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.
