Criminal Defense

A shooting suspect in Denton was recently arrested due to an altercation with his roommate. A man initially walked out of his apartment with blood on his hands. He claimed that his injuries were the result of self-defense due to a disagreement with his roommate.

Law enforcement later responded to the scene after reports of gunshots heard inside the home. The suspect who was covered in blood was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after shooting his roommate in the foot with a Glock pistol. The victim was transported to a nearby medical facility with a head injury as well as bullet fragments in his foot.

Questioned by law enforcement at the hospital, the victim revealed that while he was sleeping, the roommate had entered the room with a gun and accused the victim of stealing a speaker. The man then held the victim at gunpoint and repeatedly struck the victim in the head with the pistol. Later, when the victim tried to run outside, the man fired and hit the victim’s foot. Eventually, the victim contacted law enforcement from a nearby phone.

A man was recently arrested after he exposed his genitals at the Golden Triangle Mall. It is uncertain if the event took place inside or outside of the mall. As a result, a report for disorderly conduct was filed.

Important Laws Regarding Indecent Exposure

A woman in the Denton area was recently accused of striking her son more than five times on the head before law enforcement arrested the woman and charged her with injury to a child. After law enforcement arrived at the home, the child’s father reported that he had never seen the mother so angry. The father also told law enforcement that the child had picked up the woman’s tablet to play with in the bathroom but was not supposed to do so, which led to the argument. Subsequently, the woman was taken to the Denton City Jail in lieu of a $10,000 bail. Child Protective Services were also called to the scene of the incident to investigate the crime.

If you have been charged with injury to a child in Denton or the surrounding area, it is a wise idea to speak with a knowledgeable attorney who understands how these charges arise and who can help create a strong defense. It often also helps to understand some of the various details about the law.
