Texas Restrictions After a Felony Conviction landing page

Time in prison is often not the only consequence of a felony conviction in Texas. There are also many statutes, administrative rules, state court rules, and federal court rules that may further restrict a person with a felony conviction on their record in Texas. This collection attempts to bring together many of these restrictions for easier access by the public.

This revised online edition has been expanded to include over 300 restrictions. In this online edition, we have also annotated each restriction with tags that can help users easily identify the restriction's subject matter as well any professional, occupational, or business licenses that may be affected by a felony conviction.

Whether a conviction is subject to a particular statute may be determined not only by the language of the statute but also by court interpretation. Determining the impact of one's criminal record is complex.
