Summary

Instructors who want a comprehensive yet highly focused set of materials for the bail to jail course discovered that this concise casebook achieves specificity without sacrificing quality. With its distinctive focus on multiple kinds of law (constitutional, statutory, executive) and multiple jurisdictions, CRIMINAL PROCEDURES: Prosecution and Adjudication enters its Second Edition as a stronger and absolutely current teaching tool.

The authors continue to keep the casebook both effective and realistic:

  • derived from Miller and Wright s comprehensive criminal procedure book, this shorter volume focuses exclusively on the bail to jail topics
  • extensive use of state high court cases, statutes, rules of procedure, and prosecutorial policies -- in addition to leading U.S. Supreme Court cases -- reveals the full range of the subject
  • by presenting competing rules from the federal and state systems and also occasionally examining procedures from earlier times or from non-U.S. systems, the book offers procedural variety
  • the real-world perspective shows in the focus on procedures and issues of current importance to defendants, lawyers, courts, legislators, and the public
  • careful attention to the political context surrounding different institutions and issues and the impact of public concerns -- such as drug trafficking, domestic abuse, and treatment of crime victims -- on procedural rules helps students gain insight on the evolution of criminal procedures
  • includes an illuminating examination of the impact different procedures have on law enforcers, lawyers, courts, communities, defendants, and victims
  • a detailed Teacher s Manual and separate supporting web sites for students and instructors are available

The Second Edition keeps pace with rapid and significant developments:

  • covers all of the leading U.S. Supreme Court cases in relevant areas, such as sentencing law and the substantive definition of crimes (Apprendi v. New Jersey, Blakely v. Washington, U.S. v. Booker), confrontation (Crawford v. Washington), right to counsel (Alabama v. Shelton), and ex post facto (Stogner v. California)
  • considers the leading recent state court developments, with special attention to state-level variation and leading state supreme court opinions
  • timely consideration of the issues created for American criminal procedure by changes after September 11 in bail and detention, right to counsel, and various trial and sentencing rights
  • treatment of Habeas Corpus
