Criminal Procedure reflects a balanced blend of conventional casebook style, practice problems, concise text, and sample forms and documents that stresses the interplay of constitutional principles and practical considerations that confront both prosecution and defense attorneys. The organizational structure of previous editions is retained and three major subject areas are explored in depth: • Arrest, Search, and Seizure; • Right to Counsel; and • Confessions The book contains a host of new and quite fascinating materials related to recent decisions from the Supreme Court. Cases involving the construction of the good faith exception to the exclusionary rule, a rethinking of the car search doctrine, reaffirmation of the McNabb / Mallory rule, and numerous others, will contribute to interesting discussions with students. This book is designed to promote a high-quality classroom experience. Lengthy Supreme Court decisions have been substantially edited, although the "flavor" of the constitutional views of the various Justices has been retained. The insertion of sample forms is intended to illustrate the manner in which Supreme Court edict has filtered down to work-a-day law enforcement and prosecution. Problems, for the most part extracted from lower court decisions, serve to demonstrate the vague parameters of Supreme Court pronouncements while providing the student with an engaging and practical approach to understanding, analyzing, and applying the doctrine. This eBook features links to Lexis Advance for further legal research options.

"Compelling, insightful and important, Beneath a Ruthless Sun exposes the corruption of racial bigotry and animus that shadows a community, a state and a nation. A fascinating examination of an injustice story all too familiar and still largely ignored, an engaging and essential read." --Bryan Stevenson, author of Just Mercy From the author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning bestseller Devil in the Grove, the gripping true story of a small town with a big secret. In December 1957, the wife of a Florida citrus baron is raped in her home while her husband is away. She claims a "husky Negro" did it, and the sheriff, the infamous racist Willis McCall, does not hesitate to round up a herd of suspects. But within days, McCall turns his sights on Jesse Daniels, a gentle, mentally impaired white nineteen-year-old. Soon Jesse is railroaded up to the state hospital for the insane, and locked away without trial. But crusading journalist Mabel Norris Reese cannot stop fretting over the case and its baffling outcome. Who was protecting whom, or what? She pursues the story for years, chasing down leads, hitting dead ends, winning unlikely allies. Bit by bit, the unspeakable truths behind a conspiracy that shocked a community into silence begin to surface. Beneath a Ruthless Sun tells a powerful, page-turning story rooted in the fears that rippled through the South as integration began to take hold, sparking a surge of virulent racism that savaged the vulnerable, debased the powerful, and roils our own times still.
