Texas law on children seeing porn being challenged

DALLAS — Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott [pictured] is being asked for an opinion on a law that a Dallas-area woman says let her ex-husband show their children pornography.

Public indecency laws provide certain exceptions for parents and guardians when it comes to the sale, distribution or display of material considered harmful to minors.

KTVT-TV reports the viewing involving a computer and sex acts allegedly happened in February when her three girls were with their father in Amarillo.

Two girls, ages 8 and 9, later told a counselor during a therapy session in Plano.

The mother contacted Amarillo police, who referred the matter to Randall County District Attorney James Farren in an effort to bring charges against her former spouse.

Farren in mid-September contacted Abbott’s office. AG spokesman Jerry Strickland said the office is going through the opinions process.
