Overview

Mastering Criminal Procedure, Volume 2: The Adjudicatory Stage focuses on the process of a criminal case from the filing of charges against a defendant through the pre-trial and trial stages of the prosecution, and then post-conviction proceedings. This concise guide treats the leading Supreme Court decisions along with a range of statutes and rules that govern the process by which a criminal charge is adjudicated. A number of constitutional protections apply in a prosecution, including the right to a jury trial, confrontation of witnesses, the prohibition on excessive bail, and protection from double jeopardy. A number of procedural rules come into play, including discovery rights, jurisdiction and venue, and post-conviction proceedings, including habeas corpus.

This broad range of topics is explained clearly and succinctly to allow students to master the key concepts and rules related to the adjudication of a criminal prosecution. The authors have experience as prosecutors and defense counsel and have written extensively in the fields of criminal law, criminal procedure, and evidence.
