Overview

The seventh edition of Criminal Evidence presents the basic concepts of criminal evidence applied in the criminal justice environment. The text includes a description of the trial process, types of evidence, the rules relating to relevance, hearsay (including the Confrontation Clause), documentary evidence, qualification of witnesses, privileges, presumptions, judicial notice, photographs, and character. The text also presents the principles relating to the impact of the Constitution of the United States on the admissibility of evidence (i.e. search and seizure, admissions and confessions, the right to counsel, identification procedures), and principles relating to the law enforcement professional as a witness. It is written in a clear, lively, and personal style to appeal to criminal justice professionals and students on the way to becoming professionals.
