Reviewing Texas' self-defense law

Most in Waco might never dream of using violent force against another, yet there may be situations where they are compelled to do so. One's first reaction to hearing a claim of self-defense may be to be skeptical. However, enough legitimate cases of the justified use of force have occurred to merit several states to create laws addressing it (according to the National Conference of State Legislatures, Texas is among them). Such statutes typically stipulate that people have no duty to retreat from a scenario where they feel threatened, and by extension, are permitted to defend themselves and others if the situation calls for it. 

Ignition interlock device basics

Among the many challenges residents in Texas who have been convicted of driving while intoxicated offenses face, one is the potential loss of their driving privileges. Whether or not this happens or how long a driver's license suspension or revocation may last depends in part upon the details of the particular offense and situation. However, some drivers may be able to reinstate their ability to drive legally if they install and use an ignition interlock device.
