Frequently Asked Criminal Defense Questions and Answers

Gary Churak's Answer

The Blood test will probably read that you have THC in your system. Marijuana, which the basic formula for the drug is THC, stays in your system about 30 days. So, the chances are that it would show up in your system. Now, the question is if you smoke three days ago, why were they pulling you over for DWI at that time? There may be an issue as to probable cause for the arrest down the road the fact that you had such a small amount in your system at the time that you were driving.

Gary Churak's Answer

Under Texas Law a deferred disposition of a Class C misdemeanor, your six months stay out of trouble probation, qualifies you for an Expunction. An Expunction is a civil lawsuit filed with the District Clerk in the County where the offense occurred seeking a sealing of the criminal case. All law enforcement agencies and courts who have information regarding your case are served with notice of the Petition. It may take up tom six months to get your Order of Expunction depending on the County. Once the Order is signed by the Judge all the law enforcement agencies and courts that have information on your case are Ordered to remove that information from there records. This could take up to a year or more. Lawyers charged differently for their services. Contact some attorneys in your local area and discuss what they can do for you and what it will cost. Go with the attorney that you feel most comfortable with. Check the internet for local attorneys. Good Luck.

Gary Churak's Answer

Anytime you’re arrested, your job can find out about it. It just depends on the situation. Usually, it takes some time for criminal background checks to pick up any information on arrest. It could be as little as a week, it could be months. I had a recent situation where a client of mine lost his job because his arrest was posted on some website and his boss saw it. So, you never know. There is no guarantee that your boss isn’t going to find out that you’ve been arrested.

Gary Churak's Answer

In order to be charged with driving while intoxicated; the drugs have to be in your system. If they’re in your vehicle and you get pulled over, you could be charged with possession but then, you know, it’s a defense that the drugs do not belong to you and they may belong to a friend who had a prescription form. So, at this point, you know, if you’re looking at a possession charge, it’s a good idea to go hire yourself a drug lawyer and start getting the evidence together that shows that it was not your drugs but someone else’s who had a valid prescription form.
