Criminal justice advocates and practitioners work with clients every day who have had close encounters with law enforcement -- but do clients know their rights? When is it okay for police to stop someone? When can police make an arrest, conduct a search, or interrogate someone? Cynthia Jones will unpack these processes around arrests and sentencing, what clients' rights are, and special considerations for women in this phase of the justice system.
Professor Jones teaches Evidence, Criminal Law, and Criminal Procedure at the American University Washington College of Law. She also serves as the Director of the law school's Stephen S. Weinstein Trial Advocacy Program.
