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.
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.
