RHODE ISLAND CRIMINAL DEFENSE
A Practice Manual, 4th Edition
© John E. MacDonald
Purpose and Scope
This manual contains a summary of the important cases touching upon every major procedural facet of criminal defense representation. This edition also includes an immigration section that discusses the responsibilities of counsel and the immigration consequences of selected Rhode Island statutes. A CD containing the entire manual in PDF format is available in the back pocket.
The first edition of this manual began in 1997 as an effort to summarize and understand the cases I needed to know as a young Public Defender in order to effectively represent my clients. I began with a stack of cases and materials I received from the office veterans and worked from there. This manual is dedicated to the trial and appellate attorneys of the Rhode Island Public Defender’s Office. They remain the vanguard of zealous criminal defense representation in this state.
