Domestic Violence Registry?

Several bills are pending before legislature in Texas to stiffen penalties for serial domestic abusers. One bill would place repeat offenders on a Family Violence Registry after the second or third conviction for assault with bodily injury to family member. A second bill would increase the third assault to a second degree felony with punishment range from two to twenty years in prison. Currently, a second or third assault is a third degree felony with punishment ranging from two to ten years prison or probation up to ten years probation.

San Antonio democrat Trey Martinez-Fischer filed House Bill 21 and it isn’t his first attempt to get domestic violence registry legislation passed. In 2011, Martinez-Fischer tried to make the Domestic Violence Registry law with House Bill 100; it died in committee.
