Description

This book describes the formal rules and informal practices involved in the development and resolution of a criminal case, from the decision to charge, to disposition by trial or plea, to sentencing. Analysis of the work of prosecutors and defense attorneys in a hypothetical case helps students to contextualize criminal procedure doctrine by demonstrating the way in which the attorney applies constitutional and statutory law. This book can be used in conjunction with criminal procedure courses using traditional casebooks as well as in skills training courses and prosecution and defense clinics.
