Forget Gitmo: Judge Proclaims Indigent Defense in New Orleans a "Legal Hell"

Posted by Alan Childress
Brian Privor has the story and links an article on the threat to release prisoners, and quotes from a Louisiana criminal court judge, on his carpetblogging site Do Not Pass Geaux:54671_monopoly_strijkijzer

How's this for a judicial cold shower and pot of coffee: "Indigent defense in New Orleans is unbelievable, unconstitutional, totally lacking the basic professional standards of legal representation, and a mockery of what a criminal justice system should be in a Western civilized nation." In short, it's a "legal hell."
