Summary

Procedures in the Justice System, Eighth Edition, provides the readers with a thorough understanding of the American Justice System by explaining the duties and responsibilities of the law enforcement agencies, courts, and correctional departments from the time of arrest through the sentencing of the criminal offenders. The text addresses why we have laws and why those laws are broken, the constitutional rights of the accused, due process concepts, issues involving search and seizure, trial and appellate procedures, sentencing concepts, and victims' rights. Through this in-depth exploration, the reader will gain a deeper understanding of our justice system and the roles that each profession contributes. Book jacket.
