Resisting Arrest in Texas: What Does It Mean?

Resisting Arrest

Being put under arrest is unpleasant, yes, but it is common knowledge that resisting can leave you open to further charges – namely “resisting arrest.” The key phrase here is “further charges.” If you are already being arrested for something – whether or not you believe you are guilty – the last thing you want to do is give law enforcement reasons to tack on more charges and penalties.

What if you’re being wrongly arrested, though? Aren’t there certain regulations the police must follow in order to make an arrest? Shouldn’t you make it known if you don’t think you are being arrested legitimately? You can’t simply be arrested for resisting arrest… can you?

What Texans Need to Know about Injury to a Child Charges

Injury to a Child

Injury to a child in this state is taken seriously – Texas law is direct and highly punitive.

Take a Conroe man convicted in a severe child abuse trial by jury on two counts of injury to a child earlier this year. The offenses were against two toddlers, who sustained multiple injuries including severe head trauma, fractures, lacerations, and burns, among others.

Prosecution submitted evidence of the man’s text messages directing the children’s mother to lie to authorities, and brought to light the perpetrator’s tendency toward domestic violence, citing “previous abuse of two other children of similar age in a similar way.”

As punishment for his actions, the judge stacked two life terms, and the offender will not begin [...]
