Relating to changing the eligibility of persons charged with certain offenses to
receive community supervision, including deferred adjudication community
SB 1834 would prohibit a person that was charged with continuous trafficking of persons or aggravated promotion of prostitution to be placed on deferred adjudication with community supervision. In addition, offenders charged with indecency with a child above 14 years of age, sexual assault, or aggravated sexual assault would not be allowed to be placed on community supervision.
Texas Action supports SB 1803 which would prohibit deferred adjudication community supervision for people who commit these heinous crimes. This promotes limited government and personal responsibility by preventing these offenders from getting off with a sentence that is disproportionately lighter than the crime.
