Picking Cotton

Picking Cotton” illustrates many elements of the criminal justice system from the crime victim’s perspective, as well as the defendant’s perspective. The book begins with the crime itself and then highlights situations involving police procedures, court procedures and correctional procedures and experiences. Choose two criminal justice system legal procedures or issues that are described in the book. Organize your paper so that each procedure or issue is discussed separately (3 full pages each) and include the pages where it is discussed in the book. Provide a summary of the facts (one paragraph each). Describe the situation, how it occurred and what you think the procedure or issue is that is important to discuss. How is this procedure or issue significant to the criminal justice system? Should the procedure or issue have been handled differently?
