Today, I was able to get another case thrown out by a grand jury.  The client was charged with assault on a family member and was only charged because be had more injures than his wife who was the aggressor and because the wife called the police first.

For the second time in less than a week we were able convince a Harris County Grand Jury located in Houston, TX to refuse to indict a client who was charged with deadly conduct.  The client shot at a burglar that was in the process of breaking into his car.  He missed the burglar and accidentally hit a car that was driving through the parking lot.  The client called 911 and the police came out, accused him of being a drug dealer, arrested him, charged him with a 3rd degree felony offense of Deadly Conduct by shooting at a motor vehicle that was occupied, and didn't even bother to investigate the burglary.  It's a sad day when you get charged for lawfully protecting your property. #notguilty   #nobill   #violentcrimeslawyerTX

I secured a No-bill from a Harris County grand jury today for a client charged with Sexual Assault of a Child. The client was falsely accused by the family of a teenage neighbor. There was no evidence to support the charge. False allegations of sexual assault can ruin someone's life, which is why it is important to hire an experienced sexual assault defense attorney immediately upon being accused. Often times, an attorney can investigate the case and work with the district attorney to present the defense side of a story to a grand jury prior to being charged. In this case, the client was already charged, but we were still able to clear their name.

We secured a No-Bill from a Harris County grand jury for a client charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance - PCP in the 174th District Court.  The client gave a ride to a person he thought was a friend who ended up stashing a bottle of PCP in the clients' car.  He was facing 2 - 20 years in prison if convicted, but instead, he will walk away a free man with no criminal record.  #Nobill   #notguilty    #pcp   #druglawyer

Trial Wrap-up for the Week of August 26th.  This week in Harris County, Dustan Neyland picked a jury on a case of driving while intoxicated under the influence of drugs.  The client was fully cooperative with the police, was very sleepy, feeling ill, and was NOT intoxicated.  The state ended up dismissing the case during trial.  When a case is dismissed after a jury is picked and sworn, the case can never be tried again under the doctrine of "double jeopardy".  In this case, we prevailed for the client and didn't even have to wait for a verdict.

If you or a loved one are charged with a DWI in Houston or anywhere else in the State of Texas, it is imperative that you hire a qualified and knowledgeable  DWI lawyer to fight your case.

Trial Wrap-up for the Week of August 19th - This week we went head to head with the State of Texas defending a young lady who was wrongfully accused of assault with a beer bottle.  The client wanted to prove that she was innocent of the charges and hired Dustan Neyland to try her case.  The client had originally been charged with a felony case of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.  The previous attorney did no investigation on the case and ended up setting it for trial.  The client decided to fire the other attorney and hired Dustan.  After Dustan was hired and conducted a thorough investigation by attempting to obtain evidence and interviewing all the witnesses, the state dismissed the felony charge and re-filed it as a misdemeanor. 3 weeks later the case was tried to a jury and we received a verdict of "Not Guilty".  The client was wrongfully accused and justice prevailed! #wrongfullyaccused‪   #notguilty

Got a no-bill yesterday for a client charged with possession of methamphetamine and possession of cocaine . The driver threw drugs where my client was sitting when the cops pulled them over. The client was truly in the wrong place at the wrong time. Be careful who you associate with. ‪#‎wrongfullyaccused‬ ‪#‎notguilty

Great trial results on a theft case in the Harris County criminal courts today. One of the main elements in a theft case in Texas is that the prosecution must allege and prove the value of the item. If the prosecution doesn't prove that the value of the alleged item that was stolen is within the statutory range of the offense alleged, then they will fail to meet their burden of proof and will not be able to convict the accused with the offense as charged.

If you have been accused of a theft case in Houston or anywhere else in the great State of Texas, it is important to hire a criminal defense lawyer that understands the charge and understands what it takes to defend the case. Call me at 281-312-0155 to schedule a free consultation.

Just because a police officer pulls you over does not mean that you are breaking the law.  Last week, I won a motion to suppress on a marijuana case because the State failed to prove that the officer had a legal reason to stop the client on an alleged traffic violation.  Because the stop was deemed to be illegal, the marijuana seized as a result of the stop cannot be used as evidence against the client.  In the end, the case was dismissed and the client was able to avoid a drug conviction.
