Description

This book is tailor made for a class on the criminal adjudication process, covering all essential post-investigation steps, from “bail to jail”. Because the book includes an overview of the criminal process and comprehensive treatment of the right to counsel, it is easily adaptable, permitting teachers to use it for a stand-alone course on criminal prosecutions, a second criminal procedure course to follow a class on police practices and investigations, or an introductory criminal procedure course that students may take before taking a class on the investigative phases. The chapters provide in depth coverage of developing law, often incorporating the latest empirical information, state law trends, ethical rules, and policy debates.

Topics include:
  • pretrial detention and release
  • the charging decision
  • preliminary hearing and grand jury review,
  • discovery and disclosure,
  • plea bargaining,
  • trial,
  • double jeopardy,
  • sentencing,
  • appellate and post-conviction review
