What makes false imprisonment cases in Texas so difficult?
There are so many reasons why false imprisonment cases in Texas can be so challenging. Reasons why include:

What should I do if I have been falsely imprisoned in Texas?
If you have been falsely imprisoned in Texas, we strongly urge you to take the following steps:
- Do not discuss your case with the arresting police officer or another law enforcement official. Anything you say could later be used against you in a court of law.
- Do not discuss your case with fellow inmates. Even a seemingly innocent conversation about your case could be used as evidence against you.
