17 Questions Answered
- Q. In Texas are police officers required to report a crime when they learn of it?
- A: Police have discretion to report, ticket, or charge someone with a crime. For example, police often see a traffic offense, and find during the course of a legal stop that they may have the legal authority to write 4 different tickets. A good police officer may only choose to write one ticket, and educate the driver about the other issues. This would be an example of police discretion. Remember that police are human beings too. They want to enforce the law, but they also want to have good relations with other people. Being kind and polite to police officers is always a good idea; just don't let them push you around or intimidate you, and remember to never confess to breaking the law.
- Q. Can two 17 year olds in Texas who both consent to having sex with each other be stopped from having sex by the parents
- A: In Texas, the age of consent is 17. That means 17 year olds can consent to sex, so there is no legal issue there. However, our legal system also treats those under 18 as "minors." While living under the parents' control, minors are expected to listen to and obey their parents. However, disobedience to parents is not a crime. Legally, the parents cannot stop two 17 year olds from having sex, unless they "ground" the minor or take other non-legal measures to enforce their parenting rules.
- Q. Is communication between my husband and our son (who is 5) while he is dealing with a criminal court case a problem?
- A: It sounds like your sister wants punishment that is bigger than the crime. What he did was wrong, but should be lose his marriage and contact with his son over it? Or should you forgive him and try to understand why he did it, and reconcile? That's for you to decide. Your sister will find her own way--don't let her hold your marriage hostage. Legally speaking, it sounds to me like your husband can communicate with you and his son until he is prevented from doing so by a court order, like a protective order. Without seeing more details about your situation, it's hard to say for sure. Your husband and your family will have the best outcome if you hire a skilled attorney to help your husband through this trouble.
