Out Of Print - Last Edition
As in previous editions, this book provides a lucid, detailed and straightforward account of the procedure to be followed in criminal cases. Proceedings are described in chronological order, from the detection and arrest of an offender to sentence and appeal, both for indictable offences and for summary offences.

In this new edition the preliminary stages of a prosecution have been dealt with in more detail, and in particular the chapters covering police investigation and the gathering of prosecution evidence have been expanded. Developments in case law and the major changes made by the Criminal Law Act 1977 have been incorporated. The 1981 Report of the Royal Commission on Criminal Procedure is fully considered in an Appendix.

Criminal procedure involves many areas of fundamental significance to the individual and to the State, and its importance has gained increasing public recognition. Hampton provides a text that is both readable and comprehensive for students, practising lawyers and the police.
