Overview

Using clear, easily understood language, Crime in Texas describes all aspects of the criminal justice system—officials (police, prosecutors, judges), criminal procedure, criminal law, criminal punishments, victims’ rights, and the juvenile system. This edition has been thoroughly revised and updated to reflect changes in the law since the first edition was published in 1997. To make the book even more relevant to readers, Ken Anderson illustrates his points with real-life stories of crime and punishment from his more than two decades as a district attorney.
