Corruption expert accused of money laundering

Texas residents may be aware that many Venezuelan officials have been accused of engaging in corruption, but Texans may be surprised to learn that a respected academic who wrote books about despotic South American regimes has been accused of helping them to launder money. Federal prosecutors say the 73-yewar-old University of Miami professor made hundreds of thousands of dollars for himself in 2017 and 2018 by helping Venezuelan officials launder millions in stolen money.

Texas man convicted on federal drug charges

A 31-year-old Texas man faces up to 20 years in a federal prison after being convicted of conspiracy to distribute marijuana. A jury found the man guilty after a trial that lasted for only one day according to a press release from the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Northern District of Texas. The man was indicted along with six alleged co-conspirators in July 2019. Five of his co-conspirators subsequently pleaded guilty to drug charges. The sixth is currently a fugitive.

Can you refuse a breath test during a Texas DWI traffic stop?

So you've gotten pulled over by law enforcement officers or swept up in a sobriety checkpoint or roadblock. Now, the officer talking to you wants you to submit to a chemical breath test. However, you know from reading about it that those breath tests aren't always that accurate.

Report raises questions about breath test accuracy

A report in a major national newspaper has called the accuracy of breath tests into question. More than 30,000 breath test results have been thrown out of criminal cases in two states because of a lack of oversight or human error. Breath testing devices that have not been properly calibrated may give blood alcohol content readings as much as 40% higher than accurate. People in Texas who are facing criminal drunk driving charges might be able to challenge the admissibility of breath testing with the help of a criminal defense lawyer.
