If I am caught smuggling drugs, what will I be charged with? | Houston Criminal Defense Attorney

Is it important to call a defense attorney? | Houston Criminal Defense Attorney

Any time you feel you are being investigated for a criminal charge, you should immediately contact an experienced Houston criminal defense attorney. When law enforcement officially charges an individual with a crime, it becomes more difficult to collect evidence. Therefore, law enforcement often works to collect evidence prior to actually charging the suspect. If you have even the slightest suspicion that law enforcement is investigating you, contact Attorney Brent Mayr. He will help you protect yourself and any evidence from law enforcement to prevent any charges from ever being filed. Call Brent at (713) 808-9613 for a consultation. Transcription Brent Mayr: Any time you suspect that you are being investigated for a criminal offense is the most critical moment when a person needs to have a good criminal offense attorney like myself representing them. Law enforcement becomes hampered once a person is charged. Law enforcement’s ability to gather evidence against an individual is severely hampered when they charge that person, and for that reason, law enforcement will sometimes wait and try to gather evidence before they charge someone. Sometimes just having a suspicion of an investigation can be in that person’s best interests because it gives them the opportunity to say, “Hey, I need someone like Brent Mayr to represent me on something like...

If I was texting and driving, can I be charged with vehicular manslaughter? | Houston Criminal Defense Attorney

An individual who is texting or talking on their cell phone while driving and gets into an auto accident faces the possibility of felony criminal charges. Law enforcement can obtain cell phone records or texting data to prove someone was using their cell phone at the time of the accident. This could lead to being charged with a felony offense that results in up to twenty years in prison. Having an experienced Houston criminal defense attorney who knows what steps law enforcement takes during these investigations can help keep you out of jail. Attorney Brent Mayr has former prosecutor experience, allowing him to help clients take steps to protect themselves during these investigations. Don’t let negligence turn into a felony offense. Contact Brent Mayr today at (713) 808-9613. Transcription Brent Mayr: An individual who is texting and driving, talking on their cell phone and driving, definitely faces the possibility of criminal charges. Law enforcement will try to take what are negligent acts or acts that are not in and of themselves illegal and try to make them illegal. It’s not illegal to talk on a cell phone and drive. It’s not illegal to text and drive, but if there is any suspicion that that might have taken place, that individual can find themself not charged with just any kind of criminal offense but with a felony offense, where they face anywhere from up to 10 or 20 years in prison. I know firsthand from my experience that investigating those types of acts, such as texting or talking on the cell phone, are not easily determined from the very outset,...

Should I make a statement to my insurance company? | Houston Criminal Defense Attorney

One of the most common mistakes people make after being in an auto accident is making statements to individuals about what has occurred.

Attorney Brent Mayr can take steps to prevent charges from ever being filed in the first place by stopping evidence from reaching insurance companies or law enforcement. Call him today for a consultation at (713) 808-9613. Transcription Brent Mayr: One of the most common mistakes that an individual makes when they’re involved in a motor vehicle accident is making statements by talking to individuals about what has occurred. An individual thinks, “Oh, I’m perfectly safe telling my insurance company this is what happened.” But I know, having been a former prosecutor, that those insurance records can be obtained by law enforcement, and the statements that are made to an insurance company can be used in a criminal prosecution.

Should I blow into a breathalyzer? | Houston Criminal Defense Attorney

Generally, it is always in a person’s best interest to refuse a breathalyzer test if they are pulled over by law enforcement. You are under no obligation to perform a field sobriety test, a breathalyzer test, or make any incriminating statements to law enforcement if you are pulled over and suspected of a DWI/DUI. However, if you refuse a breathalyzer test, law enforcement may be able to forcefully take your blood. Also, you can have your driver’s license suspended for up to six months if you refuse a breath test. From early on, it is important to have an experienced Houston criminal defense attorney on your side to advise you on what you should or should not be doing in a DWI case. Attorney Brent Mayr has former prosecutor experience and he will work tirelessly to try to get you the case results you deserve. Call Brent today at (713)808-9613. Transcription Brent Mayr: “Do not blow” has been a common advice given by criminal defense attorneys for a long time, and generally it is always in a person’s best interest to refuse a breath test. The problem here in Texas now is that law enforcement is starting to use no refusal programs more and more often. When dealing with any time a person is suspected of a DWI, they need to know that they are under no obligation to perform any field sobriety test, they’re under no obligation to make any incriminating statements to law enforcement officers, and they’re under no obligation to take that breath test. However a person does need to be aware that under certain circumstances,...
