This wide-ranging treatise examines all the complex constitutional issues involved in criminal law. It provides substantive discussion, as well as procedural guidelines on tactics and strategy. The treatise analyzes all important Supreme Court, federal and state decisions interpreting Constitution provisions.

Procedures mandated by the constitution for police, the courts, the prosecution and the defense at each stage of the criminal process are thoroughly scrutinized, with discussions of:

•  Prohibition of unreasonable searches and seizures, including "good faith" exceptions
•  Protection against compulsive self-incrimination and compelled testimony
•  Prohibition against excessive bail
•  Obligations of due process and equal protection
•  Right to counsel, right to a jury trial, and rights of appeal

First published in 1990.
