Those attorneys involved in defending persons accused of committing crimes would no doubt agree that no judge, legislator, governor, or president ever lost his or her job for advocating laws that erode the rights of those accused of committing a crime but, indeed the trend is quite the opposite. How often don’t you hear of someone riding to victory in a local or national election on a “tough on crime” platform?

The trend continues in Texas. Under Texas law (which has been in effect since 1856), “In criminal cases, a client has a privilege to prevent the lawyer or lawyer’s representative from disclosing any other fact which came to the knowledge of the lawyer or the lawyer’s representative by reason of the attorney-client relationship.” It was recently announced that, effective September 1, 2008, this provision will be deleted and, accordingly, only communications between lawyer and client will be protected, as opposed to other information learned by the attorney during the course of the attorney-client relationship.
