If someone is arrested in Plano, Texas, Frisco, Texas or McKinney, Texas for a crime, generally they must see a judge or a magistrate before a bond is set. Because of staffing issues, the judge or magistrate may not get there quickly. It can be anywhere from minutes, to hours, to days before someone sees a magistrate.

I need to make a correction to my post this morning. I inadvertently contributed a quote to the wrong Austin DWI Lawyer. I contributed a quote in an Austin American Statesman article to Austin Attorney Jamie Balagia. However, the quote was made by highly regarded Austin DWI Lawyer Jamie Spencer. Mr. Spencer has written extensively on his DWI blog and criminal law blog about a variety of subjects from the HGN Test to a famous federal prisoner’s thoughts on American Justice.

Sorry, Mr. Spencer. The mistake was unintentional. To read more posts from Austin Defense Attorney Jamie Spencer, click the links below.

“To take or not to take an alcohol test?” That is the question that every person who is suspected of drunk driving must ask. When faced with such a potentially life-altering decision, perhaps its best to get some guidance from our elected officials. According to a report in the Austin American Statesman, the rate of refusal for elected officials in Texas, when accused of drunk driving, is 100%. Among the general public, the rate of refusal is about 50%.

Why would 100% of our elected officials, who are accused of drunk driving, refuse to take an alcohol test? According to the report, Rep. Mike Krusee, R-Round Rock, stated that he refused an alcohol test because, “I’d always heard from attorneys that you should refuse.” Representative Krusee’s decision to refuse resulted in his case being dismissed.

While I would agree with Representative Krusee that most defense attorneys, including this one, advise citizens to refuse alcohol tests, the reason most attorneys give such advice is because even if you take an alcohol test and pass you will still be charged with DWI.

We are often asked about the “cost” of a DWI. There are many hidden costs to a DWI other that the potential criminal punishment. Most people don’t realize, or are not told, about these hidden costs until after it is too late. Hidden costs may range from loss of job opportunities, education opportunities, raised insurance rates, driver’s license surcharges, probation fees, etc.

In the article below by Christopher Solomon entitled “DUI: The $10,000 ride home”, some of the hidden cost of DUI/DWI are explained. If you are currently facing a DWI/DUI charge, I highly recommend you read the article. Her it is in its entirety.

DUI: The $10,000 ride home A fine is just the start of what you’ll pay for a drunken-driving conviction. Insurance-rate increases, legal bills, alcohol treatment and licensing fees can push the cost into five figures.

As many of you may have read or heard about, a Tarrant County judge was recently arrested for DWI. The arresting officer obtained a blood warrant and the judge was forced to provide a specimen of her blood. The defense successfully challenged the validity of the warrant which resulted in a ruling that the blood test result would not be allowed to be presented as evidence during the prosecution.

Apparently, this ruling did not go over well with Dallas Morning News columnist Steve Blow who wrote the following article in the Morning News:

Plenty of blame to go around in Tarrant judge’s DWI case
