Texas v. H.W.



Texas v. H.W.

Harris County Court of Law No. 10


Client almost hit a sidewalk and bushes as he squealed around a corner. Pulled over and was too incoherent to answer any questions or walk. Carried to the patrol car and carried into jail. No scene video. Station video of him replying ‘nah’ to every question and barely standing up. 2nd DWI within 5 years so had a minimum of 5 days in jail if we lost. Prominent Houston family, we didn’t have the option of losing. The jury said ‘the State failed to prove the case beyond a reasonable doubt.’ The jury followed the law.
