Houston man pleads guilty to identity theft

Posted on January 31st, 2012 No Comments

A 30 year-old Houston man pleaded guilty earlier this week to two counts of aggravated identity theft and one count of access device fraud.

Video footage from several Houston-area Wal-Marts show the suspect using stolen credit and debit card information. Many of the victims of the man’s identity theft took the stand to testify that they did not know the accused nor did they give him permission to use their credit or debit card information.

Authorities found several gift cards re-encoded with stolen card information from at least 18 different victims from across the country in his hotel room. The man could face up to 10 years in prison and a fine of $250,000.

Officer fired after involvement in fatal drunk driving crash

Posted on January 16th, 2012 No Comments

A Katy police officer was fired from the department after it was discovered that his truck was involved in a fatal crash on Interstate 10 last week.

The officer was not driving the vehicle, but the Katy Police Department states that it could not condone his careless decision to allow a drunk man to get behind the wheel. A 48 year-old woman and her 12 year-old son were killed when the officer’s friend hit their disabled vehicle.

The mother had pulled over to the shoulder of the interstate after getting a flat tire. The truck then hit their car, causing it to burst into flames. The driver is facing two counts of intoxication manslaughter. The officer has the option to appeal his termination.

Our thoughts are with the family and friends of the victims.

10 year-old boys accused of sexually assaulting 8 year-old

Posted on January 9th, 2012 No Comments

Two 10 year-old special needs boys have been accused of aggravated sexual assault of an 8 year-old classmate on a HISD bus.

Police say that the assault was caught on the bus’ video camera and that, despite the boys’ ages, its investigation had lead to charging the boys with a serious crime. The alleged attack took place on August 25, 2011, but it wasn’t until five days later that parents were notified.

The 8 year-old victim, who suffers from ADHD, was suspended from Thompson Elementary School back in August for what administrators called inappropriate behavior. The two 10 year-old boys are currently in custody.

If you or someone you love is facing sexual assault charges, contact the Spring sexual assault lawyers of Garg & Associates at 281-362-2865 immediately to schedule a consultation.

Posted on January 3rd, 2012 No Comments

Pop star Katy Perry, 27, and actor/comedian Russell Brand, 36, filed for divorce right before the new year and never signed a prenuptial agreement, according to Brand himself.

The two had a private ceremony in India in 2010 but are legally married in the state of California. Under California law, divorcing spouses with no prenuptial agreement are ordered to split their assets 50/50. Perry is estimated to be worth $44 million, leaving Brand with the possibility of walking away with more than $20 million. Brand is estimated to be worth $15 million.

Brand filed for divorce at the Los Angeles Superior Court, citing irreconcilable differences.
