Before trying a criminal case in federal court, it is vital for the defense attorney to understand the procedure, both from the vantage points of the prosecution and the defense. With these goals in mind, Attorney Rocco Cipparone provides an inclusive and compelling overview of the federal process, from complaint to sentencing. Supplementing technical disquisition with personal anecdotes, Rocco’s discussion includes the pretrial service, detention monitors, arraignment, and the rules governing discovery.
