Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I find that the text provides a balanced and detailed treatment of criminal law and criminal procedure. The organization of the material is logical and proceeds for the general basis of the law, to the general basis of criminal law to the specifics of criminal elements and specific crimes. The treatment of criminal procedure from the participants through criminal investigation, trial and finally appeal and sentencing is balanced and well thought out."
