Product description

New York Code of Criminal Justice: A Practical Guide is a guide to the criminal statutes in New York. In addition to the full text of the New York Penal Law and Criminal Procedure Law, the book includes plain-language explanations of what the Penal Law statutes mean, with fictional fact patterns that depict the crimes found in the statutes. A practical application of the statutes further illustrate the statutes and offenses. This book is an exceptional tool for lawyers, judges, law students, and police officers.

Preceding each statutory chapter or group of chapters in the penal code is a fictional fact pattern. Following each statute that defines a felony or misdemeanor is a practical application section. These sections draw on the fictional characterizations to explain the statutes. Readers can use the fact patterns and practical applications to understand the language of the statutes and determine how to charge appropriately under them.

Kenneth Del Vecchio is a former judge, former prosecutor, and criminal lawyer who has tried over 400 cases. His other legal books include New Jersey Code of Criminal Justice: A Practical Guide, Test Prep Guide to Accompany New Jersey Code of Criminal Justice, and Code of Criminal Justice: A Practical Guide to the Penal Statutes (National criminal codebook).

A frequent legal analyst on networks such as Fox News Channel, Del Vecchio is the owner of the Criminal Law Learning Center, where he has taught over a thousand police officers and lawyers.
