Possession of a Controlled Substance with Intent to Deliver

In Gilmore v. State, a case out of the Court of Appeals in Texarkana, there was an anonymous tip that the defendant was traveling towards the county in a white truck, and that was found not to be sufficient to create reasonable suspicion because the route was a well-travelled corridor.  In addition, "the corroborative tip merely predicted the defendant's current course of travel rather than any future itinerary"...The travel was down a well-travelled corridor, which was the usual route between Crockett and Trinity, and the tip merely predicted the defendant's current course of travel.

Texas Criminal History Records and Employment

Your past can haunt you.  Especially if you have a previous false accusation that you were acquitted of or was dismissed and the statute of limitations have run or if you just did something stupid and you were given a second chance.   It can loom around forever if you do not make the effort to get an expunction order or order on a petition for non-disclosure.


The elements of forgery are that the state shows that the defendant: 1: with the intent to defraud or harm another; 2: passed; 3: a writing; 4: that purported to be the act of another; and 5: that the other person did not authorize the act.
