Film Showing: "Gideon's Army"
Twelve million people are arrested in the United States each year, and millions of those cases will proceed through the criminal justice system. It is not uncommon for lawyers to handle hundreds of cases at a time. What does this mean for our justice system?
Gideon's Army seeks to answer that question by following three young public defenders as they counsel hundreds of defendants through the strained criminal justice system in the Deep South.
