1 Keeping oureyes on the road ahead 2012 Annual Report for the Texas District and County Attorneys Foundation

2 From the Foundation s leadership Bert Graham TDCAF Board Chairman Rob Kepple TDCAF Executive Director Jennifer Vitera TDCAF Development Director We are honored to provide you with the Texas District and County Attorneys Foundation s (TDCAF) 2012 Annual Report, along with our thanks and sincere appreciation for your support. Last year was very busy and exciting for the Foundation. Thank you to Dan Boulware for his outstanding leadership during his two-year term as Board Chairman. We have had an enormous amount of success under Dan s leadership, including $225,000 in pledges (with $80,000 paid on pledges) through the generous donations of our Founding Fellows of the Texas Prosecutors Society. That money will support our endowment. Thank you to all of our donors for a successful six years since the Foundation s inception in 2006; we have raised a more than $2,058,000 in contributions! And with your help and the generosity of our fellow Texans, the Foundation has accomplished the following in 2012: raised more than $145,000; in cooperation with the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) and Anheuser-Busch Companies, Inc., funded our third DWI Summit; funded a three-day seminar in San Antonio targeting the unique role of prosecutors office personnel in combating domestic violence; procured funds from IBC Bank to pay for John Kwasnoski, a renowned crash reconstruction expert, to speak at our Advanced Trial Advocacy Course and to distribute copies of his Little Red Book to all attendees; underwrote the cost of handing out four books to all attendees of our Prosecutor Trial Skills Courses; and defrayed expenses for the Train the Trainer Seminar along with the Advanced Trial Advocacy Course, thus freeing up grant funds to increase reimbursement for hotel expenses for those who attend our other seminars. As you know, The mission of the Texas District and County Attorneys Association is to promote the improvement of prosecution and government representation in the State of Texas by providing educational and technical assistance to prosecutors, their staffs, and law enforcement, and by serving as a legislative resource in criminal law and government representation matters. The Foundation provides enduring support for TDCAA by seeking resources and other assistance from all sources, including the community at large. The Foundation is led by the Board of Trustees composed of the TDCAA leadership and other public members elected by the TDCAA Board of Directors. The Foundation is also guided by its volunteer Advisory Committee. Again, thank you to TDCAA members, TDCAA s Board of Directors, and TDCAF s Board of Trustees and Advisory Committee for their continued support. Please check out our website at for updates and partnership opportunities.

3 What is TDCAF? The Texas District and County Attorneys Foundation (TDCAF) was created in 2006 as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. Its sole purpose is to financially support the educational mission of the Texas District and County Attorneys Association (TDCAA). TDCAA is the professional association for Texas prosecutors. Our 5,819 members include prosecutors, investigators, support staff, defense attorneys, judges, and law students. A key to achieving justice for crime victims and society at large is a welltrained cadre of professional prosecutors and support staff. Without effective advocates, our children, crime victims, and the general public will not get the justice they deserve. Lawyers and peace officers, like many professionals, require continuing education hours every year to keep their licenses, and we provide that training at more than 40 annual conferences. Some of them are geared toward prosecutors right out of law school, while others target elected district and county attorneys. Two seminars per year are on specialty topics, OK, then what is TDCAA? Why we formed the Foundation As TDCAA membership has grown, grant funding has not kept pace. In fact, grant funds have been cut by $146,250 since FY Plus, prosecutors offices contend with 20 percent attrition annually, which requires a continued effort to train new attorneys and staff. The Foundation, created to address this financial gap, provides 6 percent of TDCAA s funding, but we need more help to maintain the number and quality of our services. such as crimes against children and capital murder, while others cater to investigators, support staff, and those who want to delve deeper into trial and appellate advocacy. In 2012, we also trained about 1,960 peace officers and prosecutors on driving while intoxicated (DWI) and other intoxication offenses. A great portion of these seminars are funded by government grants. There is also a private side to our business. We sell more than 20 books on various areas of criminal law and publish the first copies of the Penal Code and Code of Criminal Procedure after the biennial legislature updates the statutes. These manuals are invaluable to our members, who use them to learn about legal changes, new appellate court decisions, and courtroom strategies from their peers all over the state.

