Trial begins for Texas psychiatrist accused of sexual assault

The sexual assault trial against Texas state psychiatrist Dr. Charles Fischer started last Wednesday, October 26 in the 299th District Court before Judge Karen Sage.

In the two days of trial, prosecutors presented evidence against Fischer from the complainant as well as his mother, a friend, and the complainant’s counselor of eight years, Courtney Tate. Tate said the complainant had lingering guilty feelings because of what happened to him and due to his perceived role in his alleged abuse. The complainant said he was 15 years old when Fischer sexually assaulted him by rubbing his thigh and masturbating in front of him, twice.

Man convicted of planning to kidnap his attorney

Forty-eight-year-old Long Island, New York resident Glenn Terry was found guilty of second-degree attempted kidnapping and five weapons charges on Thursday, October 27. His charges are in relation to his plot to kidnap his attorney, Frank Tinari, over disagreements related to a personal injury settlement, a report from Newsday showed.

Terry, who is a former resident of Hortsville in Suffolk County, will be sentenced on Wednesday, December 14. Investigators said Terry was conspiring to kidnap Tinari for over a year. He allegedly planned to bind Tinari with duct tape, keep him in his father’s basement in Hortsville, and douse Tinari with gasoline.

Tinari, who is the chairman of the Suffolk Conservative Party, obtained a $450,000 settlement for Terry because he was scalded after falling into a bathtub of boiling water. Terry was allegedly disappointed with the amount of the settlement.

New system to enforce gun removal from domestic violence offenders

County officials in Dallas are working to launch a new system to effectively remove guns from domestic violence offenders, KHOU.com reported on July 2.

A private gun range near Love Field volunteered to store the estimated 700 to 1,000 confiscated weapons per year. Under state and federal law, domestic violence offenders are not permitted to own a firearm. However, Criminal Court Judge Roberto Cañas said this is something that Dallas County has not sufficiently enforced in the past.

Now, judges will more thoroughly investigate the likelihood that offenders own a gun and insist upon its confiscation. This program is expected to be enacted by September.

In addition to confiscation of a firearm, domestic violence charges pose serious personal and professional ramifications. If you need legal defense for your assault or domestic violence charge, enlist the experienced Austin-based criminal defense attorney Ian Inglis Attorney at Law.

No bail for Fort Hood man found attempting to smother 14-month-old stepson

Twenty-three-year-old Fort Hood, Texas resident Charles Anthony Bartley has been incarcerated while awaiting trial for his felony charge of assaulting a minor with a deadly weapon, the Killeen Daily Herald reported on May 14.

It was the ruling of United States Magistrate Judge Jeffrey Manskre that Bartley not be assigned any bond until he can be tried in court due to the gravity and sensitivity of the case he faces. The child’s mother said she found Bartley smothering her 14-month-old son’s face with a pillow on Wednesday, May 7 as she came down the stairs. The child is Bartley’s stepson. Upon seeing that she witnessed the incident, Bartley left his home and surrendered to military police.

Getting charged with any kind of criminal offense can be debilitating and life-changing because the accused might pay hefty fines or get incarcerated if convicted. Make sure that you have competent legal representation should such a situation arise by asking for the legal help of Ian Inglis.
