Many people in Texas and across the country have made mistakes at some point in their lives. These past mistakes, however, are not indicators of the future. Unfortunately, despite attempts to overcome their pasts, many will still be judged because of them. In fact, reports describing aggravated robbery charges against a man also detail his past convictions.
The man was most recently arrested following an alleged robbery attempt that occurred at a Texas gas station on a day in mid-December. According to reports, the 29-year-old man entered the gas station around 8:30 p.m. and demanded money. A witness claims that when the clerk was unable to provide money, the man shot her several times before fleeing the scene in a motor vehicle.
The gas station clerk, a 54-year-old woman, was transported to the hospital. Unfortunately, she passed away as a result of her injuries. Though reports of the incident discuss how the man charged with the robbery connected to the woman's death was previously convicted of arson and burglary, it is unclear how the police connected him to this incident.
Unfortunately, the man is facing multiple decisions that will likely have an impact on the rest of his life as a result of the robbery allegations against him. Many people in Texas who have found themselves in a similar predicament have been unsure of their options and the potential outcomes of each. Fortunately, an experienced attorney can help the man as he navigates through the criminal justice system, including helping him create a response to the charges he is facing.
