A quarter century ago, any comparative criminal law in the United States tended to treat the federal criminal justice system as the model for other systems (state, military, Indian tribal). The fifty state systems handled the vast majority of criminal cases. They were reforming both their adherence to federal constitutional protections for the accused and their administrative organization. Criminal justice had become a large volume business and old "horse and buggy'' practices could not keep up with the workload.
