Criminal Procedures: Cases, Statutes, and Executive Materials, by Marc Miller, Ronald Wright, Jenia Turner, and Kay Levine, focuses on the interactions among multiple institutions in shaping the law of Criminal Procedure, bringing state courts, legislatures, prosecutor offices, and police department policymakers into the picture alongside the U.S. Supreme Court.

Criminal Procedures: Cases, Statutes, and Executive Materials is noted for its comprehensive coverage and excellent selection and editing of cases and materials. The book is known for its special focus on a rich selection of materials from multiple institutions, including primary materials from U.S. Supreme Court cases, state high court cases, state and federal statutes, rules of procedure, and police and prosecutorial policies, along with materials from social science studies. The new edition retains the casebook’s engaging writing style and division of materials into “teachable chunks.” Updated cases are chosen for their contemporary accuracy and feel, to complement essential cases of historical value. Taken together, the principal materials highlight procedural variety, focus on real process topics, provide the political context, and consider the impact of procedures on the various parties involved. The scholarly expertise and experience of the authors are especially reflected in the Criminal Procedure II materials, which include coverage of prosecutorial charging, plea bargaining, and sentencing. Their frequent use of Problems gives instructors options for applying concepts and doctrines in realistic practice settings. 

New to the 7th Edition:  

  • New organization for the search and seizure chapters to better reflect long-term doctrinal changes. 
  • Coverage of new design options for police organizations, inspired by the “Defund the Police” movement.  
  • Spotlighting the Breonna Taylor tragedy in Louisville as a focal point for discussion of no-knock warrants.  
  • Emphasis throughout the search and seizure chapters on the interaction between technology and doctrinal change.  
  • Coverage of declination and plea negotiation policies in the offices of “progressive prosecutors.”  
  • Enhanced coverage of the operation of state speedy trial statutes in high-volume courts  
  • Fresh evaluation of historical trends and current practices in plea bargaining. 
  • Coverage of recent rulings of U.S. Supreme Court on jury selection and unanimous jury verdicts. 

Professors and students will benefit from: 

  • Materials that support class discussion, including criminal court actors beyond the Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court: the vision is “street level federalism.”   
  • Materials that portray for students the range of current practices in criminal justice rather than a rushed historical narrative about doctrinal trends.  
  • Supporting web site that offers exemplar documents from legal practice, recent news with relevance for criminal procedure, and brief video lectures to introduce each major unit. 
  • Emphasis on high-volume practical issues in criminal procedure instead of intricate but rarely-encountered questions.  
  • Intuitive organization – tracking the typical sequence of events in criminal investigations and in the criminal courts – makes it easy to see connections among different areas of the law.
