Reputation Arguably the most important thing for any attorney, but especially a criminal defense attorney, is your reputation. The very first thing I learned in law school was to protect your reputation. The very first thing I learned as a lawyer was to protect your reputation. The people who passed that knowledge onto me could not have been more truthful. As far as I am concerned, I have many groups that I have to create and maintain a reputation with. Those groups include my clients, fellow criminal defense attorneys, prosecutors, court staff, and judges. While I the same basic qualities and traits, such as truthfulness, timeliness, and kindness are the common threads among all groups, you are bound to have a different reputation with each different group, if you even have one at all.

Criminal defendants tend to be confused about the burden of proof just as much as our jurors, and, honestly, many criminal defense attorneys. If you are charged with a crime in Texas, or anywhere in the United States, it is the government’s (prosecutor’s) to prove your guilt. It is their burden only, and it doesn’t matter if it is a traffic ticket, a marijuana case, a cocaine case, assault charge, robbery charge, or murder charge. It Never Changes. Criminal defense lawyers never have to prove our clients’ innocence. So why then do so many criminal defense lawyers like feel that they need to prove their client’s innocence? First off, it is natural. In our everyday lives if we see something that indicates something, and we therefore believe it to be true. We don’t presume innocence.…Read More

Brazoria County Drug Case Not Guilty Verdict
  • By: Cory Roth, Esq.
  • Published: October 31, 2017

Not Guilty In Brazoria County Trials are a rare thing. Not guilty verdicts are an even rare thing. The statistics vary between state and federal court, misdemeanors and felonies, and the type of crimes charged. They obviously vary between counties and between lawyers. The numbers don’t scare me. This year alone, I have tried 5 cases which resulted in 3 not guilty verdicts, one hung jury, and one guilty verdict. I want to dedicate this blog post to my most recent not guilty victory in Brazoria County; a place where acquittals are few and far between. If you want to watch me talk about this case, visit this YouTube link. The “Facts” I put the word facts in quotes above because there are different ways to interpret facts. The government has their facts and I… Read More

Felony Possession of Controlled Substance Case Dismissed Due To Illegal Stop and Search The Fourth Amendment of the United States Constitution is a beautiful thing. It protects each-and-every one of us, citizens and non-citizens alike, from unreasonable and intrusive police conduct. This case was about just that – unreasonable, intrusive, and illegal police conduct – that caused my client to be unlawfully arrested and charged with felony possession of a controlled substance. When Can The Police Legally Search Me ? The basic rule under the fourth amendment is that the police may only conduct reasonable searches and seizures. Searches with a valid search warrant are presumed to be reasonable. Searches without a search warrant are presumed to be unreasonable. When the accused establishes that the stop or search occurred without a warrant, it becomes the… Read More

Mark this as the second time in recent memory that I have had an unlawful carrying of a weapon case dismissed on trial day, and boy was I ready to try this case. I put in all the hard work, like any good criminal defense lawyer would, to be ready to try the case, but to be fully frank, there was a lot up luck in this gun charge dismissal. At the end of the day, this is another happy client who was referred to me by a well respected lawyer. What Is Unlawful Carrying Of A Weapon? Gun owners are actually under pretty strict rules in Texas about how, when, and where they can carry their weapons. A lot of this depends on whether the weapon owner has a Concealed Handgun License, or CHL.… Read More

Defining Reasonable Doubt Let’s say that it is Halloween. You wake up to an eerily foggy, cool, brisk, sunrise. You walk to the kitchen to get your day started. You start your Keurig and pop in some toast. Being the good parent and neighbor that you are, you already went shopping for Halloween candy. You went to the big box store and bought 2 bags of assorted candy. You open one bag as you turn on the TV to the local news channel. It is a commercial break. Your toast isn’t ready. Nor is your coffee. You take out a Nestle Crunch bar, take off the wrapper and bite into the chocolate bar. It tastes smooth and delicious. The little rice crispies snap, crackle, and pop. It is officially they start of the holiday season.… Read More
