What is the statute of limitations for felonies in Texas?

A statute of limitations is like a countdown. Once it reaches zero, the time that a person could be prosecuted for a crime has expired, including a number of crimes defined as felonies under Texas law. However, a statute of limitations does not last for the same amount of time for every felony. Depending on the severity of the crime, some statutes will last longer.

How does Texas rank when it comes to violent crimes?

Violent crimes are those that intentionally cause or can cause bodily harm to another person. They are considered the worst possible crimes and include murder and rape. According to the Amarillo Globe-News, crime figures also include robbery under violent crimes but not burglary. It can be confusing, but in general, violent crimes are the worst crimes that harm people directly and not property. It is not good news when you look into the violent crime rate in Texas.
