My husband was arrested for having possession of body armor and he is on parole. Is there anyway to get him out of this?

CPS and Parole are trying to get him to go back to prison and I need him out here to help me get my kids back. Is there anyway possible way to drop these charges against him? If not he’ll be in prison for another 2-5 years after already serving a year and a half. Plus a year and a half that he has left on parole. I need some advice about this situation, I really need some help.

Texas law makes it a crime for a convicted felon like your husband to have body armor.  If he is convicted of that crime, he will also be in violation of his parole from the earlier sentence.

Without knowing exactly what your husband had, that they are saying is body armor, it is very hard to tell you that there any way to get the charges dropped.  If there was some excusable reason for him to have had it, that might be another way out, but the statute itself does not have any exceptions.

Your husband is in very serious trouble, and needs a good criminal defense attorney. If you need to find a lawyer, you can do that at http://attorneypages.com
