The document is a good timeline with descriptions of the "critical" points in the criminal justice system; (when the right to an attorney attaches) during the pretrial and trial stages.  The use of Bold font throughout is distracting, and some of the examples appear "North Carolina" centric.  It can be used as a lesson guide for persons preparing a lecture over these topics.  I recommend it for folk looking for a new way to present this material as well as first timers.
