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 straightforward introduction to criminal procedure combines case excerpts with clear, detailed legal discussion and analysis to give students a solid understanding of the field. The book’s longtime success can be attributed to its widely acclaimed author and his unique ability to help readers grasp the complexities of law by clearly and carefully presenting all sides of an issue. Dr. Samaha has a true passion for wanting students to understand why procedures are as they are--instead of simply memorizing them. As a result, while most Criminal Procedure texts focus exclusively on how to, Samaha combines how and why.

More than most other books about the criminal law, this presentation focuses on "Learning Criminal Law as Advocacy Argument." In each criminal-law topic, it presents in building-block form the limited repertoire of core issues and related arguments so that you can concentrate on learning and practicing those that your professor has stressed in class, in her materials, and on her old exams. You can know the issues on the exam before you go into the exam room.In each criminal-law topic there is a limited repertoire of core issues that must be identified and then resolved with advocacy argument. This pattern of issues and arguments arises from embedded and recurring factual patterns and the resulting criminal law performance of prosecutors, defense lawyers, and trial and appellate judges over decades and even centuries. Your professor presents only some of the core issues and related arguments from these repertoires in her course and on her criminal-law exam. Thus, you can systematically learn the set of core issues and arguments in each topic presented by your and know the issues before you go into the exam room. The exam then presents no surprises.What do you mean by resolving the core issues "with advocacy argument?"Identifying the core issues from your professor?s course is the first critical task. The second critical task is resolving these issues with advocacy argument. Advocacy argument is the lawyer?s single-minded marshalling of the relevant facts and doctrine that are necessary to resolve the identified issues in favor of either the prosecution or defense. This book helps you with both tasks: identifying the exam issues and resolving them.

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.
