This straightforward introduction to criminal procedure combines case excerpts with clear, detailed legal discussion and analysis to give students a solid understanding of the field. The book's longtime success can be attributed to the author's ability to help readers grasp the complexities of law by clearly presenting all sides of an issue. Professor Samaha wants students to go beyond simply memorizing procedures. While most criminal procedure texts focus on "how to," Samaha combines "how" and "why." The text addresses the entire criminal process -- from crime prevention and criminal investigation to post-conviction sentencing and review. CRIMINAL PROCEDURE, Tenth Edition highlights the enormous impact of the "digital revolution" throughout the criminal process, provides the latest appellate court cases and new U.S. Magistrate published decisions, and updates such key topics as the changing political nature of the Supreme Court, domestic terrorism, and immigration law. What’s more, the MindTap® that accompanies this text helps students practice and master techniques and key concepts while engaging them with video cases, career-based decision-making scenarios, visual summaries, and more.

    • "You Decide" boxes develop critical thinking skills by looking at cases that push the boundaries of existing criminal procedure. "Criminal Procedure in Action" boxes in most chapters expand on key concepts and issues raised in the chapter.
    • Providing maximum learning reinforcement, each chapter begins with numbered learning objectives that are carefully matched to chapter sections and end-of-chapter summaries.
    • Going well beyond the words in the principles, doctrines, and rules of criminal procedure examined in the text, "Case Excerpts" teach students to understand concepts by applying them to the facts of specific cases. Questions following each excerpt test students' knowledge and understanding of the principles, doctrines, and reasoning presented in the excerpt. Case Questions prompt students to evaluate, criticize, and propose alternatives to the parties' arguments and the decisions of the court as presented in the excerpt.
    • Providing students with an excellent overview, Samaha's classical perspective illustrates how the constitutional principles of criminal procedure have endured for centuries -- even while courts and legislatures adapt them to meet society's ever-changing needs.
    • Updated case coverage includes: "U.S. v. Armstrong" (1996) on provability of race-based drug prosecution; "U.S. v. Ganias" (2014) on seizures of property such as computer files; "Navarette v. California" (2014) about an anonymous tip in stop-and-frisk cases; and "Estate of Ronald Armstrong v. Pinehurst et al." (2016) on taser use during an involuntary commitment order.
    • New to this edition are U.S. Magistrate published decisions resulting from the "Magistrates' Revolt," a phrase coined to describe how Federal Magistrates around the country have been denying government requests for search warrants for broad swaths of suspects' electronic communications.
    • New topics in this edition include law enforcement crowd control and the First Amendment; police body cams and citizen smartphone videos of police encounters; trial judge review of search warrant applications based on digital sources -- including smartphones, texting, tweets, social media postings, and the wide range of information by ISPs that criminal suspects use to organize their possible criminal activities.
    • Updated throughout, this edition continues to provide real-world insight to students with coverage on such hot topics as the changing political nature of the Supreme Court, forensic evidence, foreign and domestic terrorism, enhanced interrogation, military courts, immigration law, mass domestic violence, and gun control.
    • The enormous impact of the "digital revolution" is highlighted in this edition, particularly the effect of the Internet and social media throughout the criminal process.
