    Class B Misdemeanor - Obstruction of a Highway

    Is this on my record forever?

    Will it effect my insurance rates?

    If it will effect my insurance rates, how long will it effect them?

    What about an Administrative Drivers License Suspension as a result of refusing a breath test, does that stay on there forever?



    Thanks

    Yes I know its better than the DWI, that's why I hired the best attorney in town. The case is over, and the DWI was dropped and the record expunged.

    Now does anyone know the answer to my questions

    I got a copy of the expunction in the mail that tells me that the Drivers License suspension record and the obstruction charge do not qualify for expunction.

    The arrest was made 28 months ago and the plea was agreed to 12 months ago. I have not spoke to my attorney in a year.

    This just leads to the question of why no arrests are made during Texas Relays for Obstruction of a Highway.

    You look good on the video, you refuse to blow, and you have no record.
    eharmony?

    Do not worry about it. Congrats, on getting the charge reduced.

    FYI, most insurance companies could care less about this charge. Insurance companies basically look at a dwi like a traffic ticket, and you did not even get that.

    So how did they end up charging you with that? Did you just turn the car off in the middle lane?

  20. #20
    i'm pretty sure the conviction will be on your record forever. And records of class B's and above are available to the public through the DPS criminal records search (as opposed to class C's). So if an employer ever asks about criminal history you should probably disclose it bc they will find it.

    Many attorneys will plea bargain DUIs to a highway obstruction charge, I believe.

    $#@!, hf is better at answering questions, only the dumbshits moved over here....like myself.

    You should have gotten a deferred adjudication as the punishment for your Obstruction charge. then, You could have gotten an Order of Non-Disclosure, which seals the record, as opposed to an expunction (which destroys it). The expunction was done on the DWI arrest record you had, since that charge was dismissed.

    If you did not take a deferred adj. for your Obstruction charge, then it is a regular old conviction on your record, which will be there for eternity. how that affects you depends on your situation.

    * The fact that you plead to this charge, without knowing what the thing actually meant, speaks volumes about supposed "best lawyers EVAR!) and their shortcomings in dealing with clients.

    ** If you did not get a deferred adjudication on the obstruction charge, you got royally $#@!ed. the ONLY ADVANTAGE to taking the obstruction as a CONVICTION like that is the avoidance of the $3k in DPS surcharges.

    So, it IS "better than a DWI", but it can be even "more better than a DWI". See, the thing with DWI's is that you can do a probation and it will still give you a conviction. There is non deferred adjudication for DWI's, ever. Thus, the benefit to getting the charge dismissed and refiled as Obstruction is that you CAN get a deferred for that charge, do the probation, and never have a conviction of any kind on your record (plus the expunction of the DWI arrest).

    * Just to be thorough, the reason you can't have your ALR suspension expunged is because it is not a criminal offense/conviction. It is simply a note on your driving record.

    It only took 25 responses but thanks for the thorough reply scottsins.

    I'm assuming that I cannot go back and get the deferred adjudication on the Obstruction now that it's all said and done.

    My Attorney is regularly discussed on this board and around Austin as one of the best in town. Why he missed this, I am not sure. Either way, I was happy with what came out. (as happy as one can be for spending $10k to defend against a DWI when I was not drunk). Obviously the deferred adjudication would have been icing on the cake.

    A call to him to ask WTF? would still be a good idea. If we need to have Big Pussy or Paulie drive let me know. :)

    it is too late to get a deferred adjudication. not to be a $#@!, but I am going down to austin to accept a deferred adjudication on an obstruction plea bargain from a DWI for a client tomorrow morning.

    the plus is that you saved the DWI surcharges by not getting a DWi conviction.

  30. #30
    and if the attorney is who I am assuming it is, I have gotten PM's from several people over the years about his handling of cases that give me pause.

    He is VERY good at trying DWi's. that reputation has gotten him to a point where he can charge a huge fee and churn out cases pretty quick, with no one questioning the results. i still have to earn my fee. I am nowhere near as experienced as him, but again, you bring me a good DWI case, and I will get it taken care of. Good tape? No breath test? I have good "luck' with those.

    maybe if I jacked my fee up 300%, people would just assume I was kicking ass and handling $#@! the best i could all the time.
