Felony charge, other allegations likely after corpse found

The choices that some people make can seem unbelievable to others. In fact, many individuals may never understand why a person decided to take or to not take certain actions.

Anyone's day can turn from bad to worse if a situation results in criminal charges.

Felony drug charges brought against man after Texas traffic stop

When facing drug charges, what does Schedule I mean?

Drugs and other substances were divided into five schedules by the federal Food and Drug Administration.

Is 1 drink too many? DWI laws are becoming more restrictive

The number of deaths from alcohol-impaired drivers has decreased over the past 30 years, yet drunk-driving crashes still took the lives of almost 11,000 people in the United States in 2017. This continuing problem is causing one state to pass tougher laws that lower the acceptable blood alcohol content 40 percent from the current limit accepted in Texas and other states nationwide. Drivers over this limit face severe consequences from DWI charges.
