For freshman/sophomore-level courses in Criminal Procedures in the Justice System. Written in a clear and direct style that requires no prior knowledge of how or why the justice system operates. This text details the basic elements of criminal procedures in a generic format that can be presented within the context of either a national or a specific state's procedural framework. After an examination of significant procedural concepts and terms, it offers a detailed presentation of criminal procedures in sequential steps--from the point of an individual's first contact with police, through the law enforcement process, the courts, the correctional system, and back into the community on probation or more
