As an excon who spent years in the Washington state prison system The reporting is accurate and so important, albeit incongruous to the beliefs many Americans have about their country’s justice system. Personally, listening to this series has given me a profound sense of empathy and gratitude for our public defenders (a.k.a. public pretenders, power truck, etc) who are the neglected heroes daily fighting to uphold the ideals of justice. Wow, never thought I’d say that lol! It’s totally contrary to the beliefs I’ve held since getting sentenced to 60 months in prison back in 2013.
