When you are arraigned on the charges, you should tell the judge that you plead not guilty and want an attorney but cannot afford one. Ask the court to appoint an attorney to assist in the defense of the criminal charges.

Another expert asked me to step in and assist. I understand your argument on the harvesting or hauling of agricultural products but the atty for the DOT identified the problem. You weren't raising the products and were just out "scouting". The transportation code doesn't allow for "scouting". Still, the way you were treated was ridiculous and the statute is definitely vague at best.

My suggestion is to contact an attorney who does civil rights law as well as contacting an organization that does advocacy for individuals with disabilities. This has to be one of the more offensive actions by the police I've seen.

Your argument as to the transportation code is a good one, you may also want to use the argument that teh vehicle is equivalent to a motorized wheelchair which we see all the time on neighborhood streets. By preventing you from using the vehicle it is a violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act, particularly when you needed to scout the neighborhood out for access in your vehicle, etc.

Hope this was some help.

Thank you for allowing me to assist you. I believe I have answered all of the questions you asked so I would request that you please click the ACCEPT button so I receive credit for my work and leave feedback if you have a chance. Please consider clicking "BONUS" as a nice way of saying "thanks" for a job well done, although this is neither required nor expected. Please remember that we can only base our answers on the information you provide and sometimes a misunderstanding as to what you are looking for or already know occurs so feel free to ask additional questions. Please be aware that my answer is not legal advice, it is merely information and no attorney client relationship has been formed. You should always contact a local attorney for legal advice.

Several customers have asked how they direct a question to me in particular. If you specifically want me to provide information for you just put “FOR TEXAS ATTY” in the subject line and I will pick up the next time I am online.
