Violent Crimes

When a person is accused of any kind of violent offense in Texas, the possible consequences of a conviction can be extremely far-reaching. In addition to possible incarceration and fines, a criminal record that contains any crime of violence can make it difficult to obtain employment, housing, or professional licenses.

Not all alleged violent offenses are necessarily cases of alleged offenders attacking alleged victims. Oftentimes, people accused of these crimes may have a very different version of events than the one reported to police.
