People who have been around the criminal justice system are familiar with the term "3G" offense. This term came from Code of Criminal Procedure Article 42.12, Section 3G. The law was re-written in 2017 and is now contained in Code Article 42A.054 as an aggravated crime. But the content is the same. These are serious offenses, such as murder, sex crimes, crimes against children, crimes where a deadly weapon was used or exhibited, among others.
