    You've asked several different questions here. Let me answer the first question first. A parking ticket is a Class C Misdemeanor. The statute of limitations for a Class C Misdemeanor is two years under article 12.02 of the Texas Code of Criminal Procedure. However, it doesn't sound like you really have a statute of limitations issue. Since you were given the parking ticket shortly after the alleged offense, the statute of limitations does not bar prosecution against you. I suspect...

    Evading arrest in a motor vehicle is a 4th Degree (or State Jail ) Felony so long as your son had not been adjudicated for that same offense before. Texas Penal Code section 38.04 (http://www.statutes.legis.state.tx.us/Docs/PE/htm/PE.38.htm#38.04). The range of punishment for an adult who faces a State Jail Felony charge is not less than 180 days, nor more than 2 years in the State Jail Facility and up to a $10,000 fine. It is possible that a juvenile court, hearing the case of a 16...

    If I understand your question, you're asking this: "when I was 17 years old, I was convicted of an assault family violence. I live in Texas now. I want to know if somebody attacks me, may I use a firearm to defend myself (even to the point of killing my attacker)? Will it have been legal for me to carry a firearm?" Your fact scenario presents two sets of questions. One has to do with self defense and the other appears to go to the question of whether you were able to legally carry a...

    There are three Texas Penal Code sections to look at when answering this question. First, the officer is hinting (by saying that a child could have walked by) that you could have committed the offense of indecency with a child, which is covered by Texas Penal Code 21.11. A person commits this offense if, with a child younger than 17 years old, the person exposes any part of his anus or genitals, knowing the child is present, with the intent to arouse or gratify the sexual desire of any...

    The charge for not declaring all income while on food stamps is usually either tampering with a governmental record (Texas Penal Code 37.10 http://www.statutes.legis.state.tx.us/Docs/PE/htm/PE.37.htm#37.10 ) or securing execution of a document by deception (Texas Penal Code 32.46 http://www.statutes.legis.state.tx.us/Docs/PE/htm/PE.32.htm#32.46). As you can see from either link, the range of punishment depends on the amount of the loss. If your son wants a light sentence, he needs to get...
