Can an Alleged Victim Drop Domestic Violence Charges in Texas?

Domestic Violence

In the heat of the moment, we can all say and do things that we regret. Domestic violence situations often involve these regrettable actions.

So do false domestic violence accusations.

There are a handful of reasons why an alleged victim would report domestic violence, but before they know it, they are faced with testifying in court and seeing their partner face jail time, custody loss, or other penalties.

The whole case would be dropped if the victim just took back their accusation, right?

Not so fast. Even if the alleged victim was the sole witness to the alleged domestic violence, they alone cannot drop charges. Alleged victims can, however, have a big impact on the outcome of a case.[...]

She was on supervised release after a conviction for tax fraud when she voted in the 2016 election. Since convicted felons cannot vote in Texas until they have completed the terms of the sentence, the woman was in violation, and she will serve an additional 10 months in federal prison – after five years in state prison.

These Factors Can Impact Whether or Not Texans Get a DWI

DWI

Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs takes hundreds of lives each year – and those are just the numbers for our state. In the past few years, Texas law enforcement officials have experimented with different methods for reducing the amount of fatalities on the road. Extra vigilance and more DWI arrests seem to be doing the trick – but are they at the expense of truth and justice?

Unless you have a breathalyzer or ignition interlock device in your car, you likely do not know what your blood alcohol content is at any given moment. The difference between .07 and .08 is small in numbers, but big when you consider the thousands of dollars in fines and fees [...]
