A Fort Worth teacher, Brenda Jones Stafford now faces a felony charge of injury to the elderly after she allegedly choked and pushed a 71-year-old woman and, when her 73-year-old husband attempted to intervene, shoved, hit and choked him, too.
Texas law recognizes the elderly as a special class of citizen and specifically provides special protections for Texans over the age of 60. See Tex. Hum. Res. Code Ann. § 102.003. Notably, elderly individuals have the right to be treated with dignity and respect for the personal integrity of the individual. Id. at § 102.003(b).
