Social media makes it easy to stalk and harass someone else

Social media platforms, like Twitter, Snapchat and Facebook, make it easy for you to stay in contact with the people you like and admire. These unique programs let information travel almost instantly. They also make it harder to move on from a failed relationship for some people. Seeing posts by someone you care about who doesn't feel the same way can make you feel depressed or angry. You may want to reach out to that person. Doing that is very often a mistake.

Be prepared to defend yourself if you're facing a DWI in Texas

You have always enjoyed drinking a little too much for your health, but lately, it has gotten you into trouble. You were traveling home after drinking at a bar one night and ended up with your second DUI. Just a short time later, you were caught driving with a revoked license. Now, you're facing serious penalties.

Possession charges are very serious matters in Texas

Many people think that having drugs in your possession isn't a big deal unless you are carrying a large quantity of the drug. This is absolutely false in Texas. It doesn't matter what type of drug you are said to be in possession of, you need to understand a few basic points about possession charges.

Texas enacts limited medical marijuana laws

While several other states have made drastic alterations in their marijuana laws, including decriminalizing it and even legalizing it for recreational use, Texas has started making its own small changes. Unfortunately, the medical marijuana program that Texas has enacted is so narrow that there are widespread doubts about who will actually qualify.

Common types of harassment

"Harassment" is a broad term that the criminal justice system uses to describe various behaviors. Two common types of harassment are stalking and cyberstalking. Here in Texas, the two are very different offenses. You might have also heard the term "harassment" used to describe behavior in the workplace. There are certain kinds of harassment that results in criminal charges, while other types usually fall under the jurisdiction of the civil courts.

A larceny conviction in Texas can come with a harsh punishment

The penalties associated with theft in Texas can be very severe. However, like most criminal charges, the punishment you might face in case of a conviction will directly relate to the seriousness of the offense. For example, the penalties for shoplifting a pack of gum will be extremely different than those for stealing a Ferrari.

Even a minor violation of probation could mean jail time

Facing criminal charges is frightening, especially if they are felony charges with the potential for a large jail sentence. For those accused of non-violent crimes and first time offenses, there is always potential for probation instead of jail, unless there is a mandatory minimum sentence for the crime.
