Criminal justice professionals often do not receive the training they need to recognize the constitutional principles that apply to their daily work. Constitutional Law for Criminal Justice offers a way to solve this problem by providing a comprehensive, well-organized, and up-to-date analysis of constitutional issues that affect criminal justice professionals. Chapter 1 summarizes the organization and content of the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the Fourteenth Amendment. The next eight chapters cover the constitutional principles that regulate investigatory detentions, traffic stops, arrests, use of force, search and seizure, technologically assisted surveillance, the Wiretap Act, interrogations and confessions, self-incrimination, witness identification procedures, the right to counsel, procedural safeguards during criminal trials, First Amendment issues relevant to law enforcement, capital punishment, and much more. The final chapter covers the constitutional rights of criminal justice professionals in the workplace, their protection under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, and their accountability under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 for violating the constitutional rights of others. Part II contains abstracts of key judicial decisions exemplifying how the doctrines covered in earlier chapters are being applied by the courts. The combination of text and cases creates flexibility in structuring class time. Constitutional Law for Criminal Justice makes complex concepts accessible to students in all levels of criminal justice education. The chapters begin with an outline and end with a summary. Key Terms and Concepts are defined in the Glossary. Tables, figures, and charts are used to synthesize and simplify information. The result is an incomparably clear, student-friendly textbook that has remained a leader in criminal justice education for more than 45 years.

This textbook discusses, in plain English, the constitutional provisions that criminal justice professionals and students need to know. It uses the conversational approach to exploring the intersection of the U.S. Constitution and the criminal justice system. In this textbook, constitutional principles and requirements matter more than names of cases. Cases are used as examples and stories, but this is not a casebook. Chapter 1 is an overview of the U.S. Constitution. It also examines the Habeas Corpus Suspension Clause, the Ex Post Facto Clause, the Second Amendment, and other provisions. Chapters 2 and 3 examine the Fifth Amendment, including the Self Incrimination Clause. Chapters 4 and 5 examine the Due Process Clauses that appear in both the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments. The next three chapters examine the Sixth Amendment, which generally protects defendants’ trial rights. The four chapters after that examine the Fourth Amendment, which governs searches and seizures, and related issues. Chapter 13 examines the exclusionary rule, which applies primarily to searches and seizures. Chapter 14 examines the Eighth Amendment, which bans cruel and unusual punishment. The last two chapters examine the First Amendment, which protects people’s religious rights and free expression.The textbook is readable, gets to the point, and therefore covers more material than similar textbooks. The author – a former trial and appellate prosecutor at the local, federal, and international levels – has a passion for constitutional law and for sharing what he has learned about it. It comes through on every page.

Hair and Justice discusses criminal acts, deviance, rebellion, and power in contexts demonstrating that hair is an intricate and important issue and piece of evidence in criminal justice, constitutional law, and public policy. The book demonstrates that the significance of hair in society is relative, in flux, and constantly being debated. The text argues that members of a culture and society share perceptions about hair that may be misunderstood or judged by outsiders and authorities. The book presents dozens of cases in which eyewitnesses have described perpetrators’ and defendants’ hair. However, eyewitness testimony is often unreliable and the value given to it may conflict with or further shape the extent to which society will tolerate misunderstandings or misperceptions about hair. Major sections include: religion; evidence; institutions; head shaving; gangs; animals; authority and power; crimes; Fourth Amendment; regulation, codes, and licenses; politics; and education. This very unique book will be a valuable resource for students and professionals in sociology, law, law enforcement, psychology, gang studies, criminal justice, criminology, social science, public administration, and related areas of study.
