Avoiding Crime & Punishment

August 23, 2016
Avoiding Crime & Punishment

The best way for people to avoid the chance of being charged with a criminal offense is to avoid any contact with the criminal element. If you’re ever involved with a criminal offense, contact a seasoned and experienced criminal law attorney as soon as possible.

The criminal element, in the context being given, can be bars, saloons, rodeo events, music festivals, county fairs, and the whole nine. Even sporting events pose a chance for criminal acts, and the often ensuing prosecution from the state. Just imagine having a minor disagreement with someone in a public place only to have the issue escalate into a combat situation. A Houston police officer may witness this event, or be alerted of it, and then you’re yourself under arrest for an avoidable event, because of America.

The Criminal Nature of American Society

As Americans, we have to come to grips with the pervasiveness of substance abuse in the mainland culture, and in our general society. Although the federal government does introduce dangerous substances into the community from time to time, they’ll also put you in jail for it, and pretend it ain’t their fault.

This includes alcohol being unlawfully present in a vehicle, marijuana possession, possession of weaponry, or even having secondhand knowledge of a federal criminal conspiracy.

That’s right.

In America, yes, these United States of America, you can be jailed for simply hearing about a federal criminal conspiracy, or in other words, for minding your own business. That’s a hell of a freedom if you ask me.

Then, on the other hand, criminals like Hillary Clinton get a pass from the criminal justice system on the basis of political favoritism. Which is fine, especially if the offender knows no addition criminal charges for corruption will persist. As a criminal society based on crime, it’s no wonder why the United States of America has willingly relinquished it’s perceived moral high-ground in exchange for the benefits of corruption, namely, money, power, more money, and more power.

Texas Loves Convictions

In Texas, Dist. Atty.’s pride themselves on how many people they can send to jail, regardless of whether the evidence is compelling enough to put reasonable doubt on it’s back. It’s probably best to have a lawyer that is a former district attorney/assistant Dist. Atty. working out of the Harris County prosecutor’s office. If you do hire an attorney to represent you, it’s best that they have some experience as a prosecutor so that they may have an advantage during their efforts to successfully represent you as your criminal defense attorney.

Be Honest With Your Attorney

One of the most important things that you can do to help in your defense is to be honest with your attorney.

Being as honest as you can with your Houston attorney is a surefire way to give them all the tools that they need to competently represent your position as they argue on your behalf in the court of law. If your attorney is made to look like a fool in front of jurors during your criminal trial then it could result in credibility questions about your lawyer, which may result in you being jailed for a crime that you may or may not have committed.

Take care to seek experienced legal representation if you’re facing criminal charges in the Houston area, your life may depend on it.

Party Season: Driving Back From Galveston, TX

Galveston, Texas is a beautiful historic island town located in Greater Houston with a population of around 50,000 people and its one of the places that many people from the area visit when they want to party and have fun in the sun.

However, it should be understood that the deputies of the Galveston County Sheriff’s Department are always on the looking out for people who may be driving drunk and violating Texas’ DWI laws while, at the same time, putting law abiding beach-goers and fellow motorists at risk.

Galveston, TX: Party Central

Its quite understandable how a person, or a group of friends, can end up on the island intoxicated. In reality, the whole purpose of visiting Galveston was to party anyway right? There’s nothing wrong (legally) with drinking and partying, but things can change if you get behind the wheel of a vehicle and attempt to drive home from Galveston while under the influence of alcohol. People die. DWI arrests are made.

Any lawyer that fights DWI charges in Galveston County will tell you that people make the mistake of attempting to drive back from the island while under the influence of alcohol all the time, and some of the cases they are asked to fight in court are 2nd and 3rd DUI offenses making the criminal penalties even more stringent on the defendant if they are found guilty in the court of law.

The Best Tip To Avoid DWI Arrests

Sometimes inviting a friend with you who doesn’t drink alcoholic beverages is the best decision you and your friends can make if you intend to go long distances from your home(s) with the intention of consuming alcohol while out.

This way, you aren’t dealing with a “drinker” who is being asked not to drink, but rather a person who doesn’t drink in the first place which will add to the sense of comfort for the person designated to drive. I mean, you don’t want someone who is compelled to drink as your designated driver do you?

Be careful and don’t drink and drive when visiting Galveston, TX.
