There are a number of different individual criminal offenses that fall under the category of “drug crimes.” These cases require particular attention to a review of the client's constitutional rights in order to obtain a dismissal or acquittal.
Assault and especially Family Assault is one of the crimes most vigorously prosecuted by the State of Texas. You should never take assault charges lightly.

Chapter 31 of the Texas Penal Code covers the regulations and punishments for crimes against property. Theft is a broad criminal charge that can range from misdemeanor to felony depending on the amount of property stolen.
Charges placed on a person by the government are difficult to combat, but not impossible. Crimes such as fraud, internet crimes and some sex crimes can be classified as federal offenses.
These crimes are defined by their violent nature. This can be murder, rape, aggravated assault and kidnapping. Violent crimes carry with them more serious penalties, especially if a deadly weapon is involved.
Those who are charged with crimes may get parole or supervised release as part of their sentence. There are strict punishments in place for those who violate the terms of their release. Anyone who is accused of a violation has the right to a hearing.
Having your criminal record expunged means that it has been wiped clean of all your criminal charges. However, there are certain requirements that must be met in order to qualify.
