Legal Answers
44 Questions Answered
Q. I was arrested in Texas for a 3rd degree felony. The DA has decided not to prosecute me. How fast can I expunge?
A: It depends on which section of the code you are relying on to expunge it. If under CCP 55.01(a)(2)(A)(i)(c), 3 years. If under CCP 55.01(a)(2)(A)(i)(d), immediate. If under 55.01(a)(2)(B) you have to wait for the expiration of the period of limitations. Each one has different requirements, and the last one is more thorough than the first.

Q. If a first time offender has 3 bonds set at $100,000 $200,000 and $50,000. Can a bond "reduction" set all to $75,000?
A: A judge may reduce the bond if her attorney files a motion to reduce bond. It's up to the judge. If she has been in jail over a year, it might be a good time for a judge to consider a bond reduction, especially if the trial delay was the result of the state.
Q. what can happen to a 13 for having sexual conduct with a 7 year old
A: The 13 year old could be charged with sexual assault of a child. You should retain a lawyer as soon as possible to ensure that he asserts his legal right to remain silent.
