Fully updated in this edition, this book covers all aspects of criminal procedure-from first contact to appeal. Written in a conversational style, the first half of the book is devoted to traditional criminal procedure topics and the remainder of the book discusses topics such as the pretrial process, the roles of defense attorneys, prosecutors, and grand juries; plea bargaining and guilty pleas; right of criminal defendants at trial; and appeals and habeas corpus. Each chapter includes decision-making exercises, sample legal forms and excerpts from real police department policy manuals-giving the book real world appeal.
