With hurricane Harvey comes theft and property crimes

Whenever there is a major disaster, looting tends to be a big issue. With Houston and other areas along the Gulf Coast being destroyed by Hurricane Harvey over the last week, Texas police have had to deal with some reports of theft and property crimes. Those accused of these crimes could face some significant penalties.

Texas criminal defense: Woman facing several criminal charges

A woman in Texas is facing numerous criminal charges following a car crash that occurred back in July. According to reports, her 7-year-old son was killed in the wreck.

Texas incident results in drunk driving claims against woman

Late at night, it may be difficult for drivers to discern what is happening when there are multiple police cars and ambulances in an area with lights flashing -- especially if it involves the closure of a ramp.

Unfortunately, police in Houston, Texas claim a woman who drove past two police cars used as barricades, forcing two officers to jump over a barrier, was drunk driving.

The serious consequences of violating probation

If you are on probation, you may consider yourself fortunate. However, while the court did not sentence you to jail, technically, you are still under the eye and hand of the justice system. Depending on the circumstances of your arrest and conviction, a judge may have granted you probation up to three years. In some situations, probation may last longer, but no matter its length, you likely felt relieved to have avoided a jail sentence.

Man indicted by federal grand jury for drug crimes

Specifically, the man has been accused of possessing over 110 grams of the methamphetamine, along with other drugs and guns at a home.
