The third edition of New York Criminal Procedure provides the student, professional, and scholar with a valuable resource for insightful analysis of New York's Criminal Procedure Law.
This text thoroughly reviews statutory, constitutional, and case law, including the results of a once-in-a-generation wave of legislative reforms. Reforms bringing to bear progressive policies to an array of new bright-line requirements and discretionary guidelines. New York's legislature made sweeping changes to bail requirements, and juvenile justice, with new age-based presumptions of criminal responsibility, and an entirely new "Youth Part" within its court system. Major changes also apply to the rules of discovery, and new requirements for a speedy trial.
This book examines the reforms, and the criminal procedure statute in its entirety. Including: arrest, arraignment, pleadings, hearings, motions, discovery, evidence, trial and appeal, to special procedures such as immunity, jurisdiction, wiretapping, and extradition.
Over eighty illustrative cases provide precedents and judicial analysis of: stop and frisk, search warrants, no-knock entry, grand jury proceedings, plea bargaining, bail, the admission of prior witness statements at trial, bodily intrusions, DNA testing, suppression of evidence, jury trial, sentencing, and sex offender registration. All covered through three major sources of law, enables the student, professional, or scholar attain a comprehensive understanding of New York's Criminal Procedure law.
