Jones McClure was kind enough to send me several copies of O’Connor’s Texas Criminal Codes Plus 2008-2009, edited by Mac Secrest, and O’Connor’s Texas Crimes and Consequences, edited by Todd Dupont (of Reasonable Doubt fame) to give away as Defending People schwag.
Mac’s codebook is my briefcase reference of choice: Texas’s Code of Criminal Procedure, Penal Code, Rules of Evidence, Rules of Appellate Procedure, and controlled substances law (as well as some other stuff) in one place with annotations. It doesn’t have the Texas Constitution or the Transportation Code, two other resources that would be helpful day-to-day, but it’s the best I’ve found.
I haven’t used Todd’s book, but it looks handy as well.
So I want to have a contest to give away these books, but I’m not feeling inspired. So suggest a contest in comments; if I use it, I’ll send you a copy of the book of your choice.
