Inmate Gift Packs

We receive an overwhelming number of requests from inmates for books, and we have given inmates more than 500 books. We will continue to give away books as we are able, but the cost of books along with the cost of postage has simply made it impossible for us to send books to every inmate who requests them. We, therefore, welcome your support in helping us provide books to inmates with three options.

  1. Books for Your Chosen Inmate
  2. Books for Your Chosen Inmate and Donate to an Inmate
  3. Donate Books to an Inmate

About the Books

California Criminal Defense Motions in Limine, Third Edition

Motions in limine for use in California criminal trials. This edition is more than 50% longer than the last edition and contains more than 250 motions. Trials are often won or lost before the first witness is sworn. Motions in limine are used to keep bad evidence out of a trial, bring good evidence into a trial, and control the atmosphere and order of a trial. A great advantage of such motions is to avoid the obviously futile attempt to “unring the bell” after the jury has already heard bad evidence and been instructed to disregard it.

Handbook for the Accused

A person accused of a crime in California often faces three prosecutors: the district attorney, the court, and his own attorney. Heavy caseloads and too few resources force many attorneys to seek quick plea bargains with little interest in actually defending their clients. This guide is meant to help the accused avoid becoming a victim of the California Plea Machine by teaching how to help your attorney help you prepare a defense instead of simply preparing to plead guilty. This edition contains new sections about Bail and about Immigration Consequences. The book also contains sample pleadings by some of the best criminal defense attorneys.
