The Texas statutes concerning domestic violence have dramatically changed over the last few decades.

Although Texas does not have a mandatory arrest policy for domestic violence calls, there are some things you should know.

Over a dozen women arrested for alleged sex crimes

Over a dozen women were recently taken into police custody for allegedly engaging in sex-trafficking. All of the 15 who were arrested face charges of promoting prostitution, which is a felony.

Two student athletes at the University of Texas will not be on the field with their teammates as a criminal investigation against them continues. Accused of sexual assault, the head football coach decided to suspend both of them from the team indefinitely.
