On March 18, 1963 the U.S. Supreme Court decided the landmark case of Gideon v. Wainwright. The Court unanimously ruled that all defendants facing significant jail time have the constitutional right to a free attorney if they cannot afford their own. In "Chasing Gideon" Karen Houppert chronicles the stories of people in all parts of the country who have relied on Gideon's promise. "Chasing Gideon" provides crucial insight into our attempts to implement this fundamental constitutional right.
