Relating to the prosecution of the criminal offense of continuous violence against the family.
No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
HB 1661 would allow an offense of continuous violence against a family to be prosecuted in any county in which it occurred. This bill would also authorize a jury, in a case related to ongoing violence, to not be required to agree unanimously in the decision of which county jurisdiction the defendant would be prosecuted in.
Texas Action is neutral on HB 1661 because it addresses a procedural issue and has no apparent connection to our liberty principles.
