Houston Police Brutality Attorney | Precinct 4 Brady Notice Appeals

VICTIM OF POLICE BRUTALITY, LAW ENFORCEMENT CORRUPTION or COERCION, OFFICIAL MISCONDUCT, OR OTHER ABUSE OF POWER?

HOUSTON POLICE BRUTALITY ATTORNEY

Recent media reports clearly show how certain police officers and other law enforcement or judicial officials do not deserve the positions and powers they hold given how they seem to operate and get away with pretty much any wrongdoing with near total impunity. We all have witnessed the on-camera beatings on TV for various local and non-local departments, the unjustified shootings, and killing or wounding of arrested suspects in jail transport and booking procedures. These do not speak for all of the law enforcement community or judicial professions, sure, however, these public records and videos clearly establish that police brutality happens fairly regularly and virtually everywhere, including in Houston and surrounding areas.

 

Citizens, Texas residents, and victims of police misconduct alike in Houston should note that police brutality or use of excessive force is not a tolerated concept when factually established in an investigation, and it can often result in severe punishments including and up to termination and even criminal prosecution of officers involved.

Houston area constables, sheriff's deputies and police officers do not particularly enjoy a stellar reputation when it comes to the local statistics of police misconduct and brutalityAccordingly, criminal defendants in Houston, TX need to be vigilant about their rights and how they are treated throughout their interaction with officials or officers, or for the duration of their incarceration. Their safety and well being is the responsibility of officials in charge and those officers are also legally prevented from violating detainees or suspects rights at all times. Remember, in many circumstances it is perfectly legal per Texas law to watch or record police activity as long as it is not interfering with, preventing, or disrupting their official duties, or otherwise involving any other illegal activities. Of course some limitations apply which you need to educate yourself about before getting in trouble for. The more you know your rights, the better you can exercise them.

If you believe your or your loved ones have been victimized by Houston area police brutality, corruption, or other official misconduct, it is in your best interest to talk to Alex Houthuijzen at your earliest chance. If your rights have been violated or if facts establish that you were a victim of illegal police or judicial conduct, Alex can pursue and earn justice for you or your loved ones from whatever departments or officials who may have been improperly involved.

And as if this was all not enough scandals surrounding Houston and Harris county criminal justice process and system, hurricane Harvey came through and our local law enforcement's poor planning once more led to a number of pieces of evidence to be damaged or destroyed due to rising flood waters. To be clear, this did not come to them in total surprise. Had they taken a note from NYPD in 2013, who themselves reached out to NOPD for advice as New Orleans had learned this lesson years prior the hard way. they would have been able to better prepare and account for such likely events, after all Houston is in a well known Hurricane zone during the season. Harris county Constable Precinct 4 had to move some 15,000 pieces of evidence due to rising floodwaters and now they state some of that evidence is missing or damaged affecting at least 13 cases.

If you or a loved one has been convicted based on destroyed (nonexistent) evidence,  or if because of these floods or poor work of local law enforcement you have received a Brady Notice, you have every right to take action to appeal such conviction and may even be eligible for some damages if the conviction is vacated and "actual innocence" is established or declared by a judge or a court, depending on the exact time served and other consequences suffered as a result of a botched investigation and subsequent conviction based on no evidence in reality. In fact, wrongful convictions in Texas have resulted in nearly $100 million to be paid out to those wrongfully convicted in the last 25 years-at least 101 individuals who have collectively and wrongfully served over 1,000 years in Texas jails and prisons.
