In this half-hour webinar, U.S. District Judge Jed Rakoff discusses his new book, “Why the Innocent Plead Guilty and the Guilty Go Free: And Other Paradoxes of Our Broken Legal System.” The book explores a range of urgent issues, from the scourge of mass incarceration and the outsized power of prosecutors, to the practice of using non-prosecution agreements to address corporate malfeasance, the unreliability of eye-witness testimony, and the balance of power between the executive and judicial branches.
