Criminal procedure law following an arrest for a crime is complex for a number of reasons-- most notably to provide the accused with the minimum protections under the law. The right to counsel and a speedy trial and the freedom from unlawful search and seizure and self-incrimination are all based on the Bill of Rights and applicable to all American citizens. Whether you are a law student or a practicing attorney, our newly updated, three-panel Criminal Procedure QuickStudy� guide has the latest statutory and precedent information to keep you up to date.

In both civil and criminal cases, evidence must be introduced to prove a case, but as in all law, it can only be introduced if it passes certain tests. Is a statement hearsay? Are there exceptions to hearsay rules? What kinds of character evidence are acceptable, and when? Who has the final say as to what evidence can be introduced? The admissibility of evidence can win or lose a case, so don t be caught in the dark; with our newly updated and expanded Evidence guide, color coded text highlights admissible and inadmissible evidence in our handy, 3 panel format."

The book also covers topics frequently omitted from course books, such as assault and battery, arson, burglary, kidnapping, entrapment, and permissive and mandatory presumptions. Readers will gain insights into issues unique to Florida criminal law, including the state's Stand Your Ground Law, its Unborn Victims of Violence Act, and its attempted felony murder statute, and into emerging areas of legislative change such as human trafficking. The book will be useful to law students and graduates studying for bar exams, academicians, legal scholars, judges, legislators, and the practicing bar.

Max Parkman—autistic and whip-smart, emotionally fragile and aggressive—is perfect in his mother's eyes. Until he's accused of murder. Attorney Danielle Parkman can't deny her son's behavior has been getting worse—drugs and violent outbursts have become a frightening routine.

The justice system is bearing down on them, so she must use her years of legal experience to find out the truth, no matter what that might be. But has she, too, lost touch with reality? Is her son truly a killer? www.SavingMaxBook.com
