Case No. 15-DCR-070286 State of Texas vs Kyle Barnhill
Criminal and civil cases have different standards for the amount of evidence necessary to get a favorable jury verdict (beyond a reasonable doubt vs. by a preponderance of the evidence). However, the standard is lower for grand jury indictment (probable cause). Nevertheless, a no-bill in the criminal prosecution has no bearing on the likelihood of success in a civil (wrongful death) lawsuit.
You should contact a lawyer who handles wrongful death cases to further discuss your options.See question
I have the license number and a description of the car because although it hit and ran, it came back around the corner 3 minutes later. I asked my neighbor to get the information while I was leaving to take my dog to the vet.
Was the dog on a leash? Were you within reach? It's possible that there is a legal theory that would allow you to sue and seek damages, but practically speaking, it would likely cost you more to litigate than you would recover.See question
I need to know if i could just keep him in there for a yr and eventually get him out
No. The county or state controls when he will get out, not the complaining witness.See question
