Why hire a private criminal defense attorney?

Much like cancer, nearly everyone can name at least one addict they know or are related to. Understand that there is no judgment here; just help. No matter what the circumstances were or what your previous criminal record is, you are going to need a defense attorney. To take that a step further you are going to need a good defense attorney. Let's examine some reasons to hire an experienced defense attorney rather than going with a public defender or a lawyer with little criminal case background.

MMA promoter charged in drug trafficking scheme

An owner of South Texas Fighting Championships was handed drug charges in March. The mixed martial arts promoter was one of fifteen defendants accused of taking part in a drug trafficking scheme that involved several law enforcement officers. The alleged scheme had been under investigation by Homeland Security since 2013.

The true scarlet letter of a criminal conviction

We would all like to think society forgives and forgets easily when a person has committed a crime and paid their dues. However, this does not seem to be the case. Even for nonviolent crimes, the social stigma is very real and long-lasting. According to a Justice Department Survey in 2012, state records across the country contain a total of 100 million criminal records. That is a huge chunk of our population that has been charged with a crime. But even with this vast number of people, they are still faced with ongoing consequences.

Driver impairment tests for marijuana may be flawed

As legalization of marijuana for recreational or medical use spreads to an increasing number of states, Texas authorities could find themselves faced with the potential need to evaluate individuals from those states for marijuana impairment at times. However, testing methods in some of the states with legalized marijuana use are viewed as questionable by AAA. Although blood alcohol testing is an effective indicator of impairment for those who are stopped for drinking and driving, testing the blood for THC may not give an accurate reading of the level of impairment experienced by a driver.

Former NFL player pleads guilty to DUI
