5 Questions Answered
Q. Nobody was arrested on scene. Do this mean were in the clear?
A: The answer is maybe. Usually, police will arrest the accused at the scene in a family violence case. An assault in a dating relationship is considered family violence. Your case may have been referred by the DA for further investigation, which is one explanation for why she was not arrested. In Texas, if an officer believes that family violence occurred, the accused can be charged even if the complainant does not want to file charges. Based on your description of the incident, it is a misdemeanor assault and the state has a 2-year statute of limitations to file a charge. The reality is that they will act within a few days or weeks. If she gets letters from bondsmen or lawyers, she has a warrant. You can call any bondsman and ask them to check if she has a warrant. If she does, contact a lawyer to see if she can arrange a walkthrough. Good luck!
Q. I was visiting my friend in a trailer park I used to live in.manager follows me to his trailer and tells him I'm trespas
A: A property owner has the right to bar you from their property for any reason. Now that you have received a trespass notice, if you return to the property the owner can call the police and have you charged with misdemeanor criminal trespass.
Q. CPS cleared my son of any sexual abuse case against his daughter. Can the DA press charges on him months later.
A: CPS is not a law enforcement agency and has no power to arrest. Prosecutors will file charges if they believe a child has been sexually assaulted. Once a complaint is made, CPS and law enforcement get involved. In Harris County, children who make an outcry of sexual abuse are referred to the Children's Assessment Center to be interviewed by a social worker (the interview is video recorded) and to be examined by a doctor. If the case involves a delayed outcry, meaning the alleged conduct is reported days, weeks, months or even years after it allegedly happened, there is likely no medical evidence of sexual abuse, which the doctor will report is expected in cases of delayed outcry because sexual organs heal quickly. In child sexual assault cases, police rely on the findings of the "experts" at the Children's Assessment Center to make charging decisions. Bottom line, in many child sexual assault cases the only evidence of the offense is the child's accusation. There are a lot of moving parts to these cases and you really should speak with an attorney with experience defending child sexual assault cases.
