Summary "In this 2-part series, lawyers, prosecutors, judges, and police officers take us through the entire process of jurisprudence, from investigation and arrest procedures to courtroom proceedings and sentencing"--Web page. -- Disc 1. The laws of the criminal justice system are framed first and foremost by the United States Constitution, the document that gives our government its powers, limits those powers, and ensures our rights to life, liberty, and property. While the system is designed to bring criminals to justice, it must also meet the standards of due process set forth in the Constitution. The criminal justice system, then, has two functions: protect the public safety and maintain the public confidence. In this program, lawyers, prosecutors, and judges explain the differences between misdemeanors, felonies, the various degrees of crimes, and the elements of a crime. Investigation procedures in the gathering of evidence and statements are discussed. Legal experts and police officers clearly illustrate such concepts as 5th Amendment rights, Miranda warnings, the "stop and frisk" rule, search warrants, and the "knock and announce" rule. Probable cause and arrest procedures are also demonstrated. -- Disc 2. Once a person is arrested for a crime, it is up to our court system to determine whether the individual is guilty or innocent. In this program, a variety of legal experts take us through pretrial and trial procedures, pointing out along the way the differences between adult and juvenile proceedings. Judges and lawyers navigate us through the pretrial process, beginning with the establishment of probable cause and formal charging by grand jury or preliminary hearing. Indictment, pretrial release, bail, and arraignment are also discussed. The entire courtroom process is explored from plea bargaining and trial by jury to the adversary system of direct examination, cross-examination, and rebuttal. Such concepts of an alibi, burden of proof, and reasonable doubt are clearly explained. Finally, our panel of experts comments on a sentencing hearing and punishment, along with the defendant's constitutional right to appeal
