Criminal Procedure Criminal procedures are debatable on what is more effective and how to implement such policies. Due Process and Crime Control are two different models that explain the criminal procedure policy of the United States, and they will be discussed in this paper. Along with how the Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, and Fourteenth Amendments impact both of these models. The final subject of this paper will be how the Fourteenth Amendment applied the Bill of Rights to the states. The Due Process Model is a process that works on the assumption that the criminal justice system has errors, and because of those errors a defendant is not guilty until proven otherwise.

Discuss whether the current law relating to attempted crimes strikes the right balance between protecting society and those who deserve to be punished. The definition of attempts is now defined by s1(1) of the Criminal Attempts Act 1981 'a person does an act which is more than merely preparatory to the commission of the offence, he is guilty of attempting to commit the offence'. As with all offences the prosecution must prove the AR and the MR. The AR for attempts is when a person does an act which is more than merely preparatory to the commission of the offence (AG's Ref 1993). Before the 1981 Act the courts used several tests to decide whether D had done enough towards the commission of the offence to satisfy the AR.
Due Process CJA 224 February 13, 2012 Introduction The due process model is a model of the criminal justice system that believes freedom is important that every attempt must be created to make sure that criminal justice decisions are based on trustworthy information. Due process stresses the adversarial process, the rights of defendant and formal decision-making procedure.

Therefore, people should be classified as criminals only on the base of firm evidence. Abstract The criminal justice process varies from state to state.
Question of Law: Do the limitations which the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment impose on the conduct of criminal proceedings by the States? Holding: “The Due Process Clause empowers this Court to nullify any state law if its application ‘shocks the conscience,’ offends ‘a sense of justice’ or runs counter to the ‘decencies of conduct.’ ” Reasoning: “The Due Process Clause places upon this Court the duty of exercising a judgment upon interests of society pushing in opposite directions.
