Overview

Employing the successful Examples & Explanations format, Examples & Explanations: Criminal Law, draws on well-known cases that have not made the appellate courts or in some cases haven't even gone to litigation. The fifth edition includes cutting edge examples and explanations based on prescription drug-induced sleepwalking, death caused by abuse of time-release pain-killing patches, and void-for-vagueness challenges to laws limiting where sex offenders can live or travel.

Among the attributes that make this study aid an excellent resource:

Unique, time-tested Examples & Explanations pedagogy —Combines textual material with well-written and comprehensive examples, explanations, and questions to test students’ comprehension of the materials and provide practice in applying information to fact patterns.
• The questions, in which there are a variety of issues in one fact situation, are similar to those on a law school or bar examination and therefore provide students with practice they need to excel on exams.
• The author uses well-known cases that have not made the appellate courts or haven't gone to litigation to make the material current and easily applicable.
• Extensive material on new excuses, such as Prozac, Serotonin, Testosterone.
• Recent Supreme Court cases on the insanity defense and the diminished capacity defense (such as Arizona v. Clark and Dixon v. United States).
Explanations include analysis of both prosecution and defense, which provides additional valuable exam-writing skills for students.
Readable and engaging material that often incorporates popular culture and humor to spark interest in students.
Straightforward presentation with clear, introductory text enables students to understand and apply principles.
An abundance of visual aids—Graphs, charts and other illustrations— are used to demonstrate legal standards and concepts.

Updated to reflect recent developments in the news and case law since the last edition, the Fifth Edition offers:

Coverage of the debate on torture, including issues of necessity and whether those who participated in waterboarding may rely on the advice of the office of legal counsel.
The Supreme Court and ex post facto.
Florida self-defense and right-to-carry laws.
2009 Supreme Court decisions on mens rea and the "greater crime" theory.
Update on the "dog maul" case, with explicit examination of the various definitions of malice aforethought given by the California courts
• Examples and explanations that address drive-by shootings and attempted murder.
