismissal ready and provided to your parole officer. Good luck!
Q. Didnt know about warrant issued 6 years ago never been arrested or contacted by police what can happen?
A: Unfortunately, the statute of limitations is paused once a case is filed. However, you do have a right to a speedy trial. To avail yourself of that right you need to clear the warrant (this is something that an experienced criminal defense attorney should know how to do in the jurisdiction with the warrant). After the warrant is cleared your attorney should file a motion to dismiss for a violation of your right to a speedy trial. Now that you are aware of the warrant you need to act as quickly as possible to get this behind you. Make sure that you hire an attorney from the county where the warrant is pending. Good luck and I am happy to speak with you to discuss details that might be specific to your case. ... Read More
Q. I believe law enforcement violated my fourth amendment and I don't know who to contact?
A: These are always difficult questions but any attorney is going to need more details before answering a question like this. If your rights were violated it is possible that the evidence that was seized could be suppressed. Also, there is a small possibility if the damage to your property was extensive that you may have a civil claim. If you contact a lawyer the lawyer is going to want to know if you were arrested and why you were being subjected to search. Without knowing this it is impossible to give more information.
