The 2016 edition of the Criminal Justice Handbook is now available from the Administrative Office of the Courts. The handbook contains more than 600 pages of Tennessee criminal statutes and court rules and is updated each year to reflect changes made by the Legislature and the courts.
The book includes chapters 11 through 17 of Title 39 – often referred to as the criminal code. There are also sections on the Sentencing Act, Rules of Criminal Procedure, and Rules of Evidence. The appendix includes sections on DUI, warrants and summons, bail and a list of offenses class by criminal class and code.
This year, the page numbering scheme in the book has been modified slightly to make it easier to navigate through the large book. The price remains unchanged for 2016, at $30 for a single copy, with volume discounts available. A CD of the content also is available for $30.
