Rhode Island Criminal Defense: A Practice Manual 9th Edition

Rhode Island Criminal Defense Practice Manual Ninth Edition

In December of 2020, John E. MacDonald published the 9th edition of his trial manual.

This manual was first published 20 years ago and continues to be updated with the information that active criminal defense lawyers need in Rhode Island Superior and District Court. 

The manual is considered a necessary addition to any serious criminal lawyer’s collection and is requested by trial judges throughout the state. 

The 9th edition expanded its summary of the elements, sentences and immigration consequences of the vast majority of Rhode Island state crimes.

“…This manual contains a summary of the important cases and court rules
touching upon every major procedural facet of criminal defense
representation in Rhode Island District and Superior state courts. From
arraignment to appeal, you will find the essential cases, statutes, practice
tips and form motions. Also included is a summary of the elements,
penalties and potential immigration consequences for the vast majority
of Rhode Island criminal offenses…”
