I'm excited to let you know that we have a bonus episode of For the Defense that has been released this morning. It's an interview with Judge Jed Rakoff about his book: Why the Innocent Plead Guilty and the Guilty go Free. The book is a fascinating set of essays that Judge Rakoff wrote about the craziness of our criminal justice system. We discuss those essays, including the trial tax, sentencing, the death penalty, how to get the system back on track, and other really great issues during our talk.
You can check out the bonus episode on Apple, Spotify, and Google, All other platforms,
including a regular desktop player, can be accessed on our website. And you can pick up
a copy of Judge Rakoff's book here.
It's also not too late to catch up on Seasons 1 and 2 of For The Defense. If you have a friend that would like to receive these updates, please have them sign up here.
