My boyfriend and I have a lot of disagreements. One day I left him at the Palm and long story short had a big fight he took my car and I let him I said just take the car and get out of my few weeks went by and he didn't get my car back and I got mad then I gave up and I started sending the title over I messed up the title I went back and forth between seeing you could keep the car and wanting it back at some point I gave you too peer pressure for lack of better term and made an attempt to report the car stolen the police showed up and did act strangely because inside of the previous week there had been particularly heated argument and I fell and hurt myself as I was trying to stalk around and run off when I said that I had been hard they behaved aggressively when they came to take the report of a stolen car after speaking with me they were practically laughing at me and definitely rolling their eyes they told me that basically there was nothing I could do and if I wanted to force the issue I would need to hire a lawyer and have a judge overturn the title that had already been signed over to him regardless that he had not signed it yet I don't recall them writing anything down they did not ask any extensive questions as though they were actively pursuing the issue when they left they we're shaking their heads my my boyfriend found this out today it happened a couple weeks ago or so between then and now we have successfully made the car legally his the title and registration are both in his name he's panicking because he has prior arrests he says he one more offense and he will be doing a life sentence regardless of the offense he's beside himself believes that there has been a police report made and charges pressed I have assured him this is not the case How can I find evidence of this to reassure him also a few days after attempting to report the car stolen again due to peer pressure I filed a restraining order I did not call to find out when or--if court date had been set or the order had even been granted I still have not called it's been a couple weeks if the order was granted but I never called to get a court date does the court date stand and I understand if I do not show up to the court date it will be dismissed but that he is also required to make an appearance if I do not show up does it excuse him from being required to show up as well or is he still required to show up and is he at risk for getting a warrant for not appearing at court date even though it is dismissed by my lack of appearance please help me ease his mind he honestly does not deserve any of this I am over reactionary from events in my past and in all likelihood should probably be on some kind of medication to balance my state of mind I'm desperate two right what I realize now is a terrible wrong please help me help him he has a heart condition and may not even live much longer for all we know and I'm terrified that I have put in motion something I can't stop not only legally but for his health I'm afraid he's going to die on me from the stress I've been putting him through please help me put his mind at ease

Person not indited in 90 days. Can parole hold be lifted?

My husband was arrested on May 17th for a DWI at the Cooke County jail in Texas. He is currently in jail still,, with a parole hold, but has not been indited yet. Its been almost 90 days. If they don't indite him by the 90 days, can that parole hold be lifted? Can my husband get out on a PR bond?He has a court appointed lawyer. She says she has nothing to do with parole, and that since it's a felony DWI, he will get 25 to life. I don't think that sounds right, and he has cell mates getting released off of their parole holds.
