The Handbook on West Virginia Criminal Procedure serves as a complete, comprehensive criminal sourcebook of the constitutional principles and practical considerations routinely confronted by both prosecutors and defense counsel in criminal trials. Every major area of criminal procedure is examined, including:
• Right to counsel
• Search and seizure
• Pretrial identification
• Jurisdiction and venue
• Preliminary hearings
• Grand jury and indictments
• Guilty pleas
• Insanity and mental competency
• Instructions to the jury
• Post-trial motions
• Parole and pardon
• Contempt of court
• Juvenile rights and procedure
Nearly all relevant decisions of the U.S. Supreme Court, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, and the West Virginia Court of Appeals are examined along with expert case law and statutory analysis. A numbered conclusion section at the end of each chapter is also provided for easy reference. A new Third Edition of the Handbook on West Virginia Criminal Procedure was released in August 2016. Beginning with a new loose-leaf format, separate cumulative supplements will no longer be published. To improve ease of use, annual revisions and updates will now be integrated into the main text.
Format: 2 volumes (binders), loose-leaf. Updated annually.
