Sample text

The criminal justice system, as argued here, is both a system and a nonsystem, tied together by core tasks but also marked by tensions and conflicts. The same holds true for the courts. Judges, prosecutors, and defense attorneys, for example, share the common task of processing cases but at the same time exhibit different perspectives on the proper outcome of the case. Understanding this complexity, in America’s Courts and the Criminal Justice System we examine the nation’s judiciary from three complementary perspectives.

A wide gap exists between legal theory (law on the books) and how that law is applied (law in action). Although some people find this gap shocking, actually it is not; after all, no human institution ever lives up to the high ideals set out for it. If you spend 5 minutes observing a stop sign on a well-traveled street, you will find that not all cars come to a complete stop, and some do not seem to slow down much at all. Yet at the same time, the stop sign (the law on the books in this example) clearly does affect the behavior of drivers (law in action).

Immediately in front of these two tables was the judge, sitting high on the bench with several key court staff arrayed below him. On one side was the witness chair, which during the course of the trial was occupied by friends and family of the deceased as well as various law enforcement officers. And on the other side was the jury box, filled with local citizens. The jury found House guilty of murder and sentenced him to death. All of these persons in the House case are important. For this reason, Part II focuses on the actors in the courthouse.
