Procedures in the Justice System is a comprehensive guide to criminal procedure, from arrest to sentencing. It 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. It also examines 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. It continues to use actual court cases to show the real implications of the judicial process for enforcers and offenders alike. Additional coverage of the roles and primary duties of prosecutors and state attorneys offers further context for the role of court proceedings in the judicial process.
