Criminal Procedure Today: Issues and Cases
Using language that is easily accessible to non-attorneys, this innovative introduction to criminal procedure combines both the "black letter" law approach and the case approach by beginning each chapter with a discussion of the law, followed by significant cases (carefully edited and abridged) in that area. It features a unique three-question strategy for determining applicability, compliance with, and sanctions regarding the Fourth Amendment. Explores criminal procedure in relation to the courts; the justice system; the Fourth Amendment; Fourth Amendment exceptions; interrogation, confessions, and admissions; remedies; identification; pretrial proceedings; counsel; grand jury, charging decision and speedy trial; and punishment. For law enforcement professionals, workers in the criminal justice system, and lay persons interested in criminal procedure.
