Summary
Learn how to protect yourself from the American criminal justice system. And why you need to! Practicing criminal defense attorney Dan Conaway has written Arrested to help us all understand our rights and responsibilities in the country we live in. "The Beast"-as he refers to our criminal justice system-has little to do with the way it looks on TV. Clearing away the fiction, Conaway addresses real-world topics about how to handle yourself - and help others - when facing the worst. Although not intended as a substitute for professional legal counsel, Arrested can be used as a guide as you work your way through the maze of one of the most complicated systems on the planet. With the help of fact-based scenarios, Conaway shows us all what could happen to any of us if we're not careful. Along with explanations of how we have become a "zero-tolerance" society-and practical, real-life examples-Arrested will give you the background and foresight to handle yourself in almost any situation
