If you are accused of Evading Arrest in Houston Texas you need an experienced Houston criminal defense attorney to aggressively protect your rights and defend you against the allegations. Although evading arrest on foot is a misdemeanor and not a felony you face the possibility of jail time, a fine, and a potentially devastating criminal history. To convict you of Evading Arrest or Detention on foot the prosecutors must prove that you intentionally fled from a person you knew was a peace officer who was attempting to lawfully arrest or detain you. That sentence creates numerous possible defenses such as:
- Did you actually flee?
- Were you aware that the person trying to detain you was a peace officer?
- Was the arrest or detention lawful?
- Was the peace officer actually arresting or detaining you?
