New York Codeof Criminal Justice: A Practical Guide is a guide to the criminal statutes in New York. In addition to the full text of the New York Penal Law and Criminal Procedure Law, the book includes plain-language explanations of what the Penal Law statutes mean, with fictional fact patterns that depict the crimes found in the statutes. A practical application of the statutes further illustrate the statutes and offenses. This book is an exceptional tool for lawyers, judges, law students, and police officers.

Preceding each statutory chapter or group of chapters in the penal code is a fictional fact pattern. Following each statute that defines a felony or misdemeanor is a practical application section. These sections draw on the fictional characterizations to explain the statutes. Readers can use the fact patterns and practical applications to understand the language of the statutes and determine how to charge appropriately under them.
