This three-hour audiobook will let you learn and review the core elements of criminal procedure, which apply in most states and local districts, as well. Morton covers the eight important areas: the fourth amendment, statesments, confessions, identifications, pretrial procedure, the sixth amendment, post trial, prisoner and juvenile rights, double jeopardy, and procedural considerations, and the criminal defendant. A must-listen for every law student, lawyer, and people interested in the law or involved in legal cases.

This is an outline, written with no thought whatsoever given to the fact that it would be read aloud. Imagine passages like this "Five. For a discussion of whether suspects have R-E-P in car containers, see section 1.3.2.a supra." Godawful. This would be a bad outline in text format, it is a crime in audio.
No. This should not really be called a performance, so much as reading into a laptop in Deaver's house, apparently, based on background noise. He should have had someone edit his reading to fix obvious errors, like reading the wrong word in a sentence, and then continuing on like nothing had happened. Very distracting. He also should have learned the difference between words like "peremptory" and "preemptory," This is like an advertisement for Sum and Substance, what an awful performance.
There are different interpretations of law, but several statements in the outline are directly contradictory to statements made in crim pro class at law school, and in textbooks from well known authors.. The law may have changed since publication, or, given the competence of the rest of the production, the author has the law wrong.
This book was very informative and translated well to an audible.
IF you are a beginning law student or someone interested in law this is a good listen.
