This text combines criminal law, criminal procedure and the Constitution from a practitioner’s point of view.  Drawing on the author’s vast professional experience, it gives readers what most survey books do not, the ability to analyze criminal justice situations from a legal perspective. Discussion of the Constitution and U.S. Supreme Court decisions are integrated throughout each chapter.
