Memphis criminal defense attorney Mark Renken was recently chosen as a contributor to this soon-to-be-published book, which is being published by Aspatore Books, a Thomson Reuters imprint. Mark’s chapter is tentatively being called “Helping Juries Keep an Open Mind during Sex Crime Trials.”
“It’s an honor to be included in the 2015 edition of this important and informative book,” said Mark. “My chapter covers the extremely important area of jury selection. The selection process is far more than merely picking who will be on the jury. It is about preparing the jurors for the trial to come, in such a way that they view your client favorably, or at least with an open mind. The mention of sex crime charges can bring out a strong negative visceral reaction in people. It is a serious challenge to overcome that obstacle.”
The Strategies for Defending Sex Crimes series provides an authoritative, insider’s perspective on best practices for representing clients accused of these types of crimes. The series features partners from some of the nation’s leading law firms, and guides readers through the evolving nature of sex crimes in today’s society. Top lawyers, such as Mark, reveal their strategies for planning defensively, keeping abreast of changes and finding creative solutions in this dynamic area of law.
Mark, in the upcoming edition, will also illustrate how to defend a sex crimes case. He covers client relations, negotiation, jury selection, and trial. “A good attorney”, Mark says, “must always keep an open mind and be on the lookout for anything that might advance his or her client’s interests. An attorney might, at the last minute, find something small and unexpected that provides the key to unlock the case.”
