Case No. 1563574 – Talha K.

GRAND JURY NO BILL Oct 18th, 2017

Talha H. was charged with evading arrest motor vehicle in Houston, TX. We proved Talha’s brakes failed as police were trying to pull him over and that he was unaware they were behind him and unable to stop until he crashed. Despite the fact hospital blood work showed illegal drugs in his system we presented enough evidence for a No Bill of indictment allowing Talha to pursue his dream of a career in medicine.

Case No. 1519811 – Rafael H.

DISMISSED OCT 24

This was a 3 mile motorcycle chase on Beltway 8, with Rafael looking back at the officer repeatedly as he accelerated and drove recklessly, weaving in and out, passing cars on the shoulder and within the same lane. Rafael was in his 3rd year of his high school’s Army JROTC program. His family hired us to fight for a Dismissal, which he needed for his military officer goals. He was hoping for a reduction to Reckless Driving but we were able to prove he could not have known the officer’s intentions and also used dash cam and other evidence, including testimony from his boss, a prominent Hispanic funeral home director to win this Dismissal.

Case No. 1128183 – James W.

DISMISSED

James had borrowed a car from a friend, unaware it was stolen. He had no prior criminal record or police contact so when police put their lights on, and his passenger “friend” jumped out and ran, James reacted in fear and, without thinking, ran also. This formed part of our defense, which led to a Dismissal.


EVADING ARREST IN A MOTOR VEHICLE

Case No. 1258470 – Joyce H.

GRAND JURY NO-BILL

This was a high speed chase with lights and sirens resulting in an accident with an unrelated vehicle in the middle of the chase which continued after the accident. (A related case of Failure to Stop and Give Information was filed which we got dismissed.) Joyce had taken her daughter to re-enroll in high school after the Dismissal of two related CPS cases of child abuse and runaway. While the ISD police officer was investigating the allegations that the cases had not been dismissed, Joyce nervously made for the door of the school with her daughter in tow. The officer physically detained Joyce, who pushed the officer and shouted “Run!” to her daughter. The daughter ran and Joyce followed in her vehicle despite the officer’s cries to stop. Joyce picked up her daughter, on foot, disregarding police lights and sirens, drove on the median, ran a stop sign, ran a red light, hit a vehicle in the intersection, spun out of control and then kept going until the officer lost sight of her. (Another officer found her.) Joyce had a lengthy criminal history and at the time these charges were filed on her she was paroled out of TDC on felony drug charges. We prepared our evidence and defenses, aggressively argued the case with the DA’s and finally were able to get the case and our client before the Grand Jury.

I put my faith in Mr. Haggard and God and neither let me down. Mr. Haggard gave me excellent advice the whole way through and I don’t think I would be at home with my family without Mr. Haggard. He’s an excellent attorney and he will fight for you until the end.

Case No. 1021135 – Louis U.

DISMISSED

Our client was stopped after leaving a bar where he had consumed 6 beers. He did not want to contest his DWI charge but he did want to contest the evading case, as he did not realize the police were after him. Once he realized they were, he was almost home (less than one block) and as there was no place to pull over he pulled into his driveway.
