Criminal Procedure: From First Contact to Appeal, 2/E
John L. Worrall, California State University, San Bernardino
This text is a comprehensive introduction to criminal procedure, from the point where individuals first come into contact with the police, all the way through to appeal. For the second edition, this text is updated through the 2005-2006 Supreme Court terms, which will assist students and instructors in identifying and learning the most recent Supreme Court decisions in the area of criminal procedure.
Reviewers are praising Worrall’s Criminal Procedure [remove underline; italics only] as an exciting text both for themselves and their students.
“The book does an excellent job of covering the material,” writes one reviewer. “It covers areas rarely covered in a typical procedure text such as issues of mental competency. In addition, it answers the questions that professors consistently get from their students.”
Another reviewer calls the Worrall text “an incredible improvement over [other criminal procedure texts].”
