A Goal-Oriented Model Code of Pre-Arraignment Procedure for Wisconsin

In this article we analyze the arrest chapter of the proposed code as it was substantially completed at the time the project was terminated, although it has been updated to accommodate relevant recent case law. We examine the need for guiding principles in drafting a code, the proper aims and organization of the code, the proposed provisions of the arrest chapter, and the law and practice which recommend both the principles and the provisions.
