If you have been charged with a felony drug offense in Texas, you need an aggressive Houston drug attorney to defend your rights.  Most people currently imprisoned in Texas were convicted of or simply pled guilty to drug charges.  The last thing you need is a lazy lawyer who is unwilling to do everything necessary to defend you.  The 4th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution protects all from unreasonable searches and seizures, yet most criminal defense lawyers rarely file motions to suppress evidence as a routine pre-trial motion.  Why?  Because the motions require many hours of research, intense legal and factual briefing and a complex evidentiary hearing.  As a general rule, you should never give the police voluntary consent to search anything.  If you refuse consent, a warrant is usually necessary.  In the event you did consent, the fight is not automatically over.  Your attorney should explore the facts to determine if you were unreasonably stopped or detained.  If either your stop or your detention were unwarranted and prolonged, your constitutional rights were probably violated and all evidence gathered from the search could be thrown out!  Don’t waste money on lazy or stupid lawyers.  You need an aggressive, smart attorney who is not afraid to fight hard for your rights.  Call 855-350-4024 for your free consultation.

How are innocent people accused of sex crimes?

First the police are notified.  Then the child and his or her parent(s) make an initial report.  In this report, the police are looking to make sure that a crime has been committed and that they have jurisdiction over the case.  If they believe that a crime has been committed in their jurisdiction they will normally schedule an interview with the child with a forensic interviewer for Child Protective Services.  In addition, the police will normally schedule a medical examination as soon as possible to see whether there is any physical evidence of abuse.  Some Child Advocacy Centers or (CACs) have a medical clinic.  Most of the time, there will not be evidence of penetrating trauma.  But the medical examiner will testify that this does not mean abuse did not occur.  In addition, the medical records may contain statements of the child as to where they were touched.  Even though these statements are hearsay, they will come into evidence at the trial because they are part of the medical records.

Then the child will be seen by an interviewer with Child Protective Services.  Normally these interviews are videotaped.  CPS has trained forensic interviewers who normally conduct the interview.  Normally, only the child and interviewer will be present for the interview.  The interviews are supposed to be done in a non-leading way using non-suggestive techniques.  However, that rarely happens.  After this interview, the child may be sent back to an investigator with the police department.  The investigator may take another statement from the child.

After this initial investigation the police will normally take sworn statements from the “Outcry Witness.”  Article 38.072 of the Code of Criminal Procedure allows the first person (who is 18 years of age or older) the child told about the allegations to testify in court.  In addition, the police will normally take sworn statements from every person the child has discussed the allegations with.

After this part of the investigation, the police can then look for corroborative evidence.  This is any evidence they think will prove the complainant is telling the truth.  This evidence can include any of the following:  Telephone records, motel records, movies, books, magazines, letters, gift cards, lingerie, photographs, e-mails, school records of complainant showing changes in grades, and unusual behavior by the person accused.  Sometimes, the investigator may request a search warrant to search the home of the person accused.  However, an investigator may try and search the home of the person accused without a search warrant.  If someone who is in control of the home such the accuser’s wife consents to the search, the police can search the home without a warrant.

Some police agencies in Texas will even have the child try and call the person accused while they are tape recording the conversation.

It is at this point the person accused will be contacted by either law enforcement or CPS.  After the police contact the person accused, they will take the information they have and see whether or not the District Attorney’s office will accept charges.  If the district attorney is presented with more than one charge, they will normally accept the most serious and most recent charge.  If they meet with someone who is under investigation, they can take their statement without having to read them their legal warnings.  This is highly unadvisable.  When the police meet with someone accused of this crime they will try and get a confession.  If they can not get a confession, they will try and get other corroborative evidence.  They may try and tell this person that they understand it was an accident and see what they say.  In addition, the investigator will try and ask the person who is being accused why the child has made this story up.  The investigator will try and gauge the persons reactions.

If charges are accepted, the person charged will have to post a bond.  In addition, the court will normally require that as a condition of bond, the person not have any contact with the accuser and not have any contact with children under the age of 17.

If you hire Quackenbush Law Firm we will want to meet with you and go over your case.  You should never meet with an investigator without an attorney present.  In most instances it is best that you do not meet with the police.
