First time posting here. We're a group of Texas Criminal Defense #Attorneys who have started blogging about legal news in the Lone Star State. Please check it out.

For the #criminal #attorneys: we obtained video of a Field Training Officer who didn't realize he was being recorded while training a rookie. It's a lot of fun. Definitely confirms what many of us suspected about LEOs real motives and training.If anyone wants the full video, especially #SanAntonio #lawyers, just let us know, but the story below covers some of the highlights.

This is the third major scandal Hoelscher Law Office has uncovered. The first was an incident where the Breath Test Technical Supervisor failed to realize one of her Intoxilyzers was defective and the DA failed to disclose it until compelled by our office. The second was when we spearheaded the effort to shut down Integrated Forensics Laboratory ("IFL"), which has become a statewide scandal in #Texas. The FTO in this video was considered the best #DWI cop in San Antonio.

The top #DWI cop in San Antonio has been caught by the Hoelscher Law Office training rookie officers to ignore police procedure. Officer David Luther was one of the most prolific arresting officers in Bexar County and a Field Training Officer for SAPD. The public needs to know what DWI lawyers have long known: DWI cops are not fair and cannot be trusted.

This is the third major scandal we've helped uncover. First, we caught the DA's office hiding evidence of problems in their DWI breath testing program which affected hundreds of cases. Second, we helped prove that Bexar County's DWI blood testing program was based on bad science and perjury, which has affected thousands of cases across Texas. Now, we've brought evidence that SAPD's DWI training program is deeply flawed.

If you are stopped for Driving While Intoxicated, then refuse all tests, do NOT consent to a breath or blood test, and call us immediately after you get released. Hoelscher Law Office isn't content just to fight for our clients, we fight the system itself.

In a climate of increased public concern about law enforcement misconduct, few citizens realize that even if they are victims of bad cops, they may never see justice. The problem isn't just the hurdle of overcoming the "blue line of silence" to prove police misconduct. Legally, law enforcement officers who engage in civil rights violations benefit from "qualified immunity," a legal precept which limits citizens' ability to sue law enforcement agencies, even when there is no dispute that abuse occurred. By preventing plaintiffs from recovering money from governmental entities that give bad cops the opportunity to abuse the public, government has made it nearly impossible to seek justice as a member of the public. Instead, citizens wrongfully hurt by police are forced to rely on the government to regulate itself and provide justice. That just doesn't happen very often.

The story of Alfred Aragon is one example. The officer who killed Alfred is named Michael Garza. Despite drinking on duty, being in a relationship with Alfred's ex-wife, and lying to investigators about how he came to shoot an unarmed man in his own yard, Garza has never been charged with a crime and remains a member of the San Antonio police department. That's why I'm proud to represent the Aragon family in civil court. We hope to have the opportunity for 12 citizens to review this case as our jury.

To mental health professionals, PTSD, or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder acts like the elephant in the room filled with six blind men.If you remember the story, six blind men encounter their first pachyderm and each found a different part of the animal. PTSD is like that classic folk tale with so many interpretations of what causes it. Yet like those blind men, those of us who are not mental health professionals believe we understand this disabling syndrome, based upon limited information. That’s why I want to invite my fellow attorneys and members of the public to “PTSD – the Elephant in the Courtroom,” a continuing legal education seminar set for Friday, Nov. 6 from 9 a.m. to noon at the Geekdom events center, 131 Soledad, San Antonio.

Doctor Harry Croft, a nationally renowned expert on PTSD, and Dr. Kate Glywasky, a board certified neuropsychologist, will help educate attorneys on what constitutes PTSD and how it can impact legal issues ranging from driving under the influence to divorces. Randy Parker, the Bexar County Veteran’s Treatment Court director, will also present an overview on his program that also assists selected first-time offenders in the criminal system. Cost is $30 for 3 hours of CLE.

I'm proud to announce that I have been named one of the Top 30 Criminal Defense Lawyers in San Antonio for the second year in a row. The poll of local lawyers, sponsored by Scene in SA Magazine, asks who they would hire if they or a family member needed criminal representation. I appreciate the vote of confidence from my peers, who also selected me one of the Top 30 DWI (Driving While Intoxicated) Defense Lawyers in San Antonio earlier this year. My favorite awards this year, however, are the two national awards based on client satisfaction. I've been too busy to keep up with Facebook, but after successfully attacking a statewide forensics lab, giving our DA a hard time, and winning all but one trial so far this year, I'm very pleased to see my colleagues appreciate the effort. Thanks, y'all!

Unused blood samples tying up DUI cases in Bexar County.

“This is the big question around the courthouse: ‘When do we get the blood back?’” [defense attorney Joe] Hoelscher said. “It’s breaking down our system.”
