To beat a Tampering With Governmental Record charge in Collin County, Texas, you must use due process to confront all witnesses and challenge all evidence, which includes disputing reasonable suspicion, probable cause, and all forensic evidence. Winning requires a fight.
Even if you believe you cannot beat the case, as your Collin County Tampering With Governmental Record attorney, we will look for every avenue to help you. If you want to plead guilty, we must still fight to protect your rights. We want to ensure that the case does not ruin your life.

Getting the best result in a Tampering With Governmental Record case requires being fully prepared for all hearings and court settings – not just trials. Accordingly, when you hire us as your Collin County Tampering With Governmental Record attorney, we prepare early and thoroughly. As soon as we get on a case, the Collin County District Attorney’s Office knows that we are getting ready for trial. They know that we are going for an outright acquittal.
But the preparation often starts even before the case begins. From the moment that the police initiate an investigation or make an arrest, we have work to do. If you want to win your case, then we must do our own investigation. The state has police and investigators of their own working for them to gather evidence to support their case. We can’t afford to let their evidence stand uncontroverted.
As a client, you will benefit from the investigative resources of the entire law firm. We have a team of dedicated professionals, including paralegals, investigators, and forensic experts. Our attorneys utilize our team’s extensive investigative experience to perform the ground work that makes our cases strong.
Attorney’s fees will vary. However, you can expect to pay from on average for Tampering With Governmental Record cases in Collin County.

When consulting with a lawyer, remember to ask whether any any hourly fees apply. Additionally, most lawyers charge extra fees for trial, travel and expenses.
What You Should Do if You Are Falsely Accused of Tampering With Governmental Record in Collin County
Even when falsely accused of Tampering With Governmental Record, it’s crucial to treat the charge with the utmost seriousness. You might hope the state would dismiss the charges due to your innocence. But without skilled legal representation, the case may proceed to trial, where a jury will ultimately make the decision.
If the Collin County District Attorney has charged you with Tampering With Governmental Record, or if you are under investigation for the offense by the police, then you should book an appointment or call us as soon as possible to speak with one of our Collin County Tampering With Governmental Record attorneys.
How can you modify your Collin County bond conditions after a Tampering With Governmental Record arrest?
Texas judges have broad power to set bail and bond conditions. However, sometimes judges impose overly harsh bond conditions and astronomically high bail. To modify the conditions of bond or lower bail, you will need to file a motion in court and schedule a hearing. The judge will ultimately make the final decision. To get the best result, you should hire a Collin County Tampering With Governmental Record attorney to help. Please book a consultation with us, at which time we will discuss what we can do for you.
At your arraignment, a Collin County judge will hear your plea of not guilty. In Collin County, you may not have an attorney at your initial arraignment. However, the court will not hear a guilty plea prior to your being represented by counsel. In addition, the court may also set bail and bond conditions if you have not already received them.
If the police have arrested you for Tampering With Governmental Record, then Texas Code of Criminal Procedure §17.40 requires Collin County judges to “impose any reasonable condition of bond related to the safety of a victim of the alleged offense or to the safety of the community” to secure your attendance at trial. If the state alleges that you violated those bond conditions, then the Collin County Sheriff’s Office can immediately return you to custody. Accordingly, judges have very broad power in determining bail conditions and bond amounts.
The Texas Penal code outlines the range of punishment for Tampering With Governmental Record convictions across the state. The Penal Code classifies Tampering With Governmental Record as a Class A misdemeanor, state jail felony, second degree felony, or third degree felony, depending on the circumstances. However, the actual punishment you might receive will vary significantly based on a number of circumstances. For instance, your prior criminal history, the circumstances of the offense, and the norms of the Collin County community all play a role.
If you are convicted, then you will also have to decide if you want to have the judge or the jury assess punishment. Judges and juries may deliver vastly different sentences. Furthermore, all good Collin County Tampering With Governmental Record attorneys will also advise you on the collateral consequences of a Tampering With Governmental Record conviction. Collateral consequences are penalties derived from convictions that are not necessarily part of the penal code punishment.
