The divergence of the law and the practice has never been as visible in other areas of law as it is in the area of Criminal Procedure. Hence, the title Criminal Procedure: Principles, Rules and Practices. In the first part, the book gives a succinct summary of the ideal procedure should the law be strictly complied with and the (political and economic) challenges in the administration of the criminal justice. For the main part, reproducing the relevant provisions of the law the book discuses the principles and the law on Criminal Procedure comprehensively. Court decisions are reproduced and discussed in order to show the practice and trends in the interpretation and application of the law. The only binding decisions in our legal system are decisions of the House of Federation on matters of constitutional interpretation and the Federal Supreme Court Cassation Division decisions by at least five judges, of which there are very few to refer to. The book approaches Criminal Procedure as a process; thus, it chronologically discusses the steps from crime reporting to the police to prosecution, trial and post judgment remedies. The comments on the law are intertwined with the discussion on the application of the law by the police, the prosecution office and the courts.

In any episode of the popular television show Law and Order, questions of police procedure in collecting evidence often arise. Was a search legal? Was the evidence obtained lawfully? Did the police follow the rules in pursuing their case? While the show depicts fictional cases and scenarios, police procedure with regard to search and seizure is a real and significant issue in the criminal justice system today. The subject of many Supreme Court decisions, they seriously impact the way police pursue their investigations, the way prosecutors proceed with their cases, and the way defense attorneys defend their clients. This book answers these questions and explains these decisions in accessible and easy to follow language. Each chapter explores a separate case or series of cases involving the application of the Fourth Amendment to current police investigatory practices or prosecutorial conduct of the criminal trial. The police-related cases involve topics such as searches of suspects (both prior and incident to arrest), pretext stops, the knock-and-announce rule, interrogation procedures, and the parameters of an individual's reasonable expectation of privacy. The prosecutor-related cases involve topics such as jury selection, the right to counsel, and sentencing. This important overview serves as an introduction to the realities and practicalities of police investigation and the functioning of the criminal justice system when search and seizure becomes an issue.

This is the first book of its kind in the Commonwealth Caribbean on Criminal Procedure. Furthermore it is written by someone who has over twenty years experience in the field: as a prosecutor for over a dozen years, as a magistrate, as a criminologist, a criminal justice consultant and finally as a law school lecturer. This book fills a lacuna in Commonwealth Caribbean jurisprudence in that there is currently no local or regional text on criminal practice and procedure. For too long students and practitioners have had to waste time to wade through English and other text in areas that are not even relevant in order to determine their application to these jurisdictions. The book provides a useful reference to clarify what the state of the statutory law is in the Caribbean when compared to similar areas in English law and to discuss the relevant statute and common law in specific areas. It is a text useful not only for law school students but criminal justice professionals such as lawyers and police officers as well.; The content of the book includes both the statute law and common law on criminal practice and procedure in most of the relevant jurisdictions, which include Trinidad Tobago, Guyana, Barbados, Jamaica and Grenada among others. Where the law is the same or similar in some jurisdictions this is emphasised in the text so as to avoid unnecessary repetition in discussion. Attempts will be made to identify specific differences in the laws of different jurisdictions despite their being many commonalities. Recent developments in these areas are also discussed and the impact of the statutory changes in some countries is assessed

Criminal Procedure: Adjudication and Right to Counsel is for courses on criminal procedure law that focus on the issues pertaining to the adjudication of criminal cases. It is a spin-off of Comprehensive Criminal Procedure, by the same team of authors, which covers both the investigatory and adjudicatory aspects of criminal procedure law. The casebook focuses primarily on constitutional criminal procedure law, but also covers relevant statutes and court rules. It explores not only the contemporary state of the law, but also its historical and theoretical foundations. It incorporates a particular emphasis on empirical knowledge about the real-world impacts of law-in-action; the significance of race and class; the close relationship between criminal procedure law and substantive criminal law; the cold reality that hard choices sometimes must be made in a world of limited criminal justice resources; and, finally, the recognition that criminal procedure law always should strive to achieve both fairness to the accused and justice for society as a whole. New to the 2nd Edition: We have added a wonderful new co-author, Yale Professor Tracey Meares, whose special expertise in the law and policy of police investigations has enriched the casebook tremendously. The Introduction chapter has been updated with a number of new scholarly writings that provide an overview of important aspects of criminal procedure law. The Right to Counsel chapter incorporates the new wave of structural reform litigation over the often-crushing caseloads and frequently inadequate resources of public defender offices; the chapter has also been completely reorganized for clarity and ease of teaching. The Jury and the Criminal Trial chapter has been revised to include the latest developments concerning the Confrontation Clause and the continuing evolution of the Crawford doctrine. The Sentencing chapter has been updated to include the most recent of the Supreme Court's line of Apprendi/Blakely/Booker decisions.
