The appellant maintains that Texas Penal Code §21.02, entitled "Continuous Sexual Abuse of Young Child or Children" violates the constitutional and statutory requirements of a unanimous jury verdict. Where the evidence supports more than two acts of sexual abuse over the specified time, jurors need not agree as to which individual acts were committed as long as they agree the defendant committed at least two. The trial court's judgment is affirmed. Amarillo Court of Appeals, No. 07-11-0042-CR, 11-13-2012.
