From arrest to sentencing: A comprehensive guide to criminal procedure
Procedures in the Justice System presents the judicial procedures of criminal cases in plain language and a concise format suitable for a one-semester course. In addition to detailing legal rules, it considers why we have laws and why those laws are broken, the constitutional rights of the accused, and the philosophy of correctional endeavors. The 12th edition has new content on victim impact statements and expanded discussion of legal procedures, while continuing to use actual court cases to show the real implications of the judicial process for enforcers and offenders alike.
