  • Computer Crimes

    Alternatively referred to as cyber crime, e-crime, electronic crime, or hi-tech crime, computer crime is an act commonly performed by a knowledgeable computer user, sometimes referred to as a hacker that illegally browses or steals a company’s or individual’s private information. In some cases, this individual or group of individuals may be malicious and destroy or otherwise corrupt the computer or data files.

  • Bail and bond proceedings

    Bail is an amount of money that a criminal defendant may be ordered to pay before being released from custody pending trial. Its purpose is to ensure a defendant’s return at subsequent trial proceedings. Bail is typically determined during a defendant’s first appearance in court. A judge or other court officer sets the amount and conditions of bail.

  • Domestic violence

    State Rep. Jason Villalba joint authored House Bill 21 with Rep. Trey Martinez Fischer. Once enacted, people who are convicted three times or more of domestic violence will be required to register as a repeat offender. The domestic violence registry will be available free online and will include the names, birth dates and recent photographs of the offenders.

  • Sex offenses

    A class of sexual conduct prohibited by the law.

    Since the 1970s this area of the law has undergone significant changes and reforms. Although the commission of sex offenses is not new, public awareness and concern regarding sex offenses have grown, resulting in the implementation of new rules of evidence and procedure, new police methods and techniques, and new approaches to the investigation and prosecution of sex offenses.

     

  • Shoplifting

    “Shoplifting” generally refers to the theft of merchandise from a store or place of business. Shoplifting is a type of larceny, which simply means taking the property of someone else without their permission, and with the intent to permanently deprive the owner of the property taken.

  • Embezzlement and Employee Theft

    Any person who embezzles, steals, or unlawfully and willfully abstracts or converts to his own use or to the use of another, any of the moneys, funds, securities, premiums, credits, property, or other assets of any employee welfare benefit plan or employee pension benefit plan, or of any fund connected therewith, shall be fined under this title, or imprisoned not more than five years, or both.

  • Theft, grand larceny, and burglary

    We will start with theft and larceny. These two words are synonymous and they refer to the simple taking of anything of value with an intent to permanently deprive the owner, that is an intent to keep whatever you’ve stolen. There are several degrees of theft and larceny.

  • Traffic violations

    Traffic violations are the most common types of offense that people make. They are typically divided into two types: major and minor. Both types have consequences, depending on the severity of the violation. The consequences are more severe for major offenses. You can be arrested and imprisoned if you are found guilty.

  • Personal Injury

    If you are injured in a car accident in Texas, or if you hurt someone else or their property, you may soon find yourself in the market for a Personal Injury Attorney.

  • Assaults / Homicides

    Simple assault in Texas consists of: intentionally, knowingly or recklessly causing bodily injury to another person; intentionally or knowingly threatening another person with imminent bodily injury, or intentionally or knowingly causing physical contact with another that the offender knows or reasonably should know the victim will find provocative or offensive. (Tex. Penal Code Ann. §22.01.)

  • Controlled Substances

    All states regulate the possession of controlled dangerous substances (CDS), though each differs in its exact definition of CDS and the penalties for illegal possession. Texas classifies not only well-known drugs like marijuana, heroin, and cocaine as CDS, but also the compounds used to manufacture them.

  • Marijuana Crime

    Despite the fact that marijuana’s effects are less harmful than those of most other drugs, including alcohol and tobacco, it is the most common drug that people are arrested for possessing. U.S. marijuana policy is unique among American criminal laws in being enforced so widely and harshly, yet deemed unnecessary by such a substantial portion of the population.

  • Probation Revocation

    Defendants caught (either by police or probation officers) violating a condition of probation are subject to having their probation revoked (taken away) and all or part of the original suspended jail or prison sentence reimposed. Because one typical condition of probation is to obey all laws, a probationer who is rearrested on even a minor charge may be subject to penalties for both the current arrest and the probation violation.

  • License Suspension

    You can get a suspended license for reasons including: Accumulating too many driving record points. Getting multiple traffic violations or speeding tickets. Getting a DUI/DWI. Failing to appear in court or pay fees. Failing to pay child support.
