February 2018

Two men in the Denton area face felony drug delivery charges after law enforcement found 73 grams of methamphetamines in one man’s sweatshirt. The men were subsequently taken to Denton City Jail and charged with the manufacture and delivery of a controlled substance between four grams and 200 grams. Denton law enforcement learned that the man had planned to deliver methamphetamines to a person who lived in the 500 block of Londonderry Lane, and then saw the man arrived at the location. During a search, law enforcement found two bags with about 70 grams of methamphetamine inside one of the men’s sweatshirt. If a person in Texas provides illegal drugs to others, that person can be charged with drug delivery. Because these charges are very serious and can result in a person facing serious charges, it is important to obtain a seasoned attorney if you or are loved one is charged with this offense.

Understanding What Constitutes Delivery of Drugs

Delivery of drugs charges can be based on either actual or constructive delivery.

Actual delivery refers to situation in which one person transfers possession of an illegal drug to another person. For example, evidence demonstrating that a person performed a direct exchange with another constitutes actual activity.

The owner of the recently closed Rubber Gloves Rehearsal Studios was arrested earlier in the month when he punched a former worker at the company in the eye. According to the arrest affidavit, law enforcement officers were called to the scene of Andy’s Bar where the incident occurred. The worker who was struck told law enforcement that he got into an argument with the business’s owner after the owner accused the man of blowing smoke in his face. The business owner is reported to have driven away from the scene prior to the officers arriving. The business owner later admitted to punching the worker in the face because he had blown cigarette smoke in his face. The man was arrested and taken to the Denton City Jail where he was charged with assault and driving while intoxicated. The man was also placed on a $7,500 bail. In the state of Texas, assault charges can result in large fees and lengthy time in jail. If you have been accused of assault, one of the best ways to respond is to immediately obtain the assistance of an experienced criminal defense attorney.

What Constitutes Assault

In the state of Texas, assault occurs when a person recklessly or intentionally causes physical harm to another, intentionally threatens physical harm, or intentionally uses provocative or offensive physical contact against another person.

The Different Types of Assault Charges in Texas

A woman recently escaped a kidnapping attempt by a man who invited her to have sexual intercourse with him outside of a fast-food restaurant. At the time that the incident occurred, the woman was walking in front of Grandy’s on East McKinney Street. Later, as the woman was walking in the 200 block of Mockingbird Lane, the same man stopped his truck, confronted the woman, grabbed her by the shirt, and tried to force her into his truck. The woman was able to avoid being kidnapped and escaped to a nearby fire station for help. No arrests in the case have been made and the investigation is still under way.

What Constitutes Kidnapping

Section 20.03 of the Texas Penal Code defines kidnapping as intentionally or knowingly abducting another person. It is not a requirement for kidnapping to occur that a person uses weapons or violence. To abduct a person, someone must restrain the individual with intent to prevent his or her freedom of movement by holding the victim in a place where he or she is not likely to be found or by using the threat of or actual deadly force.

Kidnapping Versus Aggravated Kidnapping

A man was taken to the Denton County Jail recently after his girlfriend accused him of assaulting her near a storage facility located on Smith Street in Denton. The enforcement occurred after law enforcement was called to a domestic disturbance at an Affordable Self Storage location. The man was arrested on a charge of family violence assault. A family violence assault (also known as a domestic violence charge) is not something to be taken lightly in the state of Texas. You can end up being denied job opportunities, prohibited from possessing a firearm or hunting, and banned from seeing your own children without supervision. As a result, if you are charged with a family violence assault charge, obtain the assistance of a knowledgeable criminal defense attorney. It is also often a wise idea to follow some important pieces of advice, which will be reviewed in this article.

Follow No Contact Orders

It is absolutely essential that no matter what, you follow no contact orders. Even if you want to make an effort to fix your relationship with your ex, it is more important to follow the no contact order and avoid any additional penalties. Only if you are permitted to, should you attempt to former partner or the victim and apologize or show remorse.
