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--most important--the options for suspects, defendants, and victims. 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
plea bargains
working with defense attorneys
common defenses
constitutional rights
juvenile court
preliminary hearings
public defenders

This edition is completely updated, covering the latest in criminal law, including U.S. Supreme Court cases.
