I always tell everyone to assume they are being videotaped at all times! Here is an interesting article about a Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission (TABC) sting. In this instance, it was the TABC agent who was on the receiving end of the sting. A good criminal defense attorney was able to use video evidence to prove his client's innocence. Additionally, he was able to show that the sting was carried out in such a way that the TABC agent could be charged with giving alcohol to a minor. The bartender knew the law and did the right thing.

Marijuana and Texas: What You Need To Know

Marijuana, marihuana, cannabis, and Mary Jane: it’s all the same when you are caught with the green leafy stuff. Getting caught with marijuana is against both State and Federal law. What does this mean for you? In Texas, the seriousness of the charge will depend on how much marijuana that an officer finds in your possession. This is what the Texas Criminal Code says:

February is Warrant Forgiveness Month in the Fort Worth Municipal Court! According to the Star Telegram, the Fort Worth Municipal Court will forego arresting those who show up to take care of their warrants with the court. Instead of arresting those with outstanding warrants, the court will offer reductions in fines or sentencing or possibly community service for the month of February. The purpose of these events is to help community members take care of outstanding warrants for these low-level offenses without facing the humiliation of being booked into jail on their warrant.

Fort Worth will also have remote locations available for people who cannot make it to the municipal court. As part of the “Courts in the Community” program, warrants can be taken care of at these locations:

  • Wednesday, Feb. 6, 9 a.m.- noon, Chisholm Trail Community Center, 4936 McPherson Blvd.
  • Thursday, Feb. 7, 9 a.m.- noon, Victory Forest Community Center, 3427 Hemphill St.
  • Wednesday, Feb. 13, 9 a.m.- noon, Riverside Community Center, 3700 E. Belknap St.
