This book focuses on the law of criminal procedure and sentencing in Western Australia. A considerable body of legislation and decisions has been in place for a period of time in Western Australia on both these subjects. This book consolidates this vast subject matter in a straightforward and practical manner.
Drawing on the author’s experience as a state prosecutor, in-house legal adviser, defence lawyer and criminal law tutor, the book provides an essential practical addition for the courts, practitioners, and students alike. The result is a summary of the law for students and younger lawyers, while providing a base for practitioners’ research.
