American Justice: The Defenders
Once a noble profession, the public defendant now must face harsh criticism from an increasingly judgmental population. A&E hears from those that represent the untouchables in American Justice: The Defenders. Though based on an "innocent until proven guilty" theory, the legal system suffers from the ploys of the media and clever prosecution. Often, an alleged perpetrator is tried and convicted before the courtroom even fills. That's where defenders come in. It is their job to represent the criminals and give voice to the blameless. This one-hour program profiles the men and women who take their jobs very seriously even if it means protecting someone they know to be guilty. Defense attorneys talk about how the lack of money and time often leads to underpreparation. The entire construct falls victim to a classist system wherein the rich are favored and the poor lose out. By talking to the people struggling to ensure justice, A&E gets to the heart of the defense. ~ Sarah Ing, Rovi
