Criminal Defense

Law enforcement recently arrested a suspect in connection with a robbery at a Wells Fargo bank. The man was taken into custody in Lewisville and then booked into Denton County Jail. The man now faces robbery charges and his bail is set at $75,000. The robbery occurred when the suspect entered the bank and passed a note to a teller demanding money. The man also implied that he had a weapon, but never displayed a firearm. Corinth law enforcement has stated that the man is a suspect in at least two other bank robberies in the Dallas area.

Robbery encompasses using violence with the specific purpose to steal the property of another person. The state of Texas prosecutes robbery as a particularly serious offense. Texas classifies robbery as a second degree felony that can result in up to 20 years in prison and fines of up to $10,000. Aggravated robbery that includes serious bodily injury to the victim, using or even displaying a deadly weapon during the offense, or injuring or threatening an elderly or disabled person can result in even more serious fines. If you are charged with robbery, obtain the assistance of a seasoned criminal defense attorney who can review your case and discuss the various available options.

How to Respond to a Robbery Charge

A woman recently threatened to kill her sister and swore at a 911 dispatcher on Wednesday before law enforcement arrested the woman on an assault charge. Law enforcement initially responded to a disturbance at a home in the Denton area. While en route to the scene, dispatchers were informed about the woman’s threatening behavior. The woman was reported to yell loudly enough to cause lights in the house next door as well as across the street to come one. The woman was then booked into the Denton City Jail. This case raises an important lesson that is often overlooked by people faced with assault charges, which is that threatening behavior alone even without the presence of injuries or physical actions can constitute a charge of assault. If you or a loved one faces assault charges, you need to understand what your charges mean and obtain the assistance of strong legal representation.

What Constitutes Assault in Texas

A large number of people think that assault involves hitting or harming someone in any way. In reality, a person need not actually make contact with another individual to be convicted of assault. As a result, threats alone can constitute assault.

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.
