Prosecution Stories

by Bennett L. Gershman

Forthcoming December 2017 $26.95 302 pp paper

Tags: Criminal Law, Twelve Tables Press


This book doesn’t try to glamorize or demonize prosecutors; the cases, anecdotes, and experiences speak for themselves. Prosecution Stories shows emphatically that the prosecutor is the most powerful official in American government. As a former prosecutor, the book is written in an attempt to help anyone interested in criminal law understand how the prosecutor uses, and misuses, this extraordinary power to convict wrongdoers and vindicate the criminal law system.

These stories illuminate the many roles that prosecutors play, well beyond the familiar charging, plea bargaining, and litigation functions. In the end, the author's hope is that these stories may contribute to a better understanding of the prosecutor as a special guardian of justice. 

Twelve Tables Press is an alliance partner of Carolina Academic Press offering legal history trade and education titles for inside and outside the classroom.
