8. A really difficult question.

Extra-territorial jurisdiction is a complex problem.

The argument would be that it's the actions in fleeing Texas - that occur in Texas - is what is being prosecuted. I don't think it would fly once the case got beyond the Texas state courts. In the meanwhile, a poor woman will spend time in jail and spend a fortune in legal fees.
