Amazon.com description: Product Description: Criminal law rules and procedures, explained in plain English.

The criminal justice system becomes increasingly complex each year as new laws and decisions can change legal standards dramatically. And at a time when even law enforcement is being affected by hiring freezes and budget cuts, the result is fewer resources and public programs for those accused of crimes, and their friends and families. That's why it's crucial that you have access to clear and complete explanations of all aspects of criminal law and procedure.

The Criminal Law Handbook answers your questions about every part of a criminal case, from cops to crooks. Find out everything you've ever wanted to know about how the system works, and the how and why police, lawyers and judges doing what they do. It covers:

  • arrests
  • booking
  • preliminary hearings
  • charges
  • bail
  • courts
  • arraignment
  • search and seizure
  • defenses
  • evidence
  • trials
  • plea bargains
  • sentencing
  • juveniles, and
  • "crimespeak," the language commonly used in criminal statutes.

    The revised 11th edition covers all new Supreme Court rulings, as well as completely updated, meticulously researched changes to case law and new information on domestic violence law.
