Summary

This publication covers the law governing the criminal process, excluding sentencing. The first half of the book examines legal strictures on investigative techniques--search and seizure, interrogation, subpoenas, identification procedures and underocover work--and the second half discusses the adjudicatory process, from pretrial detention and the charging decision through preliminary hearings, discovery, plea bargaining, trial, appeal and habeas, as well as double jeopardy doctrine, right to counsel issues, and state constitutional law.This book is popular among students, academics and lawyers for its concise and well-organized statements of the law, its trenchant analysis, and its attention to facts as well as legal doctrine. Each chapter ends with a summary of the law and a bibliography.
