If you have been accused of making false or fictitious statements in Texas, it is important to seek the assistance of an experienced criminal defense attorney.
Several defenses may be available to individuals charged with making false or fictitious statements in Texas. One defense is that the individual did not know that the statement was false or misleading. This can occur if the individual genuinely believes that the statement is true or is unaware that it is false or misleading.
Another defense is that the individual did not make the statement willingly. This can occur if the individual was coerced or threatened into making the statement or if the statement was made due to a misunderstanding.
It is also possible to defend against false or fictitious statement charges by demonstrating that the statement was not material to the investigation or matter at hand. If the statement is not relevant to the investigated matter, it may not be considered false or fictitious.
