According to TCADP’s report, Texas Death Penalty Developments in 2023: The Year in Review, the death penalty remains geographically isolated within Texas. More than half of the thirteen scheduled execution dates last year came from just three counties: Dallas (three); Harris (two); and Bowie (2).
Juries in just eleven counties have imposed death sentences since 2019. Learn more.
