Description

Fort Worth (Texas) Star-Telegram computer-assisted series gives an overview of crime and the criminal justice system in Fort Worth; shows a shocking annual toll, an understaffed police department, a district attorney's office that set free one of every three criminals, and a court system that heard fewer cases, took longer to hear them and gave lighter sentences than those in Texas' other urban counties; convicts serve, on average, 48 days for every year of their sentence, Aug. 23 - 27, 1992.
