The 10th Court of Appeals (Waco), in Ford v. State, recently upheld the conviction and sentence of the 19th District Court of McLennan County wherein Ford was convicted for violating Texas' sex offender registration statute (Tex.Code.Crim.Proc.Ann. art. 62.101(c)(Vernon 2006)). Ford was evicted from his home. Because of his eviction, Ford was unable to comply with the registration statute which requires a sex offender to update his new address with county officials at least 7 days prior to his move. Although Ford's move was arguably unexpected, he was convicted and sentenced nonetheless.
I'm sure there's much more to this story, and the State was probably justified, but it appears that Ford got a raw deal. Texas courts have no mercy on sex offenders (and rightfully so if you ask me).
