Know your Rights
The Roberts Law Offices want you to understand your rights. If you have been pulled over for drunk driving in Texas, do not take a breathalizer test, answer questions about what you have had to drink, or take a sobriety test. Do get in touch with the Roberts Law Office as quickly as possible. If you are charged with a drunk driving related offense, Ms. Roberts will help you obtain an occupational driver’s license so you can continue to work.
The ODL is strictly for getting to and from the place of employment. Depending on the individual’s criminal record, this license may be granted with the installation of an ignition interlock. This device requires the driver to take a breathalizer test before the car will start. Whether the charge is a DUI/DWI, domestic violence or drug-related offense, contact us to uphold your rights and fight for you.
Probation revocations happen for a number of reasons, and there is a lot of confusion among probationers about the law surrounding this issue. If probation is revoked due to missing a report date or meeting, failing a drug test or other reasons, you will have to face a judge alone. A probationer has no right to jury trial.
Breaking probation can result in receiving continued probation or a maximum sentence based on the original charges. The state does not need to prove their case again, either. They only have to provide reasonable evidence the probationer committed a violation. If you are facing a revocation, contact your attorney at the Roberts Law Offices immediately.
A Fresh Start
Ms. Roberts also represents clients who are looking to have their records sealed from public scrutiny. If you have completed a probationary period and have been given deferred adjudication, an order of non-disclosure may be granted. Law enforcement will then be prevented from making these records open to the public and you can deny the event in its entirety.
The non-disclosure agreement prevents the record from being made public, but does not expunge it. An expunction erases all trace of the arrest, prosecution and evidence. As such, they are more difficult to qualify for. Records can be expunged if you have never gone to court after being charged, were pardoned, the charges were dropped or dismissed or you were found not guilty.
Ms. Roberts represents clients on all types of expunction, non-disclosure and other criminal defense cases and is certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. If you are facing a misdemeanor or felony charge, contact us immediately.
