Video: What Should You Do if You’re Accused of a Violent Crime in Texas?

In this video, Fort Worth criminal defense attorney Christy Jack discusses what you should do if you’re accused of a violent crime in Texas.

Video Transcript:

When someone is accused of a violent crime, their natural inclination is to explain themselves and try to get their side of the story out. In fact, that’s the last thing you should do. You should be mindful not to talk to anyone – not even family or friends. Those friends and family members could be called as witnesses against you.

The police will want to talk to you in most cases. The more violent the crime, the greater the likelihood of an interrogation. Do not give any statements. I’ve never met anyone who could talk themselves out of a serious criminal accusation.
