I received a ticket for "running a red" in Houston,TX and have a court date coming up very soon. I have an out of state license and was wondering if I am still eligible for defensive driving? Can I request a trial by judge at the initial arraignment - if I can and do, will I then have to show up at court at a later date or will the trial commence immediately?

If you request a trial by jury/judge, you will have to reset the court date and return (usually 6 months later). Deferred Adjudication or Defensive Dricing can be requested on the spot. I doubt they would give you Deferred since you're out of state, but Defensive Driving should be no problem.
