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. It’s one of two Nolo books to appear in a movie Teaching Mrs. Tingle w/ Helen Mirren (1999).
The criminal justice system is complicated, understand it and your rights

Criminal law is full of complex rules and procedures, but this book demystifies them. It explains how the system works, why police, lawyers, and judges do what they do, and what suspects, defendants, and prisoners can expect. It also provides critical information on working with a lawyer.

  • trials
  • sentencing
  • working with defense attorneys
  • common defenses
  • constitutional rights
