Criminal procedure: cases and comments
Foundation Press, Jul 20, 2008 - Law - 2044 pages
As with prior editions, the casebook begins with a treatment of limitations of law enforcement investigative procedures. And also, like prior editions, the authors stress the newer decisions, with reliance upon summaries of older decisions to trace the development of the law in various areas. Materials related to problems in the context of criminal procedure are provided to remind the student that criminal procedure does not begin and end with police conduct and pre-trial motions. Every chapter has been revised, updated, and contracted or expanded as the law has developed. Topics covered include expert review of the limitations upon law enforcement practices and procedures, confessions and interrogations, and eyewitness identification procedures. The casebook examines surveillance, law of arrest, and search and seizure. It identifies exlusionary principles and alternative remedies for unlawful investigative practices, as well as limits of undercover work. There is an overview of judicial process, including grand jury proceedings, right to bail, pre-trial motions, and competency to stand trial. The casebook also covers disclosure and discovery, trial by jury, presenting the case, sentencing, and appellate and other post-trial remedies.
