Low-carb diets could fool police breath tests

Many Texas residents who are trying to lose weight follow diets extremely low in carbohydrates. These diets work by depleting the body's glucose stores and prompting it to enter ketosis, which is a metabolic state where the liver burns fat directly to provide the body with energy. While this may be an effective way of shedding excess pounds, studies suggest that it can also fool the roadside breath-testing devices police officers use to determine whether or not motorists are driving under the influence of alcohol.

Income considerations for alimony and child support

When couples in Texas opt to end a marriage, alimony or child support may be part of the settlement agreement. When this is the case, judges generally have some leeway when determining the specific amount to be paid. While there are variations with state laws concerning alimony and child support, courts generally consider certain types of income when making payment determinations.

Ghost warrants pose problems for some citizens

Texas residents can face serious consequences as a result of inaccurate warrants. One man spent an hour in a cruiser after a warrant for a charge dismissed 25 years ago came up in a police database. The same man was taken into custody and jailed in 2014, 2015 and 2017 based on a conviction for writing bad checks in 2006. While his probation period had ended, he still spent months in custody despite the fact that no additional charges were pursued.
