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. 

Is expungement an option available to you?

Having an arrest on your record can haunt you long after the criminal matter you stand accused of in Waco is resolved. Such a record can bar you from obtaining certain types of housing, and even potentially interfere with you getting a job. Thus, it certainly is in your best interest to try and have any such action removed from public records. However, not all criminal offenses are eligible for expungement. Knowing which ones are might save you a good amount of both mental and emotional effort. 

What you should know about plea negotiations

Plea bargaining offers people charged with a crime the opportunity to avoid harsh penalties such as lengthy prison terms, so it is no surprise that many Texas residents choose not to fight criminal charges and go for a plea deal instead. It is important, however, to be aware of what plea bargaining entails. You should also know that you ultimately are in charge of whether to accept a plea deal or not.
