The first part of this book is devoted to traditional criminal procedure topics, including search and seizure as well as interrogation and identification procedures. Recognizing that criminal procedure consists of much more than interactions between the police and criminal suspects, Worrall goes on to discuss the pretrial process; the roles of defense attorneys, prosecutors, and grand juries; plea bargaining and guilty pleas; rights of criminal defendants at trial; and appeals and habeas corpus. The material is covered by focusing on the constitutional rights of criminal suspects, as interpreted by the U.S. Supreme Court.
