A warm and positive profile of a public defender!
Rare as it is, the AP has just run a story praising the phenomenal Federal Defender--Judy Clarke.
And boy does she deserve it.
"Judy Clarke has been described as a 'one-woman Dream Team' by a colleague who helped her defend Susan Smith, the South Carolina mom who avoided a death sentence after being convicted of drowning her two little boys in 1995"
She also did the Unabomber case--oh yeah, and after the Smith trial--she donated her fee to an anti-death penalty group.
Truly a heroine.
