Preliminary alcohol screening versus Breathalyzer

Like all motorists in Texas and beyond, you're obligated to adhere to all traffic regulations and state laws that impact your privilege of operating a motor vehicle. For instance, if you drive around without a license plate on your car, it's like an invitation to police officers to pull you over. That's because you understand from the get go that your vehicle must have visible tag numbers showing while you drive.

Should you just let the police into your home?

If you are like many other Texans, you may not think twice about letting police officers into your home when they come knocking without you having called them for an emergency first. However, as you wonder why they are even at your door, you may want to take a moment to consider whether you should let them in at all.

Understanding criminal charges involving forgery

Facing criminal charges is frightening, and it can be a threat to the personal well-being of Texas readers for years to come. If you are dealing with accusations of a white-collar crime, such as forgery, you would be wise not to underestimate the serious nature of your situation. Forgery charges can result in consequences that can change the direction of your life, and it is beneficial to build a strong criminal defense to protect your future.

Think twice before refusing a Breathalyzer test in Texas

You never know when a police officer is going to pull you over in a traffic stop. Well, if you are flying down a highway at speeds that far exceed the posted limits in the area, chances are you might wind up seeing some flashing red and blue lights in your rear view mirror at some point. However, there may also be a time when you have no clue why a Texas police officer has signaled you to pull off the road.

A criminal conviction may narrow your job search

Because your future plans may involve tracking down the ideal job, your recent arrest rightly causes you some concern. For many, the job interview is the most stressful part of starting on the path to a new career. However, for those with a criminal record, the background check can be a stumbling block.

How to lose your license in 40 days or less

The privilege of driving in Texas comes with many obligations. You likely took a driving test in Travis County to prove your knowledge of the laws of the road. Obeying those laws is crucial to the safety of you and other drivers. If you break the law, you run the risk of losing your privilege to drive.

What is drug court, and how does it work?

When faced with a drug charge, not knowing what is going to happen to you can be pretty frightening. For minor drug crimes, common penalties that accompany conviction include jail time and fines. However, the state of Texas understands that sometimes a different approach to dealing with the problem is necessary. This is where drug court comes into play.

Law and disorder when crimes lab procedures are unreliable

When people watch crime shows on TV, they often see pristine forensics labs where confident scientists reach conclusions almost effortlessly based on only a modicum of evidence. Often, those fictional scientists appear in court to testify at the trial of the accused, and when they explain the findings of the suspect's DNA, the jurors nod in agreement, their verdict confirmed.

Drug Sentencing Gets Stricter Under Trump

The Trump administration's Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, is directing prosecutors to return to strict sentencing for small crimes. It's a reversal of the previous administration's course--in 2013, Eric Holder reduced the use of mandatory minimums. Now, Sessions is urging prosecutors to charge people with, and obtain convictions for, the most serious crime provable within any specific case.
