This casebook on criminal procedure uses language that is easily accessible to readers, and 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. Comprehensive in coverage, it 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 anyone seeking an introduction to the law and the courts of the United States judicial system.
