Criminal Defense

A roofer in North Texas faces felony theft charges because law enforcement alleges that the man stole tens of thousands of dollars from homeowners. The roofer in question was arrested by Corinth Police in June on charges of theft of property. Initial claims about the roofer’s conduct, however, began in February when homeowners began to contact Consumer Justice about the roof. There were also six lawsuits initiated against the roofer in 2016. One woman reports paying the roofer’s company $4,000 in 2016 to fix the woman’s home. The woman reports that the roofer stopped contacting the woman and disappeared. The roofer’s legal counsel has responded to these claims that the roofer failed to perform paid for services that customers were asking for repairs that were not covered by the roofer’s insurance. The roofer was most recently released from the Denton County jail on a $5,000 bond. Law enforcement is advising individuals in Corinth or Shady Shores who hired the roofer to contact the authorities.

Understanding the Elements of a Felony Theft Charge

Texas places several types of restrictions on sex offenders including prohibition on the types of websites they can access. The strength of these laws, however, has come under question after the United States Supreme Court ruled that similar laws in North Carolina violate the First Amendment. It is important for sex offenders to both understand these new laws as well as the restrictions that the state of Texas currently places on sex offenders.

The Supreme Court on North Carolina v. Packingham

The case of North Carolina v. Packingham involved a North Carolina law that prevented sex offenders from using social networking sites where children might be members. The state argued that websites should be restricted for sexual offenders because many children use these sites and are at risk of being harmed while online. Despite this argument, however, the Supreme Court of the United States found that this law restricts the First Amendment rights of individuals.

Texas Restrictions on Sex Offender

A couple was recently placed in jail after getting into a physical altercation at their apartment building. Law enforcement was notified about the incident after neighbors noticed an argument between a man and woman. The man told law enforcement that the woman had bitten him and revealed bite marks. The woman, however, refused to speak with law enforcement. Eventually, both parties grew uncooperative with law enforcement. The man was placed in the back of a police vehicle and arrested under the charge of criminal mischief. The woman, who was determined to have five traffic-related warrants, was arrested and charged with causing bodily injury.

This situation highlights some of the errors that individuals should avoid making when police respond to a domestic violence case. It is a wise idea for all individuals to understand how to respond to these cases to avoid making a bad situation even worse.
