The 1999 version of “The Criminal Defendant’s Bible” is no longer being published. The author, Michael H. Brown revised the book in 2015. The book will now be two separate books.
This book, Part One (Volume One) teaches Pre-Trial legal strategies. While this book is 500 pages it contains copies of actual court documents. In order to avoid confusion, the page numbers of the book have brackets around them. The court documents have their original numbering on them and do not have a book page number on them.
Part Two (Volume Two) will be published in 2016. It will Teach You How To Draft An Appeal, Write A Reply Brief, File A Petition For Habeas Corpus (28 U.S.C. § 2241 to 2255) And A Petition For Writ Of Error Coram Nobis (the petition you file to overturn a conviction after you have served all your time).
Please note: There are 2 printing errors with this book.
