The Illustrated Guide to Criminal Procedure, Vol I: Parts 1-3, Including the Fourth Amendment Flowchart
by Nathaniel Burney
Publisher: CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform
Edition: 1 - 2014
In this second book from his popular "Illustrated Guide to Law" web series, Nathaniel Burney sets out to explain the law of Criminal Procedure in comics. Where the first book on Criminal Law focused on what *you* are allowed to do, this volume begins the discussion of what the *police* are allowed to do. Starting with the absolute basics (what is criminal procedure?), the reader is soon immersed in the exclusionary rule, the tricks of the Fourth Amendment and the traps of the Fifth. Along the way, there are deep discussions of policy explaining why the law is this way, and legal history explaining how it got like that. Volume I contains the first three chapters: "So What?" "Meet the Players" and "Police vs. Privacy," and also includes a sixteen-foot-long Fourth Amendment Flowchart to cut out and stick on your wall. Volume II will contain the law of self-incrimination, eyewitness identifications, and a Fifth Amendment Flowchart. The Illustrated Guide to Criminal Procedure is a complete law school course written and illustrated with clarity, humor, and passion.
