That is not the question I paid for. The question I paid for is about my daughter. Are you kidding me.
Customer reply replied 9 months ago
I asked what to do? My daughter was arrested in Texas on a warrent charge out of NM. During the towing if the car they found drugs. Sense she was the driver she gets those charges. Now she has been in jail sense 9/27 and has not even been arraigned. Is that legal?

I'm sorry to hear this happened.

No, this is not legal.

Your daughter should be arraigned within 24-48 hours.

Since she has not been, a Writ of Habeas Corpus needs to be filed with the court -- demanding that she be arraigned, given a bond, told her charges, or else released.

You should look into retaining a lawyer locally where your daughter is being held, and getting the Habeas Corpus filed right away.

I hope that helps!

Please let me know if you have any other questions. Also, please take a moment to rate me using the stars at the top of the page, as it's the only way experts are compensated for our time on the site. I do not receive a salary here at JustAnswer, and am only compensated for my time after receiving a rating of 3 stars or more (5 stars are always appreciated). The question won't close after rating, so you can still ask follow-up questions after. Thanks, ***** ***** it!

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
