Legal Answers
3 Questions Answered

Q. The lawyer says that Probation is out of the question what does that mean
A: Some crimes like murder don't allow for the possibility of probation from a jury. Some crimes are so offensive to a jury that there is no way if they convict that they will give probation, but the judge might have a different perspective and might either give deferred adjudication or less prison time if the person is convicted. An example is sexual assault of a child. If the jury believes the person is guilty it is very unlikely to give him probation. Some judges are tougher on these cases than others. The lawyer most likely knows the judge's predispositions and can give you the best advice for how to proceed.
Q. Im16 and a girl 19 wants to have sex is it illegal
A: The rule in Texas is if you're 16 and she's within 3 years of your age it's legal so you need to check her birthday against yours. Technically if she's 3 years and one day it's sexual assault.
Q. If a defendant chooses to defend themselves.. Can a judge declared them incompetent without a psychologist or physician
A: When a person wants to defend themselves the judge has to decide whether the person is competent in the sense that they understand the system well enough not to hurt themselves too badly. This is different from whether they are competent in the psychological sense. Being incompetent to represent yourself simply means that you must be represented by a lawyer, and the judge will decide this without input from a psychologist or psychiatrist.
