Texas woman will likely build defense against child injury charge

A sense of panic may set in when a person finds out that he or she is facing criminal charges. Because negative outcomes for such a predicament can have long-lasting effects, this type of reaction is understandable. However, remaining level-headed could help accused parties better determine how they would like to move forward with their defense presentations.

One woman in Texas may be hoping to remain calm after recently having charges brought against her. Reports stated that the woman had taken her 4-year-old daughter to a police station due to the young girl having serious injuries. The child was taken to an area hospital, and reports stated that the girl succumbed to her injuries the next day. The girl's injuries purportedly consisted of serious head injuries and a variety of other damage to other parts of her body.

Police apparently asked the woman why she did not call emergency services to help her daughter, and she reportedly stated that she could not locate her phone and that it was low on minutes. As a result of the situation, the woman is currently facing charges for injury to a child. It was noted that more severe charges could come about once the exact cause of death is determined.

One useful step that the Texas woman involved in this reported case may want to take advantage of is learning more about the charges leveled against her and the criminal proceeding that will likely take place. This information could help her build a meaningful defense against the charges. Additionally, the woman is considered innocent until -- and only if -- she is convicted of the allegations by a court of law.
