Abstract: For each chapter, an overview of a particular criminal procedure issue is provided, followed by profiles of the relevant U.S. Supreme Court "key" cases and "other" cases. The first chapter addresses criminal procedure as a constitutional issue. Discussions of historical development, impermissible methods of obtaining evidence, and the use of physical force are followed by the pertinent Supreme Court cases. A chapter on warrant requirements discusses the establishment of probable cause, a neutral magistrate, the execution of warrants, and administrative warrants, before presenting the relevant Supreme Court cases. The chapter on field interviews presents Supreme Court cases that pertain to when a person may be stopped, the length of detention, when a person may be searched, the scope of a search, and special situations. The chapter on arrest and booking profiles Supreme Court cases that have dealt with when an arrest warrant is required, the establishment of probable cause, entering a dwelling to make an arrest, the scope of a search, search incident to arrest of a person in a car, booking, and the probable cause hearing. Other chapters focus on Supreme Court cases that have addressed vehicle searches, observations of evidence not covered by reasonable expectation of privacy, eavesdropping and wiretapping, varying expectations of privacy, the privilege against self-incrimination, identification procedures, the right to counsel, other issues related to criminal trials, first amendment issues, the exclusionary rule, and the Civil Rights Act.
