Recently a man was sentenced to a very lengthy prison sentence for a murder that occurred back in 2020. This trial had various examples of evidence and only took four hours of deliberation for the jury to come to a verdict. The murderer, 23-year-old Kaleb Vasquez did not receive a death sentence and as of this year the state of Texas currently has no executions lined up. This does not mean Texas will not see any executions just that it might see less this year.

While it's not a crime there has been a significant amount of people panhandling which also includes a certain scam that has been seen around various Texas cities. The Sophia Street Corner Scam is one scam that has recently made its way to Lubbock but don't be fooled by those people asking for money for the child in the featured photo they have while on the streets. While many crimes happen across the state there are some fugitives that are currently wanted and that includes sex offenders but 8 are more wanted than the rest as of March 2024.
