Don’t Discuss Your Case with Anyone, Except Your Attorney
If you have a loved one in jail, don’t discuss their case with them if their only way of communication is by visitation, or by using Harris County Sheriff’s Office or Houston Police Department Houston City Jail phone systems.
Believe it or not, jailhouse phone calls can be recorded, and depending on the gravity of your case/indictment, are likely being listened to, transcripted, and cataloged for review by the Dist. Atty. Even what you say through the microphones in the visitation booths can be monitored, and is likely recorded and cataloged.
Additionally, you should discourage your detained loved ones from making references to their case, and by all means to not discuss their criminal case with fellow inmates.
It’s common knowledge that people in jail are looking for a way out. Don’t give them one at the expense of your freedom, or as an attempt to earn street cred in the jail by admitting to a crime that you didn’t commit. The dangers of this situation are real. People with no hope of getting out of jail will attempt to work with law enforcement for their benefit, and your detriment. Don’t discuss your case with anyone. Even if you’ve posted a bail bond or if you’re on probation. Your words can be used against you.
As your criminal defense attorney, we need you working with us, and not inadvertently helping the adversary. Your words can be used against you. Don’t discuss your case in any situation that lacks the protection of attorney-client privilege.
Evidence Matters in Criminal Cases, As Much As Who Reviews It
No matter how many times we’ve defended people accused of the same criminal offense, each case is unique requiring an unbiased mindset prior to the development of a criminal defense strategy.
If there’s evidence in your case we’ll review it with a fine tooth comb and call in experts if the situation demands it.
If there is no evidence of your guilt the battle is in our favor. If there should be evidence of your innocence, but for some reason it’s absent, we’ll find it or expend efforts to shed light on the “problem”.
A situation like this may create a path to having your Houston criminal case dismissed. Our legal team is always on the lookout for these kind of opportunities.

Guilt, Innocence, and Avoiding Jail Time
Allegations of a criminal offense are a serious matter for the guilty and the innocent.
If you’re guilty of the crime of which you’ve been accused, and you know it, it doesn’t mean you’ll be found guilty in the court or law, that evidence against you is in existence, nor does it mean that the prosecution’s case against you is strong enough to force a conviction. It doesn’t even mean that they even have a plausible case. It only means that you’ve been accused of a crime that you agree you’ve committed, but it doesn’t mean you can be convicted.
If there’s an opportunity to show reasonable doubt, we’ll illustrate it to the court and the jury. If there’s a way to keep you out of jail we’ll pursue the option. Granted that we’re out of options, it may require making a deal with the State of Texas, accepting probation, or fighting for deferred adjudication to keep you out of prison. Regardless of what the situation is, we’re ready to adjust to it.
When the Accused Is Innocent
So you didn’t do it. If you profess your innocence to our legal team of the felony or misdemeanor offense that you’ve been accused of, we’ll approach our criminal defense strategy development process on that basis. In truth, if you’re innocent, the stakes are higher because there’s a chance a misrepresented defendant might buckle to the pressure of accepting a deal with the prosecution to quickly resolve the matter, or even worse; you get convicted of a crime that you didn’t commit.
If you’re innocent, and were wrongfully accused of a crime, contact The Cloud Law Firm P.C. or another qualified criminal defense lawyer in Houston as soon as possible. Your rights, your life, and your freedom are worth fighting for.
