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 what suspects, defendants, and prisoners can expect. It also provides critical information on working with a lawyer.
In plain English, The Criminal Law Handbook covers:
search and seizure
arrest, booking, and bail
working with defense attorneys
appeals, and public defenders
This edition is completely updated, covering the latest Supreme Court rulings.
