The Criminal Docket

This week’s podcast takes you to a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing featuring special counsel Henry F. Schuelke testifying about his investigative report on the wrongful prosecution of the late Sen. Ted Stevens. In this podcast, we also explore an important constitutional issue argued last week before the U.S. Supreme Court – child sentences of life without the eligibility for parole. After hearing a bit of the argument before the Supreme Court, including Bryan Stevenson of the Equal Justice Initiative arguing on behalf of the petitioners, we speak with Kim Dvorchak, the Executive Director of the Colorado Juvenile Defender Coalition.
