“We can divide the questions on the implications of privacy for the criminal law into three groups; each set of papers bears, more or less directly, on one of these groups. First, what difference should a concern for privacy make to the content of the substantive criminal law?..Second, what contraints should a concern for privacy place on the cirminal process of investigating and prosecuting crime?..Third, how far can or should criminal punishment resepct the privacy of those who are punished: what would an appropriate respect for privacy require, or preclude?” (excerpt)
