Description:

When Wendy Murphy was a young prosecutor, she learned that the deck is stacked in favor of criminal defendants. Between their arrest and (potential) conviction, murderers, rapists, and drug dealers get more than a fair shake-they get an unfair advantage, often at the expense of their victims. In many states, for instance, defendants can subpoena a victim's private medical and counseling files without any justification. They can threaten victims with brutal cross-examinations if they dare to testify. They can put on "dog and pony show" defenses that have nothing to do with the truth-and even lie under oath with virtually no risk of being prosecuted for perjury. These kinds of injustices make Murphy fighting mad. She's made it her mission to help the victims who get the least protection from our twisted legal system. And in her first book, she guides readers through one horror story after another about judges and lawyers who bend over backward to let the worst offenders go free. You'll meet judges who unapologetically declare that they care more about their liberal ideology than about the pain and suffering of abuse victims; judges who let child molesters walk free because they're "too frail" to go to prison; defense attorneys who take big money from wealthy child molesters, then twist the Bill of Rights beyond recognition; and even a few prosecutors who go easy on criminals for their own selfish reasons. Murphy's true stories will shock you, but they will also inspire you to join the fight for a more rational system. This is an important book that is sure to infuriate America's legal establishment.
