Much of the daily work of law enforcement officers, prosecutors and criminal court judges is controlled by hundreds of decisions issued by the US Supreme Court over the past few decades. Keeping up with all of the principles governing police searches and seizures, interrogation of suspects and eyewitness identification procedures has been a daunting challenge-until now! Introduction to Criminal Evidence brings together in a single volume all of the important Supreme Court rulings affecting these highly-refined areas of law. More importantly, the author and criminal justice instructor, Devallis Rutledge, presents these court opinions in an easy-to-understand format by the use of plain-English explanations and examples. Authoritative and comprehensible, this book summarizes, cites or quotes from 433 Supreme Court decisions and simplifies the concepts for the practicing professional. Mr. Rutledge's long and distinguished career in the law enforcement field-as police officer, prosecutor, civil liability litigator, academy instructor, law school professor and author of eleven criminal justice books-makes him uniquely qualified to review the vast body of constitutional law bearing on criminal investigations, and to distill the guiding principles in language that makes sense of even the most complicated topics.
