When a person is arrested, and the Harris County D.A. pursues charges of Assault on a Public Servant, it’s always a serious felony and the result of a disastrous situation that the Capitaine Law Firm feels should put the radar on both the police officer and the accused.
In many cases that I’ve seen in which clients of mine were criminally charged in this fashion, its a result of over-aggressive policing and unforgiving, unreasonable oversight on the part of law enforcement.
