1 volume.

This book offers a very detailed dissection of a DWI case in Texas and serves as a great reference work for criminal law attorneys. It begins with a look at warrantless stops, roadblocks and sobriety checkpoints, the detention of a suspect, and the collection of evidence such as blood samples and breath tests. It then moves on to pretrial motions and hearings and how to prepare for trial, which includes details on jury selection, jury charges, and the type of evidence that is used in a trial. It ends by looking at the punishment phase and the special case of juvenile offenders. Also included are a table of cases and applicable statutes. A CD-ROM with forms and trial aids is also available.
