“How do I find a recently arrested person in San Antonio?”
Finding out where someone went after they were arrested can be difficult, and you may have to access websites online or make several phone calls. However, it can be a good start to visit the Magistrate’s Office Search Website to find information or call the Magistrate’s Office at 210-335-6111. If you have the inmate’s SID or System Identification Number you may call Central Filing (Misdemeanor Records) at 210-335-2238 or contact Felony Records’ District Clerk at 210-335-2591.
“Can I represent myself in a San Antonio criminal case trial?”
San Antonio law allows you to represent yourself before the court under certain criteria. However, we highly advise against it. Do not risk your future! You need a criminal defense attorney who can protect your legal rights and has the necessary experience in providing an exceptional defense strategy on your behalf. Call our criminal defense firm to represent you for any criminal charges you may be facing.
“What is a bench warrant?”
When a person fails to appear in court on a specific date after receiving a notice or order to appear, a bench warrant is usually issued. The person is subject to arrest once the warrant is issued.
If you choose to represent yourself, the court would expect you to file the correct legal paperwork and follow the complicated court procedures in your criminal case. The judge could impose harsh consequences, such as barring you from filing an important motion, if you violate the rules.
More Kinds of Assaults
Domestic assault and sexual assault are two distinct types of assault charges in Texas. Both types are punishable by simple or aggravated assault.
Crimes that are committed against family members in Texas are treated differently in state courts. The crime will be treated as a domestic matter if the person is a current or former partner, the child of a current or former partner, or someone with whom the offender lives with.
Domestic assault can include causing or threatening bodily harm intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly. Domestic assault may also include nonviolent physical contact that the defendant knew or should have reasonably known was provocative or offensive to the victim.
In the state of Texas, being accused of non-consensual sexual contact can result in being charged with sexual assault. In order to be charged with sexual assault, the act must typically include penetration.
Can An Assault Attorney Help Dismiss My Charges?
Assault is a punishable offense. It’s important to note that criminal charges are pressed by authorities in Texas, and not by the victims. This means that the victim cannot later decide to drop the charge once the legal proceedings have begun. Instead, state prosecutors are the ones who have the option of dismissing a charge.
