    Hardcover ¼ Chasing Gideon PDF ê chasing kindle, gideon pdf, Chasing Gideon KindleThis book is about the haves and the have nots when it comes to criminal defense in the USA She tells the stories of overworked underfunded public defenders and their clients who miss out on their constitutional right to effective counsel She assesses the lack of progress in the 50 years since the Supreme Court ruled in Gideon but does not offer a solution It's clear again similar to my reaction to The New Jim Crow by Michelle Alexander that the failure of t
