Fredrick Martin – After Conviction: What You Can Do Before A Lawyer Is Appointed

It has become apparent over the last 50 years that if you have money for a “Good” lawyer you will get acquitted and if you don’t you will be convicted. What is it about a good lawyer that makes the difference? Are all the other lawyers “Bad” lawyers? What makes the good lawyer good?

Frederick Martin -has written the book “AFTER CONVICTION: What You Can Do Before A Lawyer Is Appointed“, which offers viable suggestions on what the “wrongly convicted” can do for themselves in the appeal process. Knowing your case and the laws surrounding the crime one is convicted of as well as providing the names of witnesses and where to find them are just two things that can go a long way to proving innocence. These and so much more are difficult to do from behind bars but one must be actively involved in their own defense if they are to prove their innocence. The purpose of this book is to tell you what to do before a lawyer is appointed to better prepare one to help their lawyer, help them.

Host Keith Brown El talks with Fredrick Martin about his book AFTER CONVICTION: What You Can Do Before A Lawyer Is Appointed that details what can be done by those who have been falsely convicted to aid in their own appeals process.

Martin Henn – Under The Color Of Law
Under the Color of Law

The separation of powers between the Executive, Legislative and Judicial branches of our our government have been under attack for decades perhaps since the day the US Constitution was ratified. In his book Under The Color of Law author Martin Henn looked at how the tragic events of 9/11 were used to strengthen the executive’s power and negate domestic and international restrictions on torture and surveillance in the name of national security.

Host Melvin Merritt talks with author Martin Henn about his book and the ASPA the American Service Members Protection Act. He will make the case that this law rends apart the Madisonian balance of powers between the branches of government and point out the various contradictions in the Federalist Society lawyers John C. Yoo and Jack Goldsmith on the question of customary international law.
