What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? TX
I'm new here and just have a few ?s. I'll try and make it as brief as possible. I have a twin sister who got caught back in 2010 with a loratab pill and they charged her with possession of a controlled substance weighing less than 1 gram. That was not the only thing she got aressted for. In 2007 or 2008(I can't remember) she was a hard core addict. She went to a hospital in her town and told them she was me and gave them my ss# to seek treatment. She told them she had a toothache in order to get a prescription for pain meds. I found this out because her roommate called and told me. I called the police and made a report. I never heard back from them. I was not aware the case would go to the DA. The only thing I wanted was the bill to go under her name, not mine. So, when she got arrested, she had two felony charges and was put in jail. She was released after a week or so. Well she never showed up for her court date and got a few warrants. She got rearrested on apr. 10 and is still in jail. How much jail time is she looking at for each offense? I think she has a bond fortified(something like that). Her bond is set at 3000 for each. On the local jail roster, it has something that says AWTR by the bond amt. Does this mean awaiting trial? She is having a fit about me not called the DA and asking them to drop the fraud charge. I don't think that is possible from what I've read. Will she get a long jail sentence for each charge or just probation. I told her she should have showed up for her court date!
