Summary

Decipher the complexities of our Constitution and the criminal justice system with CONSTITUTIONAL LAW AND THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM. With approximately 225 summarized cases fully integrated into the text, you're introduced to pertinent and influential cases in plain language versus legal language. Harr and Hess focus primarily on the Fourth Amendment (reasonable search and seizure) and Fifth Amendment (double jeopardy, testifying against oneself) to the U.S. Constitution, as these are the most relevant to criminal justice issues.

Author Biography

J. Scott Harr is the chair of the criminal justice department at Concordia University, Saint Paul, Minnesota.
