What happens is that every day that goes by without hiring a lawyer is a whole day you have wasted when instead you should be actively pursuing objectives that will lead to the best result possible in your case. Don't complain later about how the system screwed you if you don't become...Read more »

The defendant will have access to all the State's evidence, including the photos, usually no later than the first setting of the case in court. This first setting usually comes months before any trial setting, so the defendant will have knowledge of and access to those photos even if he/she...Read more »
I am a victim of domestic violence. I accidentally sent in the wrong photos for evidence to the district attorney. The photos were from a whole different assault. I plan on calling DA to inform. Will I get in trouble for sending in wrong photos by accident?
You will not get in trouble for sending in the wrong evidence so long as you promptly notify the DA of your simple and wholly innocent mistake. The only way you'd ever get in trouble over this is if the DA believes you sent in the wrong evidence on purpose and are only trying to withdraw the...Read more »
Sorry, not nearly enough information to begin to try to answer your question. That said, there are some counties in Texas that use the bond system to punish accused persons, a practice that is wholly illegal. Or maybe your inmate deserves bonds a war criminal might expect.
I was wondering what the statue of limitations is for filing an indictment. Also I have been requesting an attorney, court appointed, since I was arrested , and they have refused saying that I can't get a lawyer until my case is filed. I got a call on January 30 saying I have court on the... Read more »
The filing of your case is well within the Statute of Limitations, assuming that your upcoming court setting is the result of your case being filed. What the exact Statute of Limitation is in your case cannot be determined from the information you included in your question.

He is willing to sign an affidavit stating they were his Would that clear me from the charge bc i was scared And half asleep and told them... Read more »
I'd say no, it won't clear you. You confessed in a manner which appears to be voluntary. Sounds like you just said the drugs were yours without even being asked? If that's the case and assuming the officers were in his house legally, then your confession counts. There's no...Read more »
I was harassed by a man at a restaurant and the public called police to help. As I was leaving to get away from him I was walking away on the sidewalk when a police officer came from behind me and grabbed me. I didn't know it was an officer and back kicked him. I was arrested and let go on a... Read more »
What do you mean when you say you were "let go on a misdemeanor"? If the case was filed as a Class A misdemeanor, the State Bar will be very interested whether you pleaded guilty. Saying you didn't know he was a poice officer when you back-kicked him is the same as saying you were...Read more »
I'd like to help you here but you haven't asked a question. Without any clue as to what you're trying to accomplish, any substantive attempt to give you an answer would be be more likely to confuse you than to enighten you.
You won't find a whole lot of caselaw on this...Read more »
If you will state the offense your trying to get information about, I can probably help with that question. The fact that that there is no code means just that, there is no code input into the person's information. The "xxx" in the warrant number generally means that there is no...Read more »

My ex girlfriend approached me in early December saying she is pregnant. There is a chance that it could be mine and she says it is, but I would really like to be certain before taking further actions. What steps need to be taken on my end for a paternity test? I have a feeling she will not want to... Read more »
While hiring a lawyer and having the lawyer file a Motion to Adjudicate Paternity is the surest way to go to get your answer, if it was me, I'd ask her for paternity testing of the child (in utero) and you and then if she agrees, both of you go to a reputable testing facility (one used...Read more »
It's a long story but the police haven't arrested him yet but it is coming. They have released my grandson's name but not the killers. Is there anything keeping me from putting his name out to the public?
I'm very sorry for your loss. You are free to put your grandson's name out to the public so long as there is no court order prohibiting the release of his name. The question I have is why aren't you asking the police agency this question? There are many reasons why the release of the...Read more »
the boy is my brother in law, his parent s passed away and our home burned down. he left to live with his aunt by choice, and now wants his social and birth certificate. can I give him his stuff without going through a lawyer or court? or can he use it against me in a case of any sort?
You can give him his social security information and also his birth certificate. I would give him copies, not the originals, especially if he's still a child or if he's in any way likely to lose the originals. If there's anything on the birth certificate that might be upsetting to...Read more »

If you've left your husband and there's no reasonable expectation that you will get back together, sue him for divorce. If you think your marriage might be void or...Read more »
I'm trying to get a police report of a disturbing incident told to me by my 7 year old daughter and was told by HPD that I would need to get a judge to subpoena the records because my name is not on the report. Can you help me with this process? I need these records immediately.
You don't have a right to get a copy of the offense report, assuming there is an offense report, but you do have a right to get a copy of the incident report if one was generated. Contact the public information office of the Houston Police Department. I usually just go to police headquarters...Read more »
