20 facing charges related to drug crimes in Texas

Twenty people were recently taken into custody as part of a police crackdown on drugs in Central Texas. Police say that the drug ring targeted had ties to another state as well. Those in the Lone Star State who face federal charges for drug crimes fortunately have the right to defend themselves aggressively against the accusations in the criminal court system.

Child custody, splitting of retirement accounts can be complex

With the holidays soon in the rearview mirror, some couples in Texas are ready to zoom ahead to divorce court. In fact, the first Monday in the month of January is often known as Divorce Day in the legal world. A few tips may help those going through divorce to be prepared for the multifaceted process, which may range from dividing retirement accounts to deciding about child custody.

Update beneficiary designation on retirement accounts

People experience many changes in their lives as they grow and mature. Often, there are marriages and children and plans for the future, but there could also be divorce and remarriage. A change in marital status can have a huge impact on a person's life. While many remember to update essential documents such as wills after a divorce, they forget about retirement accounts and what will happen in the event of their death. In Texas and many other states, retirement accounts are not considered part of an estate and may not be included in the provisions of a will.

Driver sentenced in DWI crash

A man who was accused of DWI with regard to an accident that occurred over two years ago will now serve 28 years in prison. A jury handed down the sentence after four days of testimony. The man allegedly ran a red light in North Austin and slammed into a college student from the University of Texas. She was killed instantly. Charges related to DWI are serious under any circumstances, but more so when they are related to a fatal accident. 

Juvenile defense: Focusing on the person behind the accusations

Young people today are exposed to outside influences in the world that may negatively affect the rest of their lives. In Texas, after his parent's divorced, one youth was shuttled between two households in dangerous neighborhoods. He soon turned to the streets to support himself. His activities landed him in trouble with the law, and he was sent to juvenile detention. "Juvie" is a place that most people claim is the beginning of a long life filled with juvenile defense attorneys and jail time. 

How is property divided in a Texas divorce?

Divorce is a difficult time on both an emotional level as well as a financial level, which is one of the reasons that it is such a challenging life event to successfully overcome. Especially when it comes to the division of assets, one false move can have a long-term impact on your financial well-being. 

What happens if your underage child is charged with a drug crime?

It is not uncommon for school personnel to find controlled or banned substances on a student in high school, either in a locker or a backpack or even on the student. Teenagers tend to take risks without the necessary reflection or prior judgement about the possible consequences of their actions.

The ruling for the request opens the door for the Texas Department of Public Safety. They are set to release the footage on Friday. In Texas, police recordings of the DUI/DWI arrest showed the singer nude and disoriented.
