Updates to Criminal Pattern Jury Instructions
The Tennessee Judicial Conference's TPI Criminal Committee updated/created several instructions following West's publication of the 18th Edition of the pattern jury instructions. The AOC's memorandum (updated January 2015) explains the changes and includes a "with comments and footnotes" version of the instructions which are completely new or substantially revised. A Word and WordPerfect "without comments and footnotes" version of every new/amended instruction is posted below. If the Committee changed the text of a footnote and/or comment but did not change the text of the instruction, the change(s) will be explained in the AOC's memorandum, but a copy of the instruction will not be posted below.
