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.
§78. Estates Of Decedents — Persons Disqualified To Serve As Executor Or Administrator
No person is qualified to serve as an executor or administrator who is:
(a) An incapacitated person;
(b) A convicted felon, under the laws either of the United States or of any state or territory of the United States, or of the District of Columbia, unless such person has been duly pardoned, or his civil rights restored, in accordance with law;
Note(s) Regarding This Legislation:
This section is repealed by Acts 2009, 81st Leg., ch. 680, § 10(a), effective January 1, 2014.
Acts 1876, p. 96. G.L. vol. 8, p. 932. Rev.Civ.St.1879, art. 1857
Rev.Civ.St.1895, art. 1910. Rev.Civ.St.1911, art. 3277. Vernon's Ann.Civ.St. art 3353.
The new statute, Estates § 304.003, appears to continue the felony restriction unchanged.
