About the Book
This unique text takes an “all-in-one” approach to the criminal law of Arkansas that criminal justice professionals need to know. The text is divided into three major sections. The first section is a very concise introduction to the general principles of the criminal law. It provides an understanding of the critical ideas and vocabulary that make understanding specific criminal offences possible. The second section deals with the substantive criminal law. This section details the specific elements of selected criminal offenses and attempts to simplify the technical jargon found in the text of the Arkansas Criminal Code. The third section deals with criminal evidence and procedure. These are the rules and regulations that every officer needs to know in order to protect the civil liberties guaranteed to the citizens of Arkansas, ensure that evidence is admissible in court, and protect themselves and their departments from civil liability.

Appendix 1 include a handy keyword table that allows the reader to look up criminal statutes by keyword and find the corresponding Criminal Code sections as well as the section in the book. Other appendices include the United States Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the Arkansas Constitution.

The text contains over 400 footnotes, allowing quick reference to primary sources of law. A wide array of materials from state and federal constitutions, state and federal court cases, the Arkansas Criminal Code, the Arkansas Rules of Criminal Procedure, and the Arkansas Rules of Evidence are brought together in a compact, easy to read format.
