Cory Booker 1 week ago:   Saturday Mar 18 - 12:38pm In fact, there are counties and states in America where public defenders are responsible for more than 200 cases AT A TIME.
Not to mention, public defenders get paid at least $10,000/yr LESS than the prosecutors, (who have exponentially more resources) that they’re up against. Cory Booker 1 week ago:   Saturday Mar 18 - 12:38pm The truth is, our public defense system is under such strain that in many places it barely functions.
Despite their essential work to the cause of justice, public defenders in many counties are carrying crushing caseloads. Cory Booker 1 week ago:   Saturday Mar 18 - 12:38pm This is a story of perseverance, and ultimately a triumph for Justice.
