Are you familiar with your Fourth Amendment rights?

Imagine driving to Katy from downtown Houston, on your way home from a long day at the office. As you exit off of I-10, you suddenly see red and blue lights flashing in your rearview mirror. You find a safe place to pull over and wait patiently for the police officer to approach the driver's side window and briefly wonder why the traffic stop is even occurring.

You have the right to defend yourself or others from attack

Security is far from a given these days. People can find themselves in danger while shopping, at a movie theater or even during a walk outside. You could be the unintentional victim of a would-be mugger. Perhaps you witness someone mercilessly beating someone else. Maybe you run into someone you have had a bad interaction with in the past, and things turn violent.

When more than one case comes out of a criminal matter

Many people assume that the double jeopardy protections in the United States Constitution mean that you can only face one legal case for a specific incident. This is a misconception that some people realize isn't factual too late. It is possible to have to answer to two types of cases that both stem from one event.

You can fight back against assualt charges

Like other criminal acts, a charge for assault in Texas can come with severe consequences. If you commited the alleged act, you could face criminal penalties, including jail time. In addition, the alleged victim might also try to sue you in civil court in order to obtain compensation from you for any injuries that resulted from the act.

All about drug trafficking for those facing charges

Drug trafficking charges tend to be automatic if authorities find you in possession of a large quantity of controlled substances. Those substances could be pharmaceuticals or other types of drugs like marijuana, heroin, cocaine, molly, hash, LSD, ecstasy or something else.

The differences between theft, robbery and burglary

If you recently received property crime charges, it is important to understand exactly which charges you face so that you can more effectively build a strong defense. While many of the terms for various property crimes are used interchangeably in conversation by the general public, these charges all revolve around specific definitions that may entail a legal slap on the wrist or serious legal consequences including jail time.
