Law enforcement officials in most cities do everything they can to lower statistics for major crimes. In Dallas, there is one crime that law enforcement believes has been underreported, and they are doing all they can to make those numbers rise. That crime is sexual assault.
Possession and promotion of child pornography are serious criminal charges that can have a devastating effect on a person's reputation and career. Just north of Dallas, a Texas man was recently arrested and charged with possessing child pornography. Defending against charges such as this and protecting the rights of the defendant requires a prompt evaluation of the evidence and ongoing investigation, including the basis for a search warrant.
In our system of justice, every person is entitled to the best defense available to him or her. It doesn't matter if it's a first offense or multiple charges, understanding what is at stake as soon as possible after an arrest is important.
First-time offenders and career criminals alike are entitled to a vigorous defense when facing criminal charges. Regardless of guilt or innocence, an individual who has been arrested on charges such as drug possession has rights that need to be protected throughout the process. Law enforcement officers will do their jobs according to standard procedures, but they are not exempt from making mistakes. A suspect needs a clear understanding of his rights and options when facing allegations that could lead to jail time.
