Summary
  • "Criminal law books are usually for lawyers. Not this one. It is the preeminent overview of the criminal justice system for consumers. It's for anyone interested in the criminal justice system, from those personally involved in it to those who simply want to understand it. It's the perfect gift for friends who love CSI and Law & Order, or the popular podcast Serial."
  • This book explains how the system works, why police, lawyers, and judges do what they do, and--most important--the options for suspects, defendants, and victims. It also provides critical information on working with a lawyer
