Criminal Procedure: The Post-Investigative Process, Fifth Edition, is designed to teach the so-called "bail to jail" facets of criminal procedure. It does not concern the constitutional limitations governing search and seizure, identification and interrogation, or the right to counsel. The focus is on those important, and often ignored, stages of the criminal process that start with the decision to pursue criminal charges and end with various post-conviction options.

The book is arranged in a roughly chronological way that traces a criminal defendant's journey through the criminal justice system. It includes important federal and state cases, textual materials (including empirical studies), and parts of applicable rules of procedure.Throughout, Criminal Procedure discusses a number of practical issues, including the often difficult ethical issues facing prosecutors and defense counsel. Because most criminal cases end with a guilty plea, the impact of various stages on the guilty plea is noted throughout the book. 

The authors intersperse problems throughout the book to assist students in understanding and applying the concepts discussed.

The book is supplemented annually, and a Teacher’s Manual is available to professors.

Professors and adjunct professors may request complimentary examination copies of LexisNexis law school publications to consider for class adoption or recommendation. Please identify the book(s) you wish to receive, provide your institutional contact information, and submit your request here.

This book also is available in a heavily discounted, three-hole punched, alternative loose-leaf version printed on 8 ½ x 11 inch paper with wider margins and with the same pagination as the hardbound book.
