New legislation would give life sentences to repeat sex offenders in Texas

New legislation in Texas would mean that certain repeat sex offenders could receive life in prison without parole.

Last week, the bill was approved unanimously in the Texas House. These offenders would have to be convicted a second time of sex with a child under six years old or on a charge where weapons are used in a sex crime. The bill faces another obstacle before being sent to the Senate for approval.

Being charged with a sex crime can change a person’s life. If you or a loved one are in this situation, contact the sex crimes defense attorneys Dallas of the law office of Mark T. Lassiter by calling (214) 845-7007.
