By Cliff Roberson, Harvey Wallace

Published by Prentice Hall

Published Date: Jan 5, 2012

Description

Procedures in the Justice System, 10e, is comprehensive yet readable. Designed for one-semester courses on American criminal courts, it covers the court systems and processes using a sequential approach—following law violators from arrest to conviction and sentencing. Each chapter examines the roles that law enforcement agencies, courts, and correctional departments play in the process, and builds logically on previous material. Down-to-earth examples, illustrations, court documents, and cases help make procedures more real and concrete.
