Abstract

Professor Metze concludes his three part series on professional ethics by addressing eight rules found in the Texas Rules of Professional Conduct as they apply to prosecutors. These rules and the professor’s stinging examples address the following topics: prosecutor as witness, trial publicity, threats of prosecution, unrepresented defendants, uncounseled negotiations with defendants, exculpatory and mitigating evidence, and debriefing a jury.
