Clients previously convicted of some DWI offenses will now be able, for the first time to get the relief of having their records sealed (non-disclosed) from public view. Previously, as there was no provision permitting deferred adjudication probation, a DWI conviction was a public record available for all to see. Effective September 1, 2017 a new law goes into effect in Texas giving relief to many of these clients who have had this albatross around there necks, sometmes for years. A successful non-disclosure filing will permit the client to deny they were convicted and the records of the arrest, charges and conviction will be sealed and thus non-existent for all but law enforcement and a few governmental agencies. The basic eligibility requirements are: 1. Must be a class B misdemeanor DWI (alcohol level below 0.15 offense of conviction). 2. Must have no other convictions or deferred probations (except class C traffic violations). 3. Must have been placed on probation and successfully completed probation. (jail sentence or labor detail in lieu of jail sentence will not qualify). 4. There must have been no automobile accident involving another person (includes passenger). There are 2 waiting periods to file for this record sealing. If the probation required an Interlock for at least 6 months, you can file 2 years following successful competion of the probation. If the probation did not require an Interlock, then you can file 5 years following successful completion of probation. For those currently charged with DWI that are considering a plea agreement, they should be mindful that a labor detail (available in Tarrant County and a limited number of counties) will prohibit this relief. It becomes more important to avoid a conviction for class A (BAC over 0.15) DWI. It may be advisable for those that want to have the conviction sealed as soon as possible to agree to an Interlock for at least 6 months. Defense attorneys need to be aware of these changes when advising their clients so that this opportunity is not missed. At Ball & Hase, PC, Wes & Don are available to consult with those who have DWI convictions in their pasts to determine eligibility. For those that are eligible, we can file the petition in court to obtain this relief. If this may apply to you or somene you know call 817-860-5000. www.ballhase.com

http://www.star-telegram.com/news/local/community/fort-worth/article156699504.html Wes Ball secured dismissal of a Capital Murder case. Texas law does not permit conviction of an accused, based on the uncorroborated testimony of a criminal codefendant. This legal protection has been long-standing in Texas law and prevents wrongful convictions without credible evidence.
Attorney: An Everman woman told police she had nothing to do with it. Her co-defendant told police she had nothing to do with it. Then she got indicted.

In the good to know department, I had a Judge today agree to let a client who hasn't exactly been a model citizen (new arrest & charge while on probation, not showing up for court etc.) avoid a stay in jail. The normal course of business in these circumstances is you go to the cross-bar hotel for a stint. Not so fast... There is a provision (somewhat obscure) in the Texas Code of Criminal Procedure, Article 42.035 which permits "home confinement" in lieu of actual jail service. In other words you can serve your jail sentence at your own home, sleep in your own bed and have meals from your own kitchen. Of course this requires a compelling argument which is where the lawyer comes in, but it can be done. Today, despite many infractions, 30 days "home confinement" and cases are over with. The prosecutor and Judge advised that they had never done this before. wb

In the can't make this stuff up department, I have a kid (17) who was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Some guy in a car is creating a disturbance in front of his house. Client walks out his door and demands to know what the f**k is going on. They exchange F bombs and the guy in the car gets out of his car and tell my client he is going to whip his a**. Client advises the guy not to step on his lawn saying, "I have a gun." Car guy says you don't have a gun, FU FU FU... Car guy steps on client's lawn. Car guy gets shot 6 times. (more shots missed and hit the guy's car). Car guy gets back in his car and drives himself to the emergency room without calling police. ER calls police who arrive and ask, what's going on. Car guy says, "It's all my fault. The kid told me he would shoot me if I stepped in his yard and I didn't believe him. I stepped in his yard and he shot me. I don't want to prosecute." Of course, in their infinite wisdom, the police get a warrant for client who turns self in and posts bail. I checked to see who car guy is. Car guy is back in jail on a repeat felony drug charge. I suggest to the District Attorney that this case merits a No Bill recommendation to the Grand Jury. Grand Jury no bills the case (charges rejected) and the Second Amendment prevails.
