Take the mystery out of criminal law! Criminal law can be a maze of conflicting principles, strange jargon, and confusing procedures. Professor Paul Bergman unravels the mysteries with an engaging plain-English style that incorporates real-life examples, famous films, and entertaining hypotheticals. From arraignment through sentencing, from "abuse excuse" to vigilante, this handy desk reference explains it all.
You'll get answers to questions such as:
When can police officers enter your home?
Is cyber-bullying illegal?
Is intoxication ever a criminal defense?
What are the "fruits of the poisonous tree"?
Can the police search your car?
Criminal Law: A Desk Reference will assist students, bloggers, journalists, mystery writers, and anyone else interested in the criminal justice system or law enforcement.
