For more than 20 years, Terry Jones began each trial with this opening statement: "Good morning, my name is Terry Jones. I am the Prosecuting Attorney for the 4th Judicial District and in that capacity I represent people of the State of Arkansas."
His memoir is a frank and entertaining insider's look at the American justice system. From the sensational Billie Jean Phillips murder trial, to religious con men, to brutal assault charges, "The cases described here are authentic, although some of the names have been changed to protect the innocent, or the stupid, or because I could not remember who the hell they were."
