New rules to determine handling of some OSHA cases

Texas business owners who face criminal charges for violations of OSHA regulations or other federal workplace safety laws should know that in December 2015, the U.S. Department of Justice stated its intention to change the way certain crimes would be prosecuted. According to news sources, committing the crimes in question could result in some employers being indicted for felony level offenses. If convicted, the accused may be subjected to penalties that include stiff fines and jail sentences of between five and 20 years.

Supreme Court to hear breath test cases

The Texas implied consent law requires drivers to submit to a toxicology test to determine if they were operating a motor vehicle while impaired only after they have been charged with a crime. However, the laws in some other states give police officers the authority to demand a breath test based purely on their suspicion that a motorist is illegally impaired. These laws are often seen as an important part of a state's efforts to combat drunk driving, but questions have persisted about their constitutionality.

Sources say Venezuelan officials will face drug charges

Texas residents might have heard about federal drug investigations involving high-level officials in Venezuela. On Dec. 15, a source said that the head of the country's national guard will be charged. Another general in the national guard, who has also held a position in the country's anti-drug office, will be charged as well.

Understanding what forgery is

Forgery in the state of Texas falls under the category of theft. It is also a form of fraud. Someone who commits forgery with the intent to deceive could be charged with fraud or theft, but the intent to deceive is an important component of the charge in most jurisdictions.
