Texas Drunk Driving Penalties 13th Strictest in the Nation

Drunk Driving | DUI

As a Texas resident, you should be aware that the Lone Star State has some of the harshest drunk driving penalties in the nation, ranking 13th overall.

This information comes from a new report by WalletHub, which finds that, while Texas ranks behind other conservative states such as Arizona, Oklahoma, and Kansas, our drunk driving penalties are still quite severe.

This means that you should exercise an abundance of caution when drinking, and make arrangements beforehand when you’re headed out for a night of carousing with friends.

However, sometimes things happen despite your best efforts. A DWI conviction can be life-changing, with severe penalties, long probationary periods and a criminal record that can affect employment and housing applications. If [...]

What You Can Learn from Ezekiel Elliott’s Domestic Violence “Defense”

Domestic Violence

For many Texans, football is life. If you’re a fan of football in our state, there’s a good chance you’re also a fan of America’s team – the Dallas Cowboys.

Criminal Defense | Robbery

Recently in Irving, Texas, a man allegedly entered a check cashing establishment in an attempted robbery. Instead of simply robbing the place, the man allegedly took a female employee hostage and held her at gunpoint. Dramatic video shows the police in a standoff with the suspect who appears to be holding a woman with his arm wrapped around her neck. The video, captured by a man who used his cell phone to film the incident, shows the suspect turn to his left. When he turns, he keeps the hostage in front of him. Turning was the fatal mistake. An officer discharged his duty weapon in the use of deadly force immediately when the hostage was not in the line of [...]

Beware of the Private Citizen: Vigilantes & Citizens’ Arrest

Citizens Arrest | Criminal Defense

Private citizens can act as police officers when you least expect it. Texas’s law allows private citizens to help the police capture a person. Seems illogical, but it’s all legal. Therefore, you must beware of the vigilante; the person who is out for justice and will find it at any cost. This vigilante can arrest you as long as he plays by the same rules by which the police must play. If they do not, what can happen? Fort Worth criminal defense attorney Brandon Fulgham knows that when ordinary citizens stick their nose where it does not belong, good things can happen for his clients.

If police violate a person’s constitutional rights, then the evidence obtained in violation of those [...]
