How the Fifth Amendment protects those accused of crimes

Facing criminal charges is a scary thing. Depending on the seriousness of the alleged crime, you could risk anything from jail time to the death penalty in Texas. Knowing your rights before you get into legal trouble is the best option, but many people aren't fully aware of their rights as American citizens. That can lead to mistakes both when dealing with law enforcement and when strategizing for your criminal defense.

What are the penalties for terrorism?

Texas and federal legislators, courts and enforcement professionals tend to take potential terrorism very seriously. If you were to face these types of charges, it would not be surprising for the prosecution's evidence to result from the work of joint task forces involving local law enforcement and federal agencies, such as the FBI.

Racially charged threats lead to misdemeanor assault charges

Contrary to popular belief, assault charges stem not from physical violence but from the threat of violence. This is as true in Texas as it is in North Carolina, where a 51-year-old white woman who threatened to pull a concealed weapon on two African-American sisters is now facing misdemeanor charges for simple assault.
