This volume, the fourth of the new, reorganized Texas Criminal Pattern Jury Charges series, includes updated material originally published in Texas Criminal Pattern Jury Charges—Crimes against Persons, 2011 edition, and Texas Criminal Pattern Jury Charges—Property Crimes, 2013 edition.

For this series, the committee designed an instruction outline that explicitly states the relevant statutes and legal definitions and then applies the law to the facts in commonsense language. Extensive commentary is also provided.

This book is designed to be used with Texas Criminal Pattern Jury Charges—General, Evidentiary & Ancillary Instructions, which complements the other volumes in the Criminal Pattern Jury Charges series by providing instructions not specific to a particular crime but that can be used in a wide variety of cases. Also included is a general charge and extensive commentary.

Purchase Texas Criminal Pattern Jury Charges—General, Evidentiary & Ancillary Instructions.

All Texas case and statute citations are linked to Casemaker. Also included is a link to the Texas Constitution and statutes online for easy access to Texas Codes. All charge language is included as MS Word files, linked from the PDF file for quick retrieval and assembly of the jury charge.

“In essence, [the Committee’s charges] reflect the result of careful consideration by a number of persons experienced in criminal litigation as to what conscientious trial judges should seriously consider using in conducting jury trials.”

–George E. Dix, George R. Killam, Jr. Chair of Criminal Law, University of Texas at Austin, and Former Chair, Pattern Jury Charges Committee–Criminal
