Louisiana did have the death penalty for child rapist, but the US Supreme Court found this a violation of the 8th amendment. As it stands right now, in no State in the Union can you be executed for the crime of rape, regardless of the victims age. If the victim dies in the course of the rape, then you can be charged with felony murder in most if not all jurisdictions, but rape alone will not get you the death penalty.
Texas is awesome but this is one area where we fall short.

On the upside, I’m sure they’ll meet many friendly Hispanics in prison.
Heck, they might even throw those maggots a party one night when nobody’s looking.
[’cause sometimes, the guards “get distracted”, ya know?]
