Police in Texas recently arrested two men they believe responsible for a robbery in the Houston area. The charges against them may be quite serious. As such, each of the accused has the right to employ a criminal defense attorney who will fight to protect their best interests.
According to a local news report, on Wednesday, Jan. 18, three men were spotted in an SUV that had been stolen earlier that same day. Officers attempted a traffic stop, but the driver allegedly failed to comply. This led to a car chase and crash in the area of W. Airport and Chimney Rock. After crashing the SUV, the suspects tried to flee on foot. Officers apprehended two of the men; the third individual remains at large.
Details regarding the accused individuals' names and ages have not been released to the public. Authorities have also not specified what charges are expected in this case. At this time, it is unclear if the accused individuals are still in police custody or if they have been released on bail/bond.
Stealing a car and running from police can garner some serious charges in the state of Texas. Those accused of participating in this event -- if convicted -- could face some significant penalties including jail time and fines, among others. With the assistance of an experienced criminal defense attorney each of the accused can pursue legal courses that will best protect their rights and interests. While fighting the accusations in this case will not prove easy, it does not mean the situation is hopeless.
