Am I Now Eligible for Expunction?

expunge.jpegIn the social media era, pretty much everything is permanent public record. Even if you delete that questionable Tweet, someone probably made a screenshot of it. So, it's rather ironic that today's Texas expungement and sealing laws are broader than ever.

How Accurate Are Breathalyzer Tests?

breath results.jpegToday's Breathalyzer is based on the Drunk-O-Meter, which appeared in the 1930s. So, the Breathalyzer is a very well-established piece of technology. However, the Breathalyzer has also not changed very much since those early models. Thus, the flaws inherent in those early models still remain today.

Should I File a Motion for Early Discharge?

early term.jpegIf the football team wins on Sunday, the players often get an extra day off. The same thing is true regarding probation. If you do well, you are entitled to additional time off.

Since the Supreme Court ruled that blood tests require search warrants, that will probably remain true for quite some time. Occasionally, Texas law enforcement agencies hold "no-refusal weekends." If drivers refuse Breathalyzer tests, officers will obtain search warrants for blood tests. So, you can refuse a chemical test, and that refusal is effective until they strap you onto a gurney and stick a needle in your arm.

arrested.jpegCounting the so-so 2018 remake, there have now been six Death Wish films. The first one appeared in 1974, when the vigilante crimefighter genre (Death Wish, Walking Tall, Dirty Harry, etc.) was very popular. Angst over a string of 1960s Supreme Court decisions gave rise to these films. Back then, the cases were extremely controversial. Today, they are a fundamental part of criminal law in Tarrant and Parker County.
