Restrictions on Convicted Felons in Texas

Time in prison may not be the only consequence of a felony conviction in Texas. There are also many statutes, administrative rules, state court rules, and federal court rules that place further restrictions on convicted felons in Texas.

Since 2002, our library has kept a list of the restrictions on convicted felons which has now grown to over 300 restrictions. While we do not warrant this collection to be a comprehensive and complete listing of all restrictions on convicted felons, it is an attempt to bring together many of these restrictions for easier access by the public.

We are proud to present a new and easier-to-use platform for this collection. You may now search or browse the restrictions. Or you can browse just the employment-related restrictions. In addition, the compiled list is also available as a downloadable PDF.

Please don't hesitate to Ask a Librarian if you have any questions!
