Beloved Tejano singer Selena Quintanilla Perez is shot and killed in her hometown of Corpus Christi, Texas, and the District Attorney at that time, Carlos Valdez, is the lead prosecutor. In this session, he will share details of the trial as the lead prosecutor in the case and discuss the ethical considerations and rules that court reporters need to adhere to as guardians of the record in a high-profile case. Safeguarding the integrity of the record and exhibits is always important, but when the national media is focusing on the courtroom proceedings, that importance is magnified.Expand summary
