Frequently Asked Criminal Defense Questions and Answers

Gary Churak's Answer

Someone who was charged with a DWI faces a 6-month jail sentence, even for the lowest level of DWI, in addition to the thousands of dollars that a DWI conviction could cost them. It’s the person’s choice whether or not to hire an attorney, but my recommendation would be to hire an attorney.

Gary Churak's Answer

If he has complied with all his probation requirements the court may let him report by mail. This would be the only alternative and it is up to the judge. An attorney would be needed to go talk to the judge. Most experienced criminal defense lawyers like myself will offer you a free consultation

Gary Churak's Answer

The grounds for the 11.07 shall be raised on the 14th Amendment, due process, also, wrongful/illegal conviction. In researching my case, I have discovered that the State did not follow the process of certifying a juvenile according to the laws established but the State of Texas. Tx Code Annotated, Family #2, section 11.01 to 58.00, emphasis on 53.07-Service of Summons. Therefore, if the State proceeds in charging and convicting said juvenile, such a conviction is illegal since said juvenile is, as a matter of law and fact, still within juvenile jurisdiction. My wife and family have purchased and sought out my juvenile case file and upon inspection by myself and certain lawyers. Needless to say, the file falls short of meeting the guidelines laid out by the state…. If in fact the State failed to properly certify you as an adult you would have the basis of a 11:07 Writ of Habeas Corpus for wrongful conviction. I handled a case identical to your issue on an Appellate level where the trial court failed to give the properly notification on the certification hearing. The Appellate Court agreed with our position and vacated the certification and conviction. It was a sex offense. You may also have an ineffective assistance of counsel issue in your writ based upon your trial lawyer failing to pick up on the defect in notification and filing for an appeal. Matters are complicated when the juvenile court loses jurisdiction in the matter. Talk to an attorney who handles 11:07 writs. Most law firms like mine will give you a free initial consultation.

Gary Churak's Answer

Well, it’s going to be the same as if you were arrested for an alcohol DWI. If you submit to a breath or blood test and fail, your license will be suspended for 90 days administratively. If you refuse, your license will be suspended for up to 180 days administratively. If you are convicted for DWI, either alcohol or drugs, you’re looking at a potential license suspension. However, if it’s your first offense, you are able to take a class through DPS to keep your license so it will not be suspended if you’re put on probation. If you’re convicted and sent to jail, you will lose your license for up to two years.
