Legal Answers
Q. I've been charged with a crime and the lawyer wants to talk to me should I speak with them with her without my lawyer
A: The simplest answer is, "absolutely not"! It would help to know more about your case. Where is it, what is the charge, and when did the offense allegedly occur? I might be able to offer a little more advice with the additional information, but it's never a good idea to meet with law enforcement without counsel by your side.
Q. I've been wrongfully acussed and charged on a felony in 2016 and in 2022 was arrested on a failure to appear on this
A: The first question I have is, has the warrant for your failure to appear been resolved? Secondly, did the DA seek a second indictment for bail jumping?

Assuming your warrant has been resolved on the initial case, and assuming there is not an additional indictment pending for bail jumping, you should be back to square one on the original 2016 felony indictment. You need to get your case placed back on the court's docket, and file the appropriate motions requesting the discovery for which you are entitled.

If no plea bargain can be reached, I would next suggest that you request either a jury trial, or bench trial. I don't know enough about the allegations to suggest any further action. You need to discuss with a competent criminal defense attorney who can assist in answering specific questions, and if necessary, represent you in the matter. ... Read More
Q. How is evidence introduced at a criminal trial and at the same time protecting a client's rights?
A: All evidence in a criminal trial is either admitted, or excluded, pursuant to The Texas Rules of Evidence, The Texas Penal Code, and The Texas Rules of Criminal Procedure. It's the obligation of the court, as gatekeeper, to determine the admissibility, or inadmissibility, of all evidence which is offered in trial. The protection of a client's rights generally lands squarely on the shoulders of his/her attorney.
