It is Texas. The letter of the law and not the spirit of the law. I wish she could afford an attorney and have the case moved to SA, Austin, Dallas, or Houston. A jury would dismiss it. What is the purpose of giving an honors student whose parents abandoned her a criminal record, when all she was trying to do was work to keep afloat? It sounds unbelievable, but like I said, Texas is a backassward state. Fortunately the four big cities lean more moderate and usually go blue during elections. The rest is just hicksville and I think the only television channel they get is Faux News.
