When evidence is excluded or a case is dismissed or overturned, it is puzzling that the redress of constitutional rights violations is spoken of so derisively. As a check on improper police and governmental behavior, the constitution is one of our strongest allies against corruption and malfeasance. Yet comprehension of this often vague document and the cases which seek to interpret it is frequently difficult. Written in a simple, straightforward manner, Constitutional Law and Criminal Justice examines the U.S. Constitution and its implication for criminal justice system policies and practices, clarifying principles in a concise yet comprehensive format. The book is carefully crafted to provide students with an easy-to-read explanation of the relationship between the two. Plain Language Explanations of Constitutional Rights Following an overview of the Bill of Rights, the book examines the components of the judiciary before focusing on due process; the first, fourth, fifth, sixth, and eighth amendments; and the exclusionary rule. Additional chapters address civil liability and the criminal justice professional as well as the impact of terrorism on the right of habeas corpus. Using review questions and relevant cases in each chapter to illustrate legal applications, this volume illuminates the concepts in plain language, eliminates unnecessary legal jargon, and clarifies the nuances in the law, making complicated concepts approachable by those without advanced legal training.

This textbook discusses, in plain English, the constitutional provisions that criminal justice professionals and students need to know. It uses the conversational approach to exploring the intersection of the U.S. Constitution and the criminal justice system. In this textbook, constitutional principles and requirements matter more than names of cases. Cases are used as examples and stories, but this is not a casebook. Chapter 1 is an overview of the U.S. Constitution. It also examines the Habeas Corpus Suspension Clause, the Ex Post Facto Clause, the Second Amendment, and other provisions. Chapters 2 and 3 examine the Fifth Amendment, including the Self Incrimination Clause. Chapters 4 and 5 examine the Due Process Clauses that appear in both the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments. The next three chapters examine the Sixth Amendment, which generally protects defendants’ trial rights. The four chapters after that examine the Fourth Amendment, which governs searches and seizures, and related issues. Chapter 13 examines the exclusionary rule, which applies primarily to searches and seizures. Chapter 14 examines the Eighth Amendment, which bans cruel and unusual punishment. The last two chapters examine the First Amendment, which protects people’s religious rights and free expression.The textbook is readable, gets to the point, and therefore covers more material than similar textbooks. The author – a former trial and appellate prosecutor at the local, federal, and international levels – has a passion for constitutional law and for sharing what he has learned about it. It comes through on every page.
