Pharmacist charged with delivery of a controlled substance

Posted on April 27th, 2011 No Comments

Last week, a Houston pharmacist was arrested and charged with delivery of a controlled substance.  The pharmacist was employed at the Richmond Professional Pharmacy on the 1600 block of Main Street.

An undercover police officer made the discovery that the licensed and registered pharmacist was illegally distributing drugs.  The officer claims to have been able to get several Xanax and LorTab pills from the pharmacist in unmarked bottles delivered in a cardboard box.

Since his arrest, the pharmacist surrendered DEA and DPS controlled substance registration numbers used at the pharmacy and another pharmacy he owns in Rosenberg.  In addition, he has surrendered his personal Texas State Board of Pharmacy license number.  He was released from holding on a $20,000 bond.

6-year old brings gun to school, accidentally discharged

Posted on April 20th, 2011 No Comments

Yesterday, an accidental shooting occurred at Ross Elementary School in the Houston Independent School District.  The accident occurred after a 6-year old boy brought a loaded handgun to the school.  The weapon was discharged when it fell from the boy’s pocket in the school cafeteria.

A bullet grazed two other students, 5 and 6-years old, and the boy who brought the gun.  The students suffered leg wounds but were listed in stable condition at the hospital later that evening.

According to state laws, having a gun within a child’s reach is illegal.  The young boy will most likely not face criminal charges, but his parents or guardians will be investigated.

Judge convicts man of DWI, insists he wasn’t driving

Posted on April 14th, 2011 No Comments

A Houston man was recently convicted of driving while intoxicated despite repeated claims that he was not at the wheel of the car.  The man’s daughter testified to the court that she was driving on the evening that he was arrested.

Police pulled over the white Chevy Astro van being driven by the daughter after receiving reports that the vehicle had been swerving in the northbound lanes of U.S. 59, just south of Sugarland.  The officer noticed that the man, who was sitting in the passenger seat, had red, glassy eyes, and asked to see his driver’s license.

Despite insisting that he had not been driving that evening, the officer arrested him and charged him with drunk driving.  In court, he continued to try to tell officers that his daughter had been driving all evening, however the judge at his trial still convicted him of a Class B misdemeanor DWI.

If you have been charged with driving while intoxicated, having experienced legal representation at your side will be key in the outcome of your case.  Contact the Houston DWI attorneys of Johnson, Johnson & Baer, P.C. at 713-523-0404 to set up an appointment to meet with us today.
