Legal Answers
58 Questions Answered

Q. My mother is a check fraud victim, what next?
A: Go to the bank and complete a fraud affidavit. The bank should begin refunding stolen funds. Change your credit cards, bank cards, etc. The bank can handle that off the top. Consequences? There should be none after it is established the bank recognizes the fraud. Hope this has been helpful, and good luck.
Q. In texas can my sister throw away my belongings if I can't pick it up
A: You're in a tough spot, but your sister is well within her rights to evict you and your property. Find a place to land. You have no legal recourse.
Q. Would breaking into a mobile home be burglary of a vehicle
A: Habitation is defined as structure or vehicle adapted for overnight accommodation. The mobile home is a habitation.Burglary, however, requires that the entry was made with intent to commit theft or another felony. You may be more apt explain the entry as not having either intent. That makes the entry trespass to a habitation, a misdemeanor. Give it another look, and good luck to you.
Q. I was subpoenaed in Brownwood Texas by the state under my name says c/o two names which are task force whats this mean
A: You cannot control what the task force cops tell the ADA who issued the subpoena. The Court will look to the named cops to assure your attendance. Just go tell the truth, or refuse to answer, and everything will be okay. Insist on representation before you testify. Good luck.
Q. Im trying to get the date of my last conviction
A: Call the Clerk where the conviction occurred.
Q. Can you sit out a warrant in Texas if it in Oklahoma for no insurance
A: You have to go to Oklahoma to "sit out" the warrant. If you do not have the money to pay the Supreme Court in 1971 decided a case saying the system cannot jail indigent people because they are too poor to pay as an alternative to payment. Contact the court. Make arrangements for a payment plan, a deferred adjudication disposition, etc. You do not have to go to jail to remove the warrant. Just contact the court.Find out what can be worked out short of you going to jail in Texas, or Oklahoma, for an offense that carries no jail time if you were found guilty of committing it. Good luck.
Q. Does a DUI, due to being underage and having alcohol, count towards the 3 DWI rule to make it a felony in Texas?
A: You are a "repeat" DWI offender based on your record. Not a felony DWI offender. However, if you are thinking about the possibility of it happening again, then your conduct has not been adjusted to assure it does not happen again. So, it WILL happen again ... eventually. Here's a clue. You live in a community that is heavily opposed to drunk drivers. Do not drive, even if you have just had a few. You are too young to drink if you cannot plan how you are going to get home. Just don't drive. Or better yet, go to a few AA classes and find out where you are headed. Find out if you have an alcohol problem. You are mighty young to be dealing with these issues. You probably need more help than a ride home when you have had a few. Good luck to you.
Q. If a felon is in his brothers car and a handgun is found but claimed by brother, does felon get charged ,what happens
A: The ex-con may be able to beat the rap with brother claiming the firearm, but he will not beat the ride. Cops arrest convicts near guns ... end of story. Just because the brother claims the firearm is not the end all. The system does not have to believe brother ... and brothers lie to help brothers. Prove ownership in non-ex-con brother, and ex-con brother has a chance of walking out of jail one day. Good luck to you both.
Q. How much is oklahoma jail a day?
A: Call the jail in the county the case is pending. The sheriff determines how much jail credit is given for a day in jail in that county.
