Animal Cruelty and Abuse
Any animal, not just pets, can be the victim of animal cruelty and abuse. Generally, charges are cruelty to livestock animals or cruelty to nonlivestock animals. Depending on what animal you are accused of abusing, and the extent of that abuse, you could be facing a misdemeanor or a felony charge. Make sure you get the best defense possible by choosing the Law Office of Eric Harron to help defend your case.
Drug crimes can range from a class A misdemeanor for smaller charges like the possession of a controlled substance to first-degree felonies for the production and distribution of drugs. Drug crimes can impact your career, make it more difficult to get a job, and can even affect where you are able to live or your ability to keep your driver’s license. Eric Harron can represent you both in and out of the court to help reduce your sentence or try to get the case dropped.
Driving with a Suspended or Invalid License
After the first offense of being charged with driving with a suspended or invalid license, the penalties begin to increase. Choosing to have a criminal defense attorney to represent and defend your case in Texas will give you a chance to find mercy in the justice system. In most circumstances, we can get you driving legally again almost immediately.
Injury to a Child or Elderly Individual
Injury to an elderly individual or a child carries more punishment than the exact same action against a healthy adult. Eric Harron knows how to defend your case, including against misleading, unreasonable, or inaccurate accusations.
Fake ID/ Fraudulent Use or Possession of Identifying Information
It might be common for people to have a fake ID to get into a bar or club. But generally, in making an arrest for this offense the police are targeting individuals with numerous identifying documents they are using to obtain money or credit.
Using someone else’s personal information without their permission is commonly referred to as identity theft and is a crime. This can include using a person’s debit or credit card or something as small as using their name or birthdate. No matter the degree of fraud, Texas considers it a serious issue and a felony crime. Get an identity theft and fraud defense attorney to try to have your charges lessened or dismissed.
Online Impersonation/ Impersonating a Public Servant
While it might start out as innocent fun or a slight joke, pretending to be someone you are not online to deceive others is a crime that can become a permanent mark on your criminal record or even land you in prison. False impersonation doesn’t even have to be of a real person; even impersonating someone who performs a particular job, like impersonating a police officer, is illegal. Get the right defense for your case by choosing the Law Office of Eric Harron, a defense attorney that knows how to represent you.
According to the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution, you have the right to bear arms; however, there are still lawful and unlawful ways to own firearms. Texans might be known for our pride in owning firearms, but Texas also vigorously enforces the laws that are in place. A firearms offense attorney like Eric can help you navigate your case to help lessen penalties or even have your case dismissed.
Hit and Run
Leaving the scene of a car accident without disclosing your information is a hit and run. This is a serious criminal charge and only increases when the hit and run involves property damage, injury, or death. The Law Office of Eric Harron can help defend you and potentially help reduce sentencing or even have the case dismissed.
Homicide, Manslaughter, and Murder
If you are found guilty of killing another person, even if it was only an accident, it can have life-altering consequences. You need the professional, aggressive defense Eric Harron provides to keep your rights intact and protect your life.
As the internet becomes larger and more powerful, there are crimes that are unique to the internet. Eric understands the complexity of internet crimes—he studied Management of Information Systems and Computer Science at Texas Tech University and worked as a software developer before entering law school. A competent attorney, like Eric, will take your case extremely seriously and help you get the justice you deserve.
Kidnapping isn’t just about taking children. It includes removing anyone of any age and holding them against their will. Charges of kidnapping can become complex with details and testimonies and can carry heavy sentences, so it’s crucial to get a defense attorney to help protect your rights. A kidnapping attorney knows how to best represent your case to ensure you are not wrongfully convicted.
Prostitution, promotion of prostitution, online promotion of prostitution, and other sex work crimes are both for those providing the sexual act or favor and those looking to pay for such acts. A defense attorney can help anyone involved in a prostitution case, to ensure they are not wrongfully charged and help build your defense.
Drinking is not illegal in Texas; however, being intoxicated to the point where you no longer have control over your mental or physical facilities and are a danger to yourself or others is illegal. Often public intoxication charges are made with little or no supporting evidence, which is why getting a dedicated defense attorney can help get your case dismissed or have the sentencing significantly reduced.
Theft is one of the most common crimes in Texas and affects roughly one in every 26 people in the state. Prosecutors have lots of experience in working theft cases, which means you need a defense attorney to make sure your rights are protected at every step of the legal process.
Criminal Mischief or Vandalism
Damaging, tampering, or defacing property that does not belong to you can lead to fines up to $10,000 and a possible jail sentence. Protect your rights by getting a vandalism lawyer who can help represent and defend your case both in and out of court.
