("[t]o punish a person because he has done what the law plainly allows him to do is a due process violation of the most basic sort, and for an agent..

8. Castleberry v. State, 704 S.W.2d 21, 24 (Tex. Crim. App. 1984) ("[t]o punish a person because he has done what the law plainly allows him to do is a due process violation of the most basic sort, and for an agent of the State to pursue a course of action whose objective is to penalize a person's reliance on his legal rights is 'patently unconstitutional.'") (quoting Hayes, 434 U.S. at 363).

Yup that is what they do everyday to the illegally trained......especially those most vulnerable, children and their parents in Nueces County JP 2-2 court.
