Crim-PJC-StackSept2015-500pxAt the start of 2016, we will be publishing the third volume of the revised series on Criminal Pattern Jury Charges: Texas Criminal Pattern Jury Charges—Intoxication, Controlled Substance & Public Order Offenses.

This volume will feature multiple new chapters, in addition to updated content previously published in various volumes of the current Criminal Pattern Jury Charges series (and that will now appear only in this volume of the reorganized series).

The new chapters will cover a variety of topics. Drafts of material that will be included in the new chapters are now available for review, including text on such topics as “Escape,” “Online Solicitation of a Minor,” “Perjury and Aggravated Perjury,” “Stalking,” and “Gambling.”

Please take the time to review the new material and send comments to books@texasbar.com. As always, TexasBarBooks appreciates your assistance in crafting jury charges that are the most widely accepted in Texas.
