At Fault Lines, Ken Womble has dug deep into the bowels of Nassau County Legal Aid Society’s representation of the poor, going to the source training materials and what they instruct public defenders to do. And it is ugly.
In long form, Womble lays it out, chapter and verse, with hard proof that rights of indigent defendants in Nassau County, Long Island, are being ignored so that the wheels of “justice” grind smoothly.
If you read nothing else today, read Ken’s post.
Update: Part 2 of Ken’s magnum opus is up at Fault Lines. Part 1 was the “how.” Part 2 is the “why.”
