The Constitution and the Supreme Court have much to say about the power of government to investigate, detain, prosecute, sentence, and punish individuals for crime. This course examines the major legal decisions that shape constitutional law with respect to crime, and how the balance is struck between the presumption of innocence, the protection of the individual, and the government’s duty to enforce the laws and ensure public safety.
