Texas Loves Convictions
In Texas, Dist. Atty.’s pride themselves on how many people they can send to jail, regardless of whether the evidence is compelling enough to put reasonable doubt on it’s back. It’s probably best to have a lawyer that is a former district attorney/assistant Dist. Atty. working out of the Harris County prosecutor’s office. If you do hire an attorney to represent you, it’s best that they have some experience as a prosecutor so that they may have an advantage during their efforts to successfully represent you as your criminal defense attorney.
Be Honest With Your Attorney
One of the most important things that you can do to help in your defense is to be honest with your attorney.
Being as honest as you can with your Houston attorney is a surefire way to give them all the tools that they need to competently represent your position as they argue on your behalf in the court of law. If your attorney is made to look like a fool in front of jurors during your criminal trial then it could result in credibility questions about your lawyer, which may result in you being jailed for a crime that you may or may not have committed.
Take care to seek experienced legal representation if you’re facing criminal charges in the Houston area, your life may depend on it.
