Legislation requires law enforcement to prioritize warrants for sex offenders violating terms of parole

AUSTIN Plano Representative Matt Shaheen announced that he has filed legislation to protect women who are victims of sex crimes by requiring law enforcement to prioritize the warrants of sex offenders who violate terms of their parole. This legislation came about directly from a constituent who was a victim of a violent sex crime and feared for her safety when warrants could not immediately be issued against the offender, Representative Shaheen said. I am working to do all I can to protect these victims in Texas law and keep these sex offenders from further terrorizing women in our state.
