Pretrial Motions in Criminal Prosecutions
Select a format
Criminal practice demands that lawyers consider a far-ranging array of pretrial challenges regardless of whether the case is actually tried at some later point. Pretrial Motions in Criminal Prosecutions provides a readable one-volume discussion of critical areas of pretrial motion practice. The book features discussion of issues relating to the myriad of motions that may be brought in a criminal prosecution. A sample omnibus motion is provided to demonstrate how a lawyer can skillfully encompass multiple considerations in a single motion. The book identifies the most salient grounds for pretrial motions, explain the issues that commonly arise, and provide a succinct statement of the governing law. In addition, Pivotal Points are supplied in many sections to conveniently highlight more important aspects of an issue. To ensure the book’s usefulness to lawyers in all jurisdictions, it extensively uses federal case law.
Use the author's first-hand experience to learn about the law of pretrial motions as it is actually interpreted on the streets and in courts of law. Clearly written and comprehensive in scope, Pretrial Motions in Criminal Prosecutions offers expert insight on such issues as motions to suppress, search and seizure, and identification procedures, as well as current guidelines governing specific pretrial motions such as withdrawal of counsel and disqualification of a judge. Extensive case citations illustrate the applications of the law.
