Two out of three people who were arrested during a traffic stop in Texas have been accused of drug crimes related to the hydroponic marijuana found in the vehicle. According to a Nov. 18 report, the people had over 20 pounds of the drug in the vehicle at the time of the stop.

A man in Texas is being accused for two sex crimes and a third assault, a Nov. 19 report has indicated.

False allegations can truly tarnish your good name in Texas. Even being accused of a sex crime can make people jump to conclusions; your job could be at risk and family members may be wary of you. Friends or colleagues may spread rumors, and you could find yourself under media scrutiny. False allegations can affect you in all parts of your life, but contrary to how people may treat you, the law can't see you as guilty until you're proven to be so.
Texas has sexual assault laws that can seriously impact your case. Knowing them can help you defend yourself, especially when you understand how you can be investigated and in what ways the police can't.
