Public Defender Crisis Noted

"Years of drastic budget cuts have created bottomless caseloads for public defenders – the ‘pack mules of the system’ – and tipped the scales of justice against the poor."

A three-part series was published in September by the Guardian in partnership with the Marshall Project.  

Part 1:  The Human Toll of America's Public Defender Crisis.
Part 2:  Louisiana Public Defenders: a Lawyer With a Pulse Will Do.
Part 3:  For Louisiana's Defenseless Poor, It's One For All.
