Shannon Locke saved me This is a chapter in my life I don't like looking back on. But even though it took a really really long time I was able to move forward. Mr. Locke was always available to me, but sometimes I wanted it to be over with already. Still, Mr. Locke explained that I needed to be patient. Finally, I was rewarded with the phone call I will never forget. My case was dismissed. The burden I had been carrying was lifted. Thank You God! I am so glad I listened to Mr. Locke. It was money well spent! You should trust him with any crimibal accusation.

I needed the best criminal defense attorney I reached out to Mr. Locke when my previous defense attorney didn’t come through for me. Once I reached out to Mr Locke, he was able to give me piece of mind, he lead me in the right direction and gave me representation that only a seasoned criminal defense attorney can offer, or back up. When I saw Mr. Locke for the first time after my unexpected absence, he was nothing but thorough yet stern. He was able to get the job done. Compassion was a great attribute. Thank you Mr Locke !

Legal Answers
25 Questions Answered
Q. My disabled son has a warrant for his arrest due to family violence. I need to find out what options he has.
A: Too often, our criminal justice system applies cookie-cutter solutions to situations that need a unique response. You should hire a lawyer, and discuss this matter personally with that attorney. Attorneys can evaluate the facts, listen to his side of the story, and discuss how you should approach this matter with the State. An aggressive criminal defense can increase the chances of a dismissal or at the very least a tailored solution that will help your son address whatever underlying issues led to this arrest. However, this can only be done when you speak with an attorney one on one and that attorney listens to you and gives you advice about exactly how to handle this matter. Good luck and get started on finding good legal counsel today.
Q. Can he still get in trouble even though she's over 21 now.
A: This is a tough question. However, there is sufficient reason to be concerned. In Texas, you cannot touch the genitalia of a person under the age of 17 with the intent to arouse or gratify anyone's sexual interest. This is true even if the person consented. Still, there may be obstacles to prosecuting such a case and a prosecutor's office may be reluctant to move forward with such an allegation. Your friend needs to be very very careful who he talks to, as anything he tells to anyone (except his lawyer) can be used against him. He needs to contact an aggressive knowledgeable attorney ASAP so a plan can be made to avoid the filing of criminal charges.
Q. Is it constitutional that Miranda Rights are not read during arrests anymore, but only in pc court in some jurisdiction?
A: Miranda rights are required to be read before a police officer conducts an in-custody interrogation. If the police officer asks questions that are meant to incriminate you and does not read you your Miranda rights then the State will not be able to use those answers against you in court. However, whether or not you are in-custody is a legal determination made by the totality of the circumstances. Usually, police officers will claim that they are merely detaining you while they are investigating you. This is why it is best not to answer any police officer questions. Even if they do not read you your Miranda rights the State will still try to use your answer against you. So, the best course of action is not to answer a police officer's questions. The next best course of action is to hire an attorney who knows how to get statements suppressed and how to use your Constitutional rights to your advantage. Good Luck and hire an aggressive attorney.
