Overview
Paul Butler was an ambitious federal prosecutor, a Harvard Law grad who gave up his corporate law salary to fight the good fight--until one day he was arrested on the street and charged with a crime he didn't commit. The Volokh Conspiracy calls Butler's account of his trial -the most riveting first chapter I have ever read.-
In a book Harvard Law professor Charles Ogletree calls -a must read, - Butler looks at places where ordinary citizens meet the justice system--as jurors, witnesses, and in encounters with the police--and explores what -doing the right thing- means in a corrupt system.
Since Let's Get Free's publication in spring 2009, Butler has become the go-to person for commentary on criminal justice and race relations: he appeared on ABC News, Good Morning America, and Fox News, published op-eds in the New York Times and other national papers, and is in demand to speak across the country. The paperback edition brings Butler's groundbreaking and highly controversial arguments--jury nullification (voting -not guilty- in drug cases as a form of protest), just saying -no- when the police request your permission to search, and refusing to work inside the system as a snitch or a prosecutor--to a whole new audience.
