Factors that may influence false confessions

"Making a Murderer" is a crime documentary series that has captivated viewers in Texas and around the country. The film features a confession by 16-year-old Brendan Dassey which many people believe was fabricated. According to one expert, the confession portion of the case bears similarity to another case that occurred in Minnesota. Unlike Brendan Dassey, the suspect in the latter case was acquitted.

Using alcohol consumption or drug use as a criminal defense

Texas residents may wonder why individuals accused of crimes committed while under the influence rarely claim diminished capacity as a defense. While drinking or taking drugs may sometimes make it difficult for individuals to resist their impulses or tell right from wrong, temporary insanity caused by drugs or alcohol will only be recognized by the law in a handful of very specific circumstances.

Man taken into custody on drug charges in Texas

Authorities say that they found methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia inside of a home belonging to a 47-year-old man on Jan. 3 in the Houston County city of Crockett, . Police first made contact with the man during a traffic stop and executed a search warrant after finding probable cause to suspect that he had large quantities of drugs inside his residence.

Male victims of domestic violence in Texas

While there is no question that domestic violence against women is a major problem, it appears that men are also dealing with abuse in significant, if lower, numbers. However, not as much attention is paid to this issue because men are less likely to report being physically or mentally abused. This is likely in part due to the fact that men are embarrassed and society tends to see men in these situations as being weak.
