Criminal Law: A Desk Reference by Paul Bergman

Take the mystery out of criminal law

Criminal law can be a maze of conflicting principles, strange jargon, and confusing procedures. Professor Paul Bergman unravels the mysteries with an engaging plain-English style that incorporates real-life examples, famous films, and entertaining hypotheticals. From arraignment through sentencing, from "abuse excuse" to vigilante, this handy desk reference explains it all.

You'll get answers to questions such as:

  • When can police officers enter your home?

  • Is cyber-bullying illegal?

  • Is intoxication ever a criminal defense?

  • What are the "fruits of the poisonous tree"?

  • Can the police search your car?

    Criminal Law: A Desk Referencewill assist students, bloggers, journalists, mystery writers, and anyone else interested in the criminal justice system or law enforcement.

    Paul Bergman is a UCLA Professor of Law and the author or coauthor of many books, including Represent Yourself in Court and The Criminal Law Handbook, both published by Nolo.
