Houston, TX asked in Criminal Law and Federal Crimes for Texas

Q: I have a pending charge which is a third degree felony charge injury to a child physical abuse which never happened.

I feel that my children where interrogated by the teacher and by the police, they was put up to say those things. And the police has taken my kids into emergency custody and then they proceeded with a search warrant to search my home while prior to me going to the precinct to speak to them I was arrested at the time. They told me what I was being arrested for and gave me a bond. Prior to posting and releasing I was put on a 24hr hold due to cps. So I get my papers stating that I can not resign at my residence for approx. 91 days and can't come 1000 feet of my home even though the kids are not in my care. I have been sleeping in my car due to this. And I was released with only partially of my belongings. And my purse was not with my property, I was told to come back and show ID to get my purse.

A: These are serious allegations and, as bad as it has been so far, it can still get worse. Much worse. You should hire the best criminal defense attorney available that practices in the county where you are facing charges.

A: Being arrested and charged with something you didn't do is a terrible experience. Unfortunately, you're going to have to spend a lot of resources in both time and money to fight this charge. Good luck.
