Criminal Evidence: Critical Readings
Criminal Evidence: Critical Readings provides students with carefully curated selections within the discipline that foster their philosophical and practical understanding of criminal evidence. Pragmatic in nature, the text focuses on the evidence that is presented within criminal investigations and trials.
The book is organized in a logical way by first offering an introduction to criminal evidence, then sources of law, and finally the issues that may arise in an investigation and trial. Each chapter features an introduction, featured readings, key terms, study questions, and real-world examples of the topics and theories discussed to help students better understand practical applications of the material within their future careers. Specific topics include the federal rules of evidence; the discovery, preservation, collection, and transmission of evidence; interrogations and confessions; the exclusionary rule; expert witnesses; hearsay; and more.
Featuring highly accessible and focused material, Criminal Evidence is an ideal resource for undergraduate courses in criminal evidence and criminal procedure.
