Criminal Procedure: Prosecuting Crime
This law school casebook provides different perspectives to fundamental doctrinal issues related to the law of criminal procedure rules relating to prosecutions. The authors review pretrial release, case screening, preparing for adjudication, the role of counsel, plea bargaining, guilty pleas, the trial process, sentencing, double jeopardy, and correcting erroneous verdicts. This book is a complete, unchanged reprint of Chapter 1 and Chapters 11-19 of Dressler & Thomas' Criminal Procedure: Principles, Policies and Perspectives. The pagination is the same in this book as it is in the original title.
