The criminal practitioner knows all too well that police misconduct issues directly bear on the investigation, prosecution, and defense of many criminal cases. Misconduct issues arise in a broad variety of circumstances—from coerced confessions to questionable searches, and from pretextual criminal charges to suborned perjury—and each circumstance must be carefully scrutinized to determine the impact on the prosecution and defense of the case.
Police Misconduct examines the implications of police misconduct from the crime scene, arrest, preliminary proceedings, investigation, discovery, and litigation of pretrial motions through the jury selection process and trial. Supporting legal analysis and case citations are provided together with sample motions and memoranda.
