This comprehensive text uses a real world focus to cover all of criminal procedure, from first contact to appeal. Criminal Procedure: From First Contact to Appeal, 5e is a comprehensive introduction to criminal procedure, from first contact with the police, all the way through to appeal. The text is divided into five parts: (1) Introduction; (2) Search and Seizure; (3) Interrogations, Confessions, and Identification Procedures; (4) The Beginnings of Formal Proceedings; and (5) Trial, Conviction, and Beyond. The latter two topics are rarely covered in conventional criminal procedure books, particularly at the level of detail found in this text. This book presupposes no legal expertise, connects criminal procedure cases to the real world through innovative pedagogy, and encourages students through numerous decision making exercises to be critical thinkers by putting them in the position of judge.

This book presents a comprehensive introduction to criminal procedure, thoroughly presenting basic legal concepts and issues in a conversational written style and tone. It provides:

  • Real World Focus: The text contains actual legal documents and excerpts from official policy manuals of police departments and other criminal justice agencies around the United States
  • Clear, up-to-date coverage: Sequentially organized text is laden with the latest court cases and practical examples and illustrations
  • Outstanding Pedagogical Features: Provides students with tools to master key concepts and content
