New Death Sentences Since 2015

Information on new death sentences has been compiled from the Texas Department of Criminal Justice (TDCJ) and various media outlets. Please note that these figures correspond with the county in which the case originated, not where the trial occurred, and do not include re-sentences.

More information regarding recent death sentences is available in Texas Death Penalty Developments in 2019: The Year in Review. Contact Kristin Houlé at to receive a copy of this report directly via email.
