Practicing criminal defense attorney Dan Conaway has written Arrested to help us all understand our rights and responsibilities in the country we live in.
"The Beast"-as he refers to our criminal justice system-has little to do with the way it looks on TV. Clearing away the fiction Conaway addresses real-world topics about how to handle yourself-and help others-when facing the worst.
Although not intended as a substitute for professional legal counsel Arrested can be used as a guide as you work your way through the maze of one of the most complicated systems on the planet.
With the help of fact-based scenarios Conaway shows us all what could happen to any of us if we're not careful. Along with explanations of how we have become a "zero-tolerance" society-and practical real-life examples-Arrested will give you the background and foresight to handle yourself in almost any situation.
