Women’s Chamber Honors Davis for Legislation to Combat Child Pornographers

May 8, 2012

State Rep. Sarah Davis has been recognized for her leadership in the Texas Legislature by the Greater Houston Women’s Chamber of Commerce.

Davis was presented with an award for authoring legislation, now law, that gives law enforcement an adequate amount of time to search electronic evidence to help combat child pornographers.

“Passing this legislation was particularly important to me, as it has a direct impact on the safety of our community,” Davis said. “We must provide law enforcement the tools needed to effectively hold criminals accountable for their actions.”

“A child predator should not get a free pass simply due to an arbitrary timetable.  This bill I authored will give officers the ability to appropriately analyze evidence, making our children safer,” she said. “I appreciate the Greater Houston Women’s Chamber of Commerce recognizing this legislation and its positive impact on our law enforcement efforts in Texas.”

Currently serving her first term in the Texas Legislature, Davis is on the Public Health Committee and Judiciary & Civil Jurisprudence Committee.  She is a sustaining member of the Republican National Committee and a member of the Republican Leadership Council with the Harris County Republican Party. Davis was recently recognized by the Houston Business Journal with the 40 Under 40 designation.

Davis received her undergraduate degree in Economics from Baylor in1998, before earning her Law Degree from the University of Houston in 2001.  Sarah and her husband, Kent Adams, live in the City of West University Place.

Davis represents West U, Bellaire, River Oaks, Braeswood Place, Southside Place, portions of Meyerland and Montrose and the Texas Medical Center.
