Finding Comfort in a Defense Lawyer

May 11, 2014 0 Comments

An encounter with the criminal justice system in Texas can have some seriously life changing circumstances. This reigns even more true if you are actually found guilty in the court of law for a criminal offense and have to serve jail time as a result of conviction in the court of law. Even if you are innocent and found not guilty during the criminal trial, the process of dealing with the demands of the criminal justice system still takes a toll on you. Lets face it, being accused of being a crime is a stressful situation.

Even when you have the representation of a top criminal defense lawyer in Houston, there is still a chance that you can be found guilty of a criminal charge regardless of how good of a defense you bring to the jury. When the case falls into the hands of the jury, the only solace one could possibly afford is provided by your confidence and good record of the attorney handling the case.

In the event that you are arrested by a Texas law enforcement agency, like the Harris County Sheriff’s Department of the Houston Police Department, there is a chance that you can prevent the suspension of your drivers license.

There is a 15 day rule in Texas

If you arrested for a DWI in Texas your drivers license could end up being suspended automatically unless you have a smart lawyer that will request a special hearing on your behalf. A special hearing can prevent your drivers license from being suspended in some circumstances.

The 15 Day Rule applies to you if:

  • Your blood alcohol level (BAC) was over the legal limit
  • You refused to take any of the three sobriety tests
  • You tried to take the tests, but the officer stated that you refused
  • Your were under 21 when arrested and BAC shows any amount of alcohol
  • You had a commercial license when arrested and your BAC was .04% or higher

If you have been arrested by the police for a DWI criminal offense in the state of Texas, immediately contact an experienced Houston DWI attorney who knows how to use the law for your advantage, and can represent you in the court of law for your charges.
