Overview

Compact yet comprehensive, Texas Criminal Law presents the technical and sometimes complicated subject of criminal law in an easy-to-digest language and format. A study guide for undergraduate criminal justice students, the text also serves as a handy reference for administration of justice professionals. In addition to the Texas Penal Code provisions, information on controlled substances from the Health and Safety Code, vehicle crimes from the Vehicle Code, and child provisions from the Family Code rounds out this substantive volume. Author Cliff Roberson organizes each chapter for maximum accessibility - he begins each paragraph with the code provision, notes the essential elements of each offense, and examines these key elements in nontechnical terms. Each chapter concludes with discussion questions and case problems. Texas Criminal Law discusses all the major state crimes. Other topics include definitions, preemption, culpability, causation, parties to a crime, criminal responsibility of corporations, and punishment. An ideal text for students and an indispensable resource for criminal justice professionals and personnel, this volume provides a study of the statutes, elements of the crime, the limits that are placed on our government in the control of criminal behavior, and the fundamental role that criminal law plays in our society.
