Here is an interesting story out of Texas about two college men on the Texas Longhorns football team. The men have been questioned about their relation to a case of sexual assault, and if they are charged, they could lose more than just their scholarships. When you're a student or adult playing professional sports, you could lose your spot on your team if you're convicted of assault. You could also be fined or end up in prison. Even if you're not found guilty or the accusations against you are dropped, your reputation could be ruined; it's important to defend yourself early on.
When you're working with children or students in Texas, it's important that you're trusted and that your image is preserved. A soiled reputation can cost you the respect of peers, and you shouldn't have to worry about your reputation being ruined because of false accusations. If you're accused of sexual offenses, it's important to know that you have the right to a fair and impartial trial.
When you're suspected of drunk driving, you may temporarily face scrutiny from friends, family members or coworkers. Fortunately, there are ways for you to protect yourself and them from the media and wrongful accusations. Until you're proven guilty, you should not be treated as if you are.
When you're charged with a crime, you would hope that the evidence is there to support the case. When a case has gone cold, it might be hard to link anyone to the evidence there, but it's clear that in some cases, the police will try. Circumstantial evidence and claims against you need to be verified, so it's important that you defend yourself well against unsubstantiated claims.
