Approriate for courses in Criminal Procedure.
Criminal Procedure: From First Contact to Appeal presents an introduction to criminal procedure, from the point at which an individual first comes into contact with the police all the way through the appeals process. Approximately half of the book is devoted to traditional criminal procedure topics–notably, search-and-seizure as well as interrogation and identification procedures. The remainder of the book moves beyond these topics and discusses the pretrial process; the roles of defense attorneys, prosecutors, and grand juries; plea bargaining and guilty pleas; rights of criminal defendants at trial; and appeals and habeas corpus.
Readers who are pursuing careers in criminal justice and individuals who are already employed in criminal justice will find this book especially useful. Moreover, because the book constitutes more than a general overview of criminal procedure, it should prove beneficial to aspiring law students. But, it should not be over the heads of students with little or no background in criminal justice.
