Easy Guide to the Legal System

Front Cover
AuthorHouse, 2005 - Law - 334 pages
There is right and wrong under law. This book explains the difference. It defines crimes, punishment, good and bad behavior. It tells you how to minimize punishment or extend it. It looks at the court system from a court reporter's view - the best seat in the courtroom, and armed with legal knowledge - always there, and always neutral. Some persons have been seriously harmed, wronged, and/or abused, and find it impossible to conform because they never had a chance to benefit from the laws that protect them. The system goes by tried and true laws and finds a place that's right for the accused - somewhere between rehabilitation and punishment.
