Rep. Carter Casteel, R- New Braunfels, has signed on as a co-author for two bills filed to protect children.
Casteel signed on to House Bills 235 and 236, authored
by Rep. G. E. “Buddy" West, R-Odessa.
“‘The legislation is just a small step in the right direction to ensure the safety of our children and to punish those who seek to harm them,’’ Casteel said.
Currently, a person commits a crime in Tfexas if they intentionally distribute or display obscene materials without regard to whether a person might be offended or alarmed by the display or distribution.
House Bill 235 enhances
this section of the Penal Code to make it a state jail felony to display or distribute obscene materials to a child under the age of 18.
For those who seek to wholesale obscene materials or promote materials that
include children under 18, the punishment will increase from a state jail felony to a third-degree felony. And those who promote those materials “could soon be hit with a state1 jail felony instead of a class A misdemeanor,” Casteel said.
