Learn About Criminal Law and Procedures

If you or a family member has contact with the criminal justice system, you probably have a lot of questions about criminal law and procedure. If the police stop you on the street, do you have to talk to them? When can the police make an arrest? What happens during booking? When might a judge reduce bail or waive it altogether? How can you find a good lawyer?

Here you’ll find articles that will explain the criminal law and the justice system, inside and outside the courtroom. The goal of this website is to cultivate educated clients, relatives and friends of defendants, victims, and members of society. If you are facing criminal charges, this site won’t prepare you to defend yourself (which is rarely a good idea), but what you learn here should help you work effectively with your lawyer.
