Although Parkview Home School of Houston apparently employed no teachers, it allegedly sold high school diplomas and transcripts to over 40,000 customers since 1994, according to a lawsuit filed by the Texas Attorney General's Office. Documents filed in Harris County district court alleged that the company illegally marketed its diplomas to Texas consumers in violation of the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act.
When a Texas resident is accused of first-degree murder, they are essentially being accused of willfully and deliberately killing a person. There must also be evidence that the accused person planned the murder before taking action. There are two major categories of defense: claiming that the accused person was not involved in the murder and claiming that the accused person did kill the person in question but did not commit first-degree murder.
When a Texas resident is accused of killing another, they may be charged with murder. However, there are several different charges that may be filed against a person, including first-degree murder, second-degree murder and involuntary manslaughter. In order to be charged with second-degree murder, the person must be accused of intentionally killing another person.
