Update on Written Consent for Vehicle Searches in Texas

Our friend and ever vigilant legislative watcher Scott at Grits for Breakfast brings us these updates on the written consent legislation.

If this can be done in Texas it can be done anywhere!

FYI, three items on Texas legislation (SB 1195 by Hinojosa, passed and awaiting the Governor's signature) to require written or recorded consent for police to search at traffic stops:

* Written consent "preferred" by Texas prosecutor manual
* Written consent protects Texans' rights and prosecutors' cases
* Watch Texas House debate consent searches
