From reviews of the first edition: There is nothing modest about the title of a new book by Ken Anderson--Crime in Texas: Your Complete Guide to the Criminal Justice System. But in only [208] pages, the book comes pretty close to living up to its [title]. It is a handy, readable reference for crime victims, elected officials, and anyone else with more than a passing interest in the criminal justice system. Anderson mixes comprehensive crime statistics and explanations of criminal laws and courtroom procedures with accounts of actual crimes. --Houston ChronicleUsing 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
