When a person is assaulted or an assault is attempted, police often want to quickly provide reassurance to the community that no threat to personal safety remains. Regardless of law enforcement claims, those accused of crimes are presumed innocent until proved otherwise. In fact, two Texas men who were recently arrested in connection to an alleged robbery are now likely wondering about their legal options.
When an incident occurs in an area where there are hundreds of people present, it may be difficult to determine exactly what happened or who may have been responsible. Despite this, a man in Texas is now facing an assault charge after police say that he was involved in a shooting. The incident reportedly happened at a student apartment complex.
When people in Texas -- especially young people -- find themselves facing criminal charges, they are often unsure of their options or who to turn to for guidance. Unfortunately, four young people may now be feeling confused and uncertain following their recent arrests. Police claim that the four were involved in a robbery string.
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.
When there appears to be a wave of crime happening in a particular area of a city, there is an understandable concern and desire for justice. However, there must be sufficient evidence to support any criminal allegations made as a result. Unfortunately, a man in Texas now faces multiple charges as a result of several robbery accusations, among others, made against him by law enforcement officials.
