Summary "Written for law students, criminal defense attorneys, and criminal prosecuting attorneys, Practical Criminal Procedure, 2nd. ed., provides a comprehensive, yet easily accessible, manual of the constitutional rules of procedure. This pragmatic guide helps practicing lawyers understand complex legal issues in context--as they arise in real-world litigation. Law students can use this guide to get a practical perspective on relevant issues of criminal law. Brent Newton shares his unique perspective as both a practicing attorney and law school professor, examining the major topics in constitutional criminal procedure and including a reference to every significant decision of the United States Supreme Court. He also explores many issues of constitutional procedure not yet addressed by the United States Supreme Court that have been given extensive treatment by lower state and federal courts. A valuable discussion of the rights of criminal defendants and the corresponding obligations of the police and prosecutors is also provided"--Provided by publisher
