Problems and ChallengesCharles and Vanessa reunited

Prisoners facing capital charges, Death Row, or Life Without Parole need legal, financial, and community assistance to counter negative forces marshaled against them. Many need their family and friends to have a better understanding of their cases. This training will identify the problems and challenges families and loved ones of death row prisoners face, and provide them with critical skills, knowledge, and information.

The Capital Defense Handbook for Defendants

The Capital Defense Handbook for Defendants and their Families is an easy to read guide that provides practical information to capital case defendants, prisoners, and family members who are navigating the criminal justice system. The Handbook is an invaluable resource for those who want to understand their legal rights, interact effectively with lawyers, and participate in defense of their own lives or in the defense of their loved ones.

Model Case Summary & Chart

One part of the Handbook demonstrates how to write a Model Case Summary and Chart. Few prisoners, or their families, know how to summarize a case so that helpful lawyers or advocates reviewing the case can comprehend the main points easily. Typically, prisoners send out volumes of information and no one ever looks at them because it is unclear and overwhelming. The section on Case Summary will help prisoners and/or family members to advocate effectively, detail key issues, and summarize court decisions in a clear, concise manner that persuades a lawyer or advocate to get involved in the case.
