Humble, TX asked in Criminal Law and White Collar Crime for Texas

Q: I'm dealing with corruption with a d.a. and judge refuse to file white collar crimes against a friend. What can I do?

I have forensic evidence proving everything I got and they refuse to accept it saying that there are too many high up people involved and they can't be convicted...I also have been threatened to drop the charges or I would regret it.

A: The Texas Rangers investigate corruption by public officials. If you've run afoul of the Good 'Ol Boy Network you might just call to see if the Rangers are interested in the case.

A: You can't make a DA file a case. So there isn't much you can do. They have discretion to pursue, or not pursue a case.
