Criminal Law / compiled by Linda A. Malone, Paul Marcus & Geraldine Szott Moohr. 7th ed. LexisNexis, 2012.

KF9219.C75 2012

 

By treating criminal law from both theoretical and practical perspectives, this casebook helps students to understand the underlying principles of criminal law and to relate them to real-life situations.  In introducing students to the criminal justice system, Criminal Law raises questions such as:  “What is the purpose of punishment?” and “What is the relationship between the state and individuals?”  Other issues which are covered include:  efforts by cities to prosecute homeless people for sleeping in public areas, assisted suicide, conspiracy and multiple defendant trials, rape (including date rape and post-penetration rape), attempted murder based on biting/spitting by AIDS patients, “stand your ground” statutes, and battered victim syndrome.
