CRIMINAL PROCEDURE FOR THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE PROFESSIONAL, Twelfth 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.
- Many new U.S. Supreme Court decisions have been added throughout text. These include Hall v. Florida, which concerns capital punishment for persons with an intellectual disability (Ch. 1); Riley v. California, which considers whether warrants are required before police can search cell phones (Ch. 7); and Arizona v. United States, which addresses racial profiling and the "show me your papers" laws (Ch. 8).
- Chapter 3, "Basic Underlying Concepts: Privacy, Probable Cause, and Reasonableness," presents new content on the dual property and privacy approaches to the Fourth Amendment in light of the U.S. Supreme Court's decision in United States v. Jones. Discussion of this case is also integrated into Chapter 5, "Searches for Electronically Stored Information and Electronic Surveillance."
- Chapter 4, "Criminal Investigatory Search Warrants," includes a new section on the variable times required to obtain a search warrant.
- A significant decrease in the number of key terms makes the material more accessible.
- This edition is updated with citations to (and often discussions of) the latest case law on each topic in the text.
- Additional tables and a greater number of bulleted and numbered lists increase readability and students' mastery of the content.
- Pedagogy helps students learn and retain core content. Features include: Key Points after each major section, tied to chapter-opening Learning Objectives; Discussion Point boxes that promote critical thinking; Criminal Procedure in Action boxes to assist students in putting concepts into practice; Supreme Court Nuggets (quotations from court opinions) to familiarize students with judicial language and to highlight authoritative definitions of terms; key terms presented in boldface type and compiled at the end of each chapter; and Review and Discussion Questions that encourage critical thinking.
- Each chapter begins with numbered 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.
