Crime and criminal justice is the topic. Our guest is Emeritus Law Professor Gary T. Lowenthal, at the Sandra Day O’Conner College of Law at Arizona State University. He’s the author of the 2003 book, "Down and Dirty Justice: A Chilling Journey into the Dark World of Crime and the Criminal Courts." This program recorded on January 7, 2004, and first broadcast in February 2013, began with our discussion about the power structure in the American criminal court systems, where the judge has the authority, but the power often rests with the prosecutor. We later visit the background of sentencing laws first promoted by President Richard Nixon.
The book Gary Lowenthal recommends is “Seabiscuit” by Laura Hillenbrand. This program was recorded in January 7, 2004, and first broadcast in February 2013. You may learn more about Professor Lowenthal’s work at http://apps.law.asu.edu/Apps/Faculty/Faculty.aspx?individual_id=20
