What rights do I have during a criminal arrest?
First off, you have the right to remain silent: Use this! You may feel the urge to explain your side to the police, but anything you say can easily be twisted and used against you. You also should be read your list of rights, which includes the right to remain silent as well as the right to an attorney. Before you speak with anyone else about your case, you have the right to speak with a lawyer. Asserting this right from the start is crucial to safeguarding your future.
Can I refuse a chemical DWI test in Texas?
If you have a Texas driver’s license, then you have given your “implied consent” to submit to any blood, breath, or urine test. This means that if an officer suspects you of driving while intoxicated and requests that you submit to a chemical test, you must do so. Otherwise you will automatically forfeit your driver’s licensed if you do not promptly and timely request a hearing on this issue.
What is the difference between a misdemeanor and a felony in Texas?
A misdemeanor conviction in Texas can mean up to one year in local or county jail, while in some cases there might also be a fine of up to $4,000. Felony crimes are much more serious can be punished by a year to life in state prison, while capital felonies are punishable by death. Criminal fines for a felony typically are no more than $10,000.
What if I'm innocent? Do I still need a defense lawyer?
Unfortunately, innocence is not its own automatic defense. A Texas court or jury must be convinced of your guilt beyond a reasonable doubt, and while the burden of proof is on the State of Texas, you will still need to build compelling evidence and arguments, as well as navigate the criminal justice system and all its procedures to do so. With your reputation and freedom on the line, you can’t afford to take risks: Failure will be far costlier than hiring a skilled defense attorney.
