Awaiting Trial

Elliot Trejo
Final May Post

As of April 29, SB 1292 has been read and referred to the Criminal Jurisprudence and left pending in committee. It's good to know that the bill is slowly but surely making progress. In spite of this, however, it is still awaiting trial in front of the House to be reviewed, voted on, and passed. SB 1292 did very well in the Senate, and I'm hoping that the politicians inside the House have the same mentality.

I'm tired of hearing stories about someone being wrongfully executed because of a lack of evidence proving their innocence. More often than not, it's times like these where we as Americans question our justice system. I understand that this is a state bill, but it can be a catalyst for legislation all over the country. If a state like Texas can do it, so can America. I will continue to monitor the progress and activity of SB 1292 as it goes through legislation. I can only hope and pray for the best.
