With sadness it is reported that Robert J. Hooker, a public defender and member of the Board of Directors of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (NACDL), was killed as a result of an automobile accident. Bob's career included service as a Superior Court judge and as a criminal defense lawyer in private practice. But most recently, Bob had chosen to devote this career to being a public defender. And those who knew him agree that when it came to professionalism, Bob was a leader.
