Mistrial book cover

Leading defense attorneys Mark Geragos and Pat Harris co-author, "Mistrial An Inside Look at How the Criminal Justice System Works...and Sometimes Doesn't"

Defense attorney Mark Geragos has tried approximately 300 cases, including representing celebrities Michael Jackson, Chris Brown, Winona Ryder, and Mike Tyson. In his new book with Pat Harris, "Mistrial An Inside Look at How the Criminal Justice System Works...and Sometimes Doesn't," the two lawyers make a case that the criminal justice system is failing.

The book provides an inside look at lies, bribes, and injustice in the American court system and how everyone from jurors to judges can be corrupted. 

Geragos joins AirTalk to weigh in on the OJ Simpson trial and the Jackson's family lawsuit to AEG. 

How easily is our perception of the truth changed? What should be reformed in the criminal justice system? What should you consider as a juror? What about as a defendant?

Guest:
Mark Geragos, criminal defense attorney, legal analyst, and co-author of "Mistrial An Inside Look at How the Criminal Justice System Works...and Sometimes Doesn't"

Mark Geragos will be doing a book signing at Book Soup in Hollywood this Sunday at noon. Click here for further details.
