about this item

This casebook is designed for introductory courses in criminal procedure law, including both investigation and adjudication courses as well as comprehensive and survey courses. The book focuses on constitutional criminal procedure law, but also covers relevant statutes and court rules. The book is designed to be challenging, covering not only contemporary law but also historical roots and theoretical foundations. Emphasis is on the impact of law-in-action, the significance of race and class, and the close relationship between criminal procedure law and substantive criminal law. Sections cover the criminal process, the right to council, the adjudication process, and posttrial proceedings. This edition reflects new laws and litigation, with US Supreme Court and lower court cases and legislative materials current through December 2015. The Fourth and Fifth Amendment chapters have been rewritten to reflect the latest legal, social, and empirical developments in areas such as police discretion and data searches. The chapter on the Jury and Criminal Trial has been revised to include the Crawford doctrine. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
