About

Overview

CRIMINAL PROCEDURE FOR THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE PROFESSIONAL, Eleventh Edition, is the most accurate, up-to-date, and readable criminal procedure text available. Authors John N. Ferdico, Henry F. Fradella, and Christopher Totten clarify potentially confusing and obscure legal matters using clear and concise explanations of criminal procedure law and the reasoning behind the law. They translate the complexity of the subject matter into simple, straightforward guidelines and recommendations, illustrated with interesting examples of actual cases. The book's uniquely practical, real-life approach makes it an ideal reference book for current and future criminal justice professionals. From individual rights to arrest, search and seizure, confessions, and pretrial identifications, this best seller provides students with all the information they need to understand the legal rights, duties, and liabilities of law enforcement professionals.

Features and Benefits

  • Each chapter begins with concrete learning objectives and a brief introduction to provide students with specific goals, a clear structure, and a useful context for the concepts to be discussed.
  • The authors don't think criminal justice professionals should have to read and interpret lengthy, complicated court opinions in order to determine the powers, duties, limitations, and liabilities associated with the performance of their jobs. Consequently, the book is written in a clear and concise narrative to make it as understandable as possible.
  • Case excerpts provide authoritative statements of legal principles, explanations of the "reasons behind the rules," and examples of the application of the law to real-life scenarios.
  • Consistent pedagogy aids students in learning and retaining core content. Features include Key Points after each major section of text, which are tied to the chapter-opening Learning Objectives; Discussion Point boxes that promote critical thinking; Criminal Procedure in Action boxes to assist students in putting concepts into practice; and key terms presented in boldface type throughout the text.

What's New

  • In response to suggestions from users, the Eleventh Edition has been reduced in length by 20%, focusing on core course content and salient issues while adding new material on areas of growing importance in criminal procedure.
  • New and updated topics include bail and plea bargaining (Chapter 2); electronic surveillance (Chapter 5); computer forensics, GPS tracking, cell-site data searches, monitoring of social networking sites, and data stored in the computers in motor vehicles (Chapter 5); DNA searches (Chapter 6); and the USA PATRIOT Act and the war on terrorism (Chapter 8).
  • A new Chapter 5 focuses on searches for electronically stored information and electronic surveillance, with coverage of computer forensics, GPS, Facebook, and other cutting-edge technological trends. The chapter also includes discussions of FISA (especially as related to the 2008 amendments to the law and the USA PATRIOT Act), Title III, and the Bush Administration's authorization of NSA wiretapping.
  • A new Chapter 15, "Criminal Trials, Appeals, and Other Post-Conviction Remedies," presents expanded coverage of criminal trials. Previously located in Chapter 2, the text's discussion of the trial process now appears after procedures have been discussed earlier in the book. The new chapter also features coverage of the rules of evidence and streamlined materials on sentencing and corrections.
  • New "Criminal Procedure in Action" boxes make chapter discussions more accessible and relevant to students. Topic examples include Are Strip Searches of Students at Schools Reasonable? (Chapter 6), Police Roadblocks--Are "Safety Checkpoints" Permissible? (Chapter 8), and United States v. Warford, which concerns helicopter surveillance (Chapter 10).