4 What the Foundation does We support TDCAA by funding staff and training in these areas: Domestic Violence Domestic violences cases are among the hardest to prosecute because the crime occurs between family members, and the victims often recant their stories once the trauma of the assault has passed. Despite a victim s reluctance (or refusal) to testify, prosecutors have a vested interest in trying these cases to protect the victims, especially children, who are scared of their perpetrators. In April 2012 TDCAA hosted a threeday course targeting the unique role of prosecutors office personnel in combating domestic violence so they can more compassionately and effectively provide assistance and information to domestic violence victims. The Foundation, along with generous sponsors, also underwrote the cost of writing, publishing, and distributing the Family Violence Resource Notebook, which was sent to every victim assistance coordinator in Texas. Prosecutor Trial Skills Courses This course, which we affectionately call Baby School because it is designed for brand-new prosecutors, is produced twice a year. It is an intensive, faculty-driven course that requires new prosecutors to work at developing basic courtroom skills in a week of drills and guided discussions. Hand-picked, expert faculty teach these new prosecutors everything from the nuts and bolts of jury selection and technology in the courtroom to how to effectively prosecute domestic violence cases, just to name a few. Also, each attendee is given four books free of charge! underwritten by the Foundation. Advanced Prosecutor Training To fight for victims of crime, prosecutors must be prepared to be at their best in the courtroom. To this end, and through a gift from the Harris County District Attorney s Office, the Foundation can sustain two critical TDCAA courses. Train the Trainer. Since 2008, the Texas District and County Attorneys Foundation has fully funded the food, lodging, and training for attendees so that people can attend at no cost to their offices. Highly qualified faculty teach prosecutors, investigators, and staff the principles of adult learning techniques so they can give more effective oral presentations, whether to a room of their peers or to a jury panel. Attendance at this course is by invite only and is limited to 30 participants so that each attendee can receive personalized attention and help. Because TDCAA has a number of courses that require experienced faculty, we are always on the lookout for prospective speakers with the expertise and talent to teach others. Train the Trainer has become an excellent farm system for such instructors. Advanced Advocacy Courses. The second Foundation-funded TDCAA training is the Advanced Advocacy Course, in which seasoned prosecutors further their skills in an intensive, week-long session at Baylor School of Law in Waco. It is designed for the prosecutor with at least three to five years of trial experience. Through presentations, demonstrations, and directed workshops in real courtrooms, experienced faculty guide participants through detailed felony case scenarios addressing many challenges that arise in their work as experienced prosecutors. In 2012, the Foundation secured funding from IBC Bank to pay for John Kwas-

5 noski (on the right in the photo, below, with W. Clay Abbott, TDCAA s DWI Resource Prosecutor, at left), a well-known crash reconstruction expert, to speak at the seminar. The money also paid for copies of his Little Red Book to be distributed to attendees. TDCAA offers both trial advocacy and appellate advocacy so that all prosecutors can enrich their skills. These Advanced Advocacy Courses are limited to 40 hand-selected students and fully funded by the Foundation so there is no cost to individuals or their offices. Both courses are manpower- and resource- intensive, and support from the Foundation is critical. W. Clay Abbott & John Kwasnoski Victim Services The Foundation underwrites our Victim Services Director position, to improve legislatively mandated but largely unfunded crime victim services in prosecutor s offices. The Victim Services Director is responsible for technical assistance to prosecutors and staff on issues ranging from urgent questions and John Stride pending cases to grant opportunities, training, caselaw, and program implementation. Appellate Assistance Appellate prosecutors handle all sorts of appeals, from misdemeanors to death penalty cases. These prosecutors go before the appellate courts to argue issues that require a great breadth of knowledge, both legal and institutional. Your gift to the Foundation supports our senior appellate attorney, John Stride (pictured at bottom) whose contributions over the past year have been invaluable. In 2012, John answered numerous criminal trial and appellate questions; contributed several articles to our criminal law journal, The Texas Prosecutor; co-wrote the case summaries, a weekly caselaw update ed to about 2,000 subscribers; organized a sub-committee preparing updates for first two volumes of the Texas Criminal Pattern Jury Charges; co-wrote and graded the 2012 Criminal Appellate Law exam for the Texas Board of Legal Specialization; spoke about findings of fact and conclusions of law to state trial and appellate judges at the Texas Center for the Judiciary; assisted with four one-day regional updates in Plainview, San, Angelo, Bryan/College Station, and Tyler; attended a multi-day meeting of four state prosecuting training organizations discussing current issues facing prosecutors hosted in Little Rock, Arkansas; and attended Emerging Issues committee meetings and performed research for Setting the Record Straight on Prosecutorial Misconduct, TDCAA s report on claims of widespread prosecutorial misconduct. In short, the Foundation supports TDCAA s mission to assist Texas prosecutors and their allied professionals achieve their goal of a safe Texas.

6 Founding Fellows program In 2011, under the direction of Board Chairman, Dan Boulware, and Endowment Chair, Tom Krampitz, the Foundation kicked off its campaign to establish a select group of supporters we call the Texas Prosecutors Society. To inaugurate this new society, we hand-selected 106 prosecutors and alumni from across the state to be its Founding Fellows. (The number 106 signifies the number of years TDCAA has been in existence.) This invitation is for those current or former prosecutors who are in good standing with the Association and who have exemplified the highest standards of professionalism. Every year, TDCAF invites 50 new members to the Texas Prosecutors Society; they are selected by a nominations committee from the TDCAF and TDCAA Boards. These members of the Texas Prosecutors Society have pledged $250 per year for 10 years (or $2,500 upfront) to create an endowment fund for the Foundation a forward-thinking strategy for building stability and growth for both the Foundation and the Association. The endowment s purpose is to collect and invest funds for the future to provide critical support to the Association. County budgets, like all government offices, are tight, and the Foundation wants to assist our members in any way we can to get them the training they deserve. The members we serve are our greatest assets. As a not-forprofit organization, TDCAF depends on charitable contributions such as those received through the Fellows program so we can continue providing training for our prosecutors and their staffs and making Texas a safer place safer for all Texans. The new inductees of the Texas Prosecutors Society will be recognized at TDCAA s Annual Criminal & Civil Law Update every September and with a special cocktail reception at our Elected Prosecutor Conference in December. We d like to honor our Founding Fellows by recognizing them here: Founding Fellows (as of January 31, 2013) Richard B. Alpert Bernard W. Ammerman Gordon V. Armstrong Eduardo Arredondo Patrick C.
