How social media can hurt your DUI case

Some New Braunfels college students who drink and drive like to make light of their situations, especially if law enforcement catches them; it is, in fact, a way to cope with getting into trouble. Unfortunately, many of them turn to Facebook, Instagram and other outlets that can create even more problems. 

Many people feel a false sense of security when it comes to social media. They make posts and share pictures and videos about their actions online, not knowing that anything they share can become evidence against them. DUIs may seem like they are glamorous and easy charges to beat on television; in real life, they are not.

What to Do at a Texas DWI Checkpoint

Being stopped at a sobriety checkpoint is a major source of anxiety for many drivers. Regardless of whether or not you have been drinking, the process of being stopped at a roadblock, questioned by the police, and possibly being subjected to further interrogation can be an unsettling experience - especially if the police should have reason to suspect that you are guilty of driving while intoxicated (DWI). Fortunately, there are several things you can do to ensure your rights are protected and reduce your chances of winding up in the back of a squad car.

I've Been Falsely Accused of Child Molestation - What Do I Do?

One of the worst things that can happen to a person is to be falsely accused of a crime they did not commit - especially one as serious as child molestation. Texas child sexual molestation laws are some of the strictest in the country and can expose a person to incredibly harsh penalties upon conviction, including a lengthy prison sentence and the possibility of being required to register as a sex offender for life. Unfortunately, many allegations of child molestation are either deliberately false accusations by a child or are the result of simple misunderstandings, causing parents, teachers, babysitters, and other accused parties to be placed under serious legal scrutiny.

Types of Nursing Home Abuse

When you arrive at the decision to place your loved one in a nursing home, you do so with some level of certainty that they will be properly cared for. No spouse, child, or grandchild would voluntarily place their loved one in a nursing home with the threat of potential abuse. If you suspect your loved one is being abused, be sure to take immediate action. Three common types of nursing home abuse are listed below.

An Overview of Texas' Statutory Rape Laws

In the state of Texas, those aged 17 or younger do not legally have the ability to give informed consent to sexual activities. Therefore, an adult aged 18 or older who engages in sex with them is said to have committed a crime known as "statutory rape," even if the sex was actually consensual. In statutory rape cases, the prosecution is not required to prove that any force or violence was involved, just that sexual conduct occurred between an adult and someone younger than the age of 18.

Football Helmets May Actually Cause Brain Injuries

It is no secret that football is one of the roughest sports around, contributing to numerous concussions and other injuries among players every year. While many of these injuries have been attempted to be mitigated through the use of safety equipment and helmets, the effectiveness of this equipment has been questionable at best. If recent research is to be believed, however, football helmets may actually be a cause of brain injuries - causing helmet manufacturers to come under fire.

4 Reasons Why Your Airbag May Not Deploy

Aside from the seatbelt, airbags are arguably one of the most important and life-saving safety features built into modern vehicles. In the event of a car accident, airbags are designed to deploy in a split second and provide emergency cushioning against severe impacts, such as protecting a driver's head from striking the steering wheel, windows, and more. Unfortunately, defects in manufacturing or design of airbags can cause them to deploy at inappropriate times or fail to deploy at all when needed, causing vehicle occupants to suffer devastating injuries. But what exactly causes an airbag to fail?
