Anyone who has been convicted of a crime in the past knows that a criminal record has far-reaching consequences. Even years after you have carried out your sentence, you may find yourself unable to get a job, a loan or a place to live because of one mistake.
Virtually anyone can be charged with a crime in Houston, Texas. A former Houston Police Officer facing domestic violence charges is all too aware of this. Earlier this month the 36-year-old was charged with assault of a family member. Following the arrest the man’s wife sought and obtained a protective order against him. The man is currently in jail.
