Now in its sixth edition, California Criminal Discovery is a necessity for any California practitioner who deals with criminal discovery issues. Originally authored by a seasoned prosecutor and a criminal defense specialist, California Criminal Discovery covers virtually every criminal discovery topic that's likely to confront the courts and the criminal practitioner.

A convenient one volume publication, this practical handbook emphasizes methods by which prosecutors and criminal defense attorneys can fully comply with discovery obligations. The easy-to-use table of contents, logical and detailed chapter headings, and complete index offer clear guidance through the procedural morass of duties and exceptions.

Text contains complete discussion of the laws governing:

•  Constitutional underpinnings of criminal discovery of Brady exculpatory evidence
•  Discovery from the prosecution under the Criminal Discovery Statute
•  Reciprocal discovery from the defense under the Criminal Discovery Statute
•  Sanctions for discovery violations and of informant identities
•  Discovery of confidential official information
•  Discovery of peace officer personnel records
•  Discovery from third parties
•  Discovery implications of lost, destroyed and uncollected evidence
