Default Is he considered a violent offender??

if my husband is doing time for murder, does TDCJ automatically consider him a violent offender?? or is that term based on the way he conducts himself in there??

I could be wrong but I thought any 3G crime was considered a violent offender.

It's my understanding it's based upon the offense for which he's convicted.

Murder is a 3g offense. He is scored as a violent offender for statistical purposes.

No dumb questions! 3G is a type of offense. Offenders convicted of offenses listed under §508.149(a) Government Code are not eligible for Mandatory Supervision.

A link to Government Code 508.149 is below.

3g refers to the list of offenses found in Section 42.12 (3) (g) of the Code of Criminal Procedure that are ineligible for probation. Those same offenses tend to be ineligible for mandatory supervision when committed on/after September 01, 1987 (although the list has grown since then).

The mandatory-ineligible offenses are listed in Section 508.149 (a) of the Government Code.
