Written for law students, criminal defense attorneys, and criminal prosecuting attorneys, Practical Criminal Procedure helps legal professionals understand complex criminal legal issues in context and how legal issues commonly arise in real-world litigation.

This pragmatic guide by Brent Newton examines the major topics in constitutional criminal procedure and includes a reference to every significant decision of the United States Supreme Court that affects them. This text also addresses 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.

The third edition includes practical analysis of many new Supreme Court decisions that significantly have changed many aspects of constitutional criminal procedure, including:

  • Fourth Amendment cases, including United States v. Jones (2012), Jardines v. Florida (2013), and Riley v. California (2014);  
  • Confrontation Clause cases, including Ohio v. Clark (2015);
  • cases addressing the rights to an impartial judge and jury, including Williams v. Pennsylvania (2016) and Pena-Rodriguez v. Colorado (2017);
  • ineffective assistance of counsel cases, including Lafler v. Cooper (2012) and Missouri v. Frye (2012);
  • sentencing cases, including Alleyne v. United States (2013); and
  • federal habeas corpus cases, including Martinez v. Ryan (2012).
