Overview

Highly regarded for its engaging writing style, as well as its comprehensive coverage, Criminal Procedures: Cases, Statutes, and Executive Materials, Third Edition, continues to offer a first-rate selection of well-edited cases and materials accompanied by exceptionally helpful notes and introductory materials.

Among the features that have made this casebook successful with students and instructors alike:

• utilizes traditional organization and coverage while demonstrating the progression from classic federal cases to significant state cases
• along with the essential cases of historical value, the authors include cases chosen for their contemporary accuracy and appeal and meticulously edit them and accompanying materials with a special focus on "teachable chunks"
• a rich selection of materials from diverse institutions — including primary materials from U.S. Supreme Court cases, state high court cases, statutes, rules of procedure, and police and prosecutorial policies as well as from social science studies — highlight procedural variety, focus on real process topics, provide the political context, and consider the impact of procedures on the various parties involved
• the scholarly expertise of the authors, especially reflected in the Criminal Procedure II materials, including coverage of prosecutorial charging, plea bargaining, and sentencing
• for each topic the authors summarize the majority and minority views of the states as well as the federal view

The authors are highly accessible, and they provide:

• an outstanding Teacher's Manual with chapter overviews, suggestions for pacing, teaching strategies, and sample syllabi
• a password-protected website for teachers, www.crimpro.net providing an electronic version of the teacher's manual and other teaching materials
• a separate website for students, www.crimpro.com, providing practice problems, sample exams, articles, and a virtual library

Fully updated, the Third Edition presents:

• greater emphasis on the role of the U.S. Supreme Court in many areas of criminal procedure (e.g., in regulating police practices in investigation and arrest), and includes nearly twice as many Supreme Court cases in Part I
• updated surveys of state law tendencies, particularly the surveys contained in the well-received majority position notes
• current, appropriate examples illustrating statutes that have been amended since the last edition
• new material on the impact of the War on Terrorism on criminal prosecutions
• expanded coverage of immigration issues
