Maryland Criminal Procedure is the culmination of 35 years of teaching, writing, and practicing by University of Baltimore School of Law Professor Byron L. Warnken.
The three-volume treatise contains more than 10,000 cases, rules and statutes, yet easily breaks down specific topic areas.
In the foreword, Hon. Charles Moylan says, "For trial and appellate judges, for seasoned prosecutors and defense attorneys, and for those lawyers who are called into the criminal courts only occasionally, it will be a destination for 'one stop shopping' ..."
"The book will become the "go to" for criminal law practitioners." --Judge Irma S. Raker, Maryland Court of Appeals (Ret.)
"Byron Warnken has written the most comprehensive and useful treatise ever published about criminal procedure in Maryland. For many years, Maryland lawyers and judges, legal scholars, and the public will be indebted to Professor Warnken. " -Larry Gibson, Author, Young Thurgood
"As a former prosecutor and current Attorney General, I have spent almost 25 years handling criminal cases or supervising other attorneys. Maryland Criminal Procedure by Byron Warnken is a complete criminal treatise and an excellent resource for both me and my staff." -Doug Gansler, Attorney General of Maryland
