- Why and how do innocent people get convicted?
- Why do some defendants appear to get off, while others have “the book” thrown at them?
- How can I make sure that doesn’t happen to me?
Almost everyone has asked these questions at least once. While I don’t have all the answers, I do have some thoughts and insights on why the justice system doesn’t always appear to dispense justice in Texas. I’ve put those insights - along with real-life examples - in my newest book, Criminal Injustice - Don't Become a Victim of the Criminal Justice System.
No matter what anyone says, we have the best criminal justice system in the world. But that doesn’t mean it’s perfect. And it doesn’t mean that mistakes aren’t made.
What You Need to Know About the Broken Justice System
Over the past 35+ years, I’ve seen first hand how the system can break down. I’ve represented people who have been wrongfully convicted who were able to win their release and many more who weren’t. Those cases are more than stories; they also are opportunities to learn.
In this book, I tell some of those stories, with the goal of learning from them. By knowing how the system can break down, you will be prepared to keep it from happening to you.
This book is a revised edition of my previous book, A Layman’s Guide to the Criminal Justice System. This book is a more in-depth discussion of the system. I’ve added examples, to not only help you understand but also to make sure you don’t end up as a victim of the criminal justice system. I hope it will be valuable for anyone who has a pending case, but also anyone who is interested in knowing more about our justice system.
Some of the questions answered in this book include:
- Should I talk to the police?
- How can I politely say NO when the police ask to search my car?
- What happens after you are arrested?
- How long do they have they to take to you to court, and is there really a right to a speedy trial?
- How does plea bargaining work?
How You Can Help Your Criminal Case in Texas
I've also set out what you can to do to help your lawyer, as well as some things you need to know before you even hire a lawyer. Once you hire a lawyer you can't leave everything to them. There are things you can do to help them achieve the best result possible for you, and I believe everyone wins when you know what to expect, and how the system really operates.
