Can an arrest for domestic violence be made without a warrant?

An individual in Texas who is alleged to have committed a domestic assault may be taken into custody even if an officer does not have a warrant. As long as there is evidence that a crime has been committed or is threatened to be committed, the person may be taken into custody right away. In the event that someone makes a statement to a peace officer, that statement could be used as probable cause to take that person into custody.

Domestic violence registry passed in Texas

The Texas House of Representatives passed House Bill 21, which creates a domestic violence registry that will look like the one used for the Texas Sex Offender Registration Program. Once Bill 21 goes into effect, a person convicted of domestic violence at least three times will have to register as a repeat offender. For a registered offender, the state will place the name of the individual online. Along with the name will be the birth date and recent photograph. Anyone will be able to view the information for free.
