Take the mystery out of criminal law Criminal law can be a maze of conflicting principles, strange jargon, and confusing procedures. Professor Paul Bergman unravels the mysteries with an engaging plain-English style that incorporates real-life examples, famous films, and entertaining hypotheticals. From arraignment through sentencing, from "abuse excuse" to vigilante, this handy desk reference explains it all. You'll get answers to questions such as: When can police officers enter your home? Is cyber-bullying illegal? Is intoxication ever a criminal defense? What are the "fruits of the poisonous tree"? Can the police search your car? Criminal Law: A Desk Referencewill assist students, bloggers, journalists, mystery writers, and anyone else interested in the criminal justice system or law enforcement. Paul Bergman is a UCLA Professor of Law and the author or coauthor of many books, including Represent Yourself in Court and The Criminal Law Handbook, both published by Nolo.
