League City Criminal Defense Attorney
In recent years League City has become Galveston County’s largest city, having more than doubled its population between 2010 and 2016. Despite this rapid growth, League City remains a relatively low-crime area. According to one website that tracks local statistics, League City rates an “A+” in overall public safety, with an overall crime rate that is “33 percent lower than the national average.”
Of course, this does not that mean League City residents never get into trouble with the law. Whether you have been stopped by local police on suspicion of drunk driving or are facing more serious felony charges, it is important to work with a local attorney who understands the criminal justice system. The Law Offices of Tad Nelson & Associates helps League City residents with all types of legal problems. Attorney Tad Nelson is a former Galveston County prosecutor who understands how the local district attorneys and police operate. His team can help you and your family deal with a criminal charge and its legal aftermath.
We Fight for League City Residents Accused of Drunk Driving
As League City’s population has increased, so has the number of drunk driving accidents. In 2016, the Texas Department of Public Safety reported 45 crashes in League City related to alcohol use. Hundreds more people have been charged with DUI and DWI. For many people, a drunk driving arrest is their first–and hopefully only–brush with law enforcement.
Unfortunately, in their zeal to rack up drunk driving convictions, League City officials made headlines in June 2016 when the supervisor in charge of overseeing DWI breath-analysis testing was fired due to a “variety of performance issues.” Put another way, hundreds of DWI convictions throughout League City and Galveston County were placed in jeopardy due to unreliable testing results. Indeed, the League City testing scandal even affected cases in Houston and Harris County.
Blood, breath, and other chemical tests are often the key piece of evidence used to convict someone of criminal drunk driving. But these tests are only as reliable as the people and methodology employed. At the Law Offices of Tad Nelson & Associates, we know how to scrutinize and cross-examine all of the evidence introduced against you. Nobody is perfect, not even law enforcement, but their mistakes should never be allowed to send you to jail.
