Felony Restrictions by Code
Below is a listing of the Texas Codes that contain statutory restrictions on convicted felons. Click on a code to view the restrictions we have been able to identify within that code. We do not warrant this to be a complete listing of all restrictions for felons.
Article 4 Sec. 11. Executive Department — Board Of Pardons And Paroles; Parole Laws; Reprieves, Commutations, And Pardons; Remission Of Fines And Forfeitures
(b) In all criminal cases, except treason and impeachment, the Governor shall have power, after conviction or successful completion of a term of deferred adjudication community supervision, on the written signed recommendation and advice of the Board of Pardons and Paroles, or a majority thereof, to grant reprieves and commutations of punishment and pardons; and under such rules as the Legislature may prescribe, and upon the written recommendation and advice of a majority of the Board of Pardon
Note(s) Regarding This Legislation:
11(b) was amended during the 82nd Legislature by SJR 9. The phase "or successful completion of a term of deferred adjudication community supervision" was added after "In all criminal cases, except treason and impeachment, the Governor shall have power, after conviction."
Only by executive pardon are the full rights of a felon restored.
