Will courts drop domestic violence charges if victims recant?

Houston residents have been under a great deal of stress ever since Hurricane Harvey roared ashore in Rockport nearly one month ago. The side effects of chronic, sustained stress can include angry outbursts and behavioral changes which may lead to episodes of domestic violence between spouses and partners.

False murder charges and damaged reputations

The media has long been known to highlight grisly crimes such as murder, especially when law enforcement arrests a high profile suspect. Within a matter of minutes, the world can catch a glimpse of these suspects, who are often later cleared from their charges. Many media consumers are quick to forget the individuality of these suspects, who are commonly thrown under an overwhelming spotlight for lengthy periods of time only to be acquitted. Texas law protects these individuals, who maintain innocence but are often never truly purged from the emotional burden of publicity. 

Field sobriety test basics

If you have ever wondered just what happens during a typical drunk driving arrest process in Texas, you are not alone. While many people have heard about field sobriety tests, few truly understand them. As explained by FieldSobrietyTests.org, these different tests administered at a stop location do not prove that you are actually drunk.

Clarifying Texas' implied consent law

For those who have been stopped by law enforcement officials in Houston for suspected drunk driving, their first thought may be to refuse taking any sort of sobriety testing. Most may assume that officials cannot compel one to do anything that he or she does not consent to do. Yet when it comes to drunk driving, law enforcement is offered a little leeway. States have enacted implied consent laws that basically say that by driving, one agrees to chemical testing to confirm his or her sobriety. Indeed, Texas' implied consent law can be found in Section 724.011 of the state's Transportation Code
