Product Overview

In this new and revised edition, Professor Beloof, Professor Cassell and victims' attorney Steven Twist update the dramatic changes that have taken place since the last edition. The filed of crime-victim law is rapidly growing and evolving, continuing to prove itself the greatest revolution in criminal procedure in recent decades. This book includes the federal Crime Victims' Rights Act and resulting cases, and it discusses the recent Human Rights Watch Report that looks favorably on rights of participation. It examines expanding standing to enforce rights of participation in California and other states. It also explores sexual assault and domestic violence within the criminal process. The new third edition examines the various sources of victim law, including common law, state constitutions, statutes, and judicial and prosecutorial discretion. The book includes not only recent case law concerning crime victims' rights, but also law review articles, victim impact statements, and other interesting materials. The authors provide the perfect set of reading materials for a full course on victims law, a seminar style discussion class, or supplemental materials for a conventional criminal procedure course.
