DWI elevated to felony with child in vehicle

Posted on July 29th, 2011 No Comments

Montgomery County officials recently arrested a mother driving with her 1-month old baby for drunk driving.

According to the Montgomery County Assistant District Attorney, “What would ordinarily be a misdemeanor crime is automatically elevated to a serious felony crime simply because a child was in the car.”

Police reports indicate that an officer found the mother sitting in her car at a traffic light on The Woodlands Parkway.  The traffic light was reported to have changed several times, but the woman’s vehicle never moved.

The mother was reportedly asked to get out of the car but could barely stand up.  Furthermore, the child was said to have not been properly restrained in the back seat.

New law gives wrongfully convicted man given $1.4 million

Posted on July 20th, 2011 No Comments

Last month, Governor Perry signed a new law that allows a man who was wrongfully convicted on six counts of murder and spent 18 years in jail to receive $1.4 million.

The 45-year old man was a suspect in the 1992 murder of a family of 2 women and 4 children.  Another suspect informed police that had worked with the other man in the crime.

However, the man maintained that he was innocent and that he was at his house in Brenham with a family member when the crime occurred.  In 2000, the other suspect admitted that the 45-year old man was not involved in the crime.

The man was released from Burleson County Jail in October after his attorney filed a motion to have the charges dismissed.

DNA leads to suspect in Harris County rape case

Posted on July 13th, 2011 No Comments

Harris County deputies say that DNA has led them to a suspect in the rape of a 14-year old girl that occurred 3 years ago at Cypress Springs High.  The girl told police that two men raped her behind the school.

Authorities reported that the DNA matched a DNA sample from an 18-year old man serving time in jail in another county on a burglary conviction.  With the DNA match, police will transfer the man to the Harris County Jail where he will await trial for a charge of sexual assault.

Before the DNA match, police had no suspects in the rape case.  The teen’s mother says she is certain of her son’s innocence.  She says the young man expressed interest in going to college to study business or law.

If you have been charged with rape or another type of sexual assault, you will need experienced legal representation to defend you.  Contact the Houston rape defense lawyers of Johnson, Johnson & Baer, P.C. at 713-523-0404 to learn more about your rights.
