Summary, etc.: The criminal justice system is complicated. Understand it and your rights. Criminal law is full of complex rules and procedures, but this book demystifies them. It explains how the system works, why police, lawyers, and judges do what they do, and―most important―the options for suspects, defendants, and victims. It also provides critical information on working with a lawyer. In plain English, The Criminal Law Handbook covers search and seizure, arrest, booking, Miranda, arraignment, plea bargains, trials, sentencing, working with defense attorneys, common defenses, constitutional rights, juvenile court, preliminary hearings, appeals and public defenders. This edition is completely updated, covering the latest in criminal law, including U.S. Supreme Court cases.
Subject: Criminal law.
Criminal procedure.
