Описание: The American legal system changed dramatically when the O. J. Simpson trial became a television-ratings bonanza. Now its all crime, all the time, from tabloid news to police procedurals. Americans now know more about the criminal justice system than ever before. Or do they?

In Mistrial, Mark Geragos and Pat Harris argue precisely the opposite: In pursuit of sensationalism, the public sees only a small, distorted sample of what really happens in our courtrooms. Geragos and Harris debunk the myth of impartial American justice--from stealth jurors who secretly swing for a conviction to cops who regularly lie on the witness stand. Ultimately, the authors question whether a justice system model drawn up two centuries ago is still viable today.

Geragos and Harris are legal experts and prominent criminal defense attorneys who have worked on everything from celebrity media circuses to equally compelling cases defending individuals desperate to avoid the spotlight. Mistrial gives a behind-the-scenes peek that reveals their most fascinating cases, enthralling legal eagles and armchair litigators alike--as it blows the lid off what really happens in a courtroom.

Описание: A searing manifesto on the ills of the criminal justice system from two of America's most prominent defense attorneys.The American legal system changed dramatically in 1994, when the O. J. Simpson trial became a television-ratings bonanza. Now it's all crime, all the time, on TV, from tabloid news to police procedurals on every network. Americans know more about the criminal justice system than ever before. Or do they?
In "Mistrial," Mark Geragos and Pat Harris argue precisely the opposite: In pursuit of sensationalism, the media shows the public only a small, distorted sample of what really happens in our courtrooms. So, ironically, the more the public thinks it knows, the less informed it really is.
"Mistrial" debunks the myth of impartial American justice and draws the curtain on its ugly realities--from stealth jurors who secretly swing for a conviction to cops who regularly lie on the witness stand to defense attorneys terrified of going to trial. Ultimately, the authors question whether a justice system model drawn up two centuries before blogs, television, and O. J. Simpson is still viable today.
In the aftermath of the Casey Anthony trial, the flaws in America's justice system are more glaring than ever. Geragos and Harris are legal experts and prominent criminal defense attorneys who have worked on everything from celebrity media-circuses to equally compelling cases defending individuals desperate to avoid the spotlight, and "Mistrial"'s behind-the-scenes peek at their most fascinating cases will enthrall legal eagles and armchair litigators alike--as it blows the lid on what really happens in a courtroom.
